I have attempted to write and describe what I have seen over the years.

Escapism

by bernardtwindwil

Escapism...

Is the tendency to seek distraction and relief from unpleasant realities, especially by seeking entertainment or engaging in fantasy.

The reality sucks.........

I am nothing. I am nobody. I sit on this upwelling emotion and pain. I can not see beyond my eyes. I cannot breathe I must be insane How can my heart beat the next note in my symphony of life

the guts of it......

Inside this parody of living plagued with overwhelming strife My hands dead cold quivering useless spreading the ice To arms and legs, mouth is dry I cannot swallow been so a wice

are the clawing need....

My breath so short so foul it tastes like death smells The dark emptiness inside is palpable it roils and swells My bowels tight and loose with a mind of their own

to seek some sort...

I lay in my bed without comfort I toss to and fro and groan I am so exhausted but sleep will not come to take me away Let me escape this unbearable pain in which I can not stay

of respite from....

I need to rest but fear of the dream turns every night Into a battle of avoidance and relief or terrible fright I want to die I cannot move even to relieve my soul

this undignified....

Please anyone please just shoot me and provide my parole From this suffocating darkness this hellish living doom Where I am enshrouded in dark heavy folds here in my tomb

excuse for life.

As I stand, sit, or roll imprisoned in this dismal landscape Please, please someone, something please help me escape
