Escaping the Unescapable

Can’t we pause for a moment

and just breathe?

All these thoughts running wild in my mind,

all these queries wearying my soul down,

all these emotions suffocating my heart,

what am I supposed to do with all this?

How can I ever break free from myself?

This unescapable heat of constant anxiety,

this mindlessly terrorizing panic,

this unreasonably raw grief and guilt,

trying to consume away my whole existence.

How does one even run away from all this?

I need to escape,

escape this heat, these streets, these thoughts,

escape this grief, this guilt, these expectations,

escape all the things that surround me,

and all the things that consume me.

I need to run away,

run away and never look back.

But where can I run off to,

so as to disappear completely,

as if I never walked on this Earth?

No where.


Wrote something new after a very long time. Let me know what you think of it!

    We can’t escape anything!
    Eventually we have to face our share in this world.
    But, the cure of everything is only “patience and trust in Almighty”.

    They say there’s a vast nothingness of quite and potential within us all, all we need to do is be grounded and quiet our minds.

    Great lines, sound queries

    To be in limbo, a state of Vertigo…no up or down…no left nor right. The way you write that the mind can close in the heart, it’s ironic that your words also hide the answer to freedom. You say the escape is nowhere but with a beautiful mind such as yours, that’s all you need to be free for a little while. Your emotions in your writing opens your mind and sets it on voyages where you take it just as mines do. Society is our pressure sunshine, but the pen is our freedom that sends the mind on vacation, that’s what I get from your words.🌹
