    Private Escape

    More often then not, I drift into an imaginary world, where I actually feel safe. As odd as that may sound to some people, it's true. When I was younger, I was tormented and harassed, so I began to retreat inside myself. I began creating this little world, in order to escape...

    Where I know nothing of the pains of my past. Where I no longer feel every scar left.. Where my thoughts no longer attack me. Where I am happy. Where he is by my side, arms wrapped around me tight like it has been said over a thousand times. Where there are no broken promises...

    Because of the many challenges I face in life

    right now, it's kind of hard to only live in this bitter reality. I'd rather dream. I have an imaginary world that I've become connected and attached to. I go there when I'm scared, angry, or sad. And I feel the people in this world are always with me. I don't know if this is...

    I can always find refuge in my reveries.

    They're the only things I have control over. At work, I completely dissociate myself from this material world and escape into my head. It's the only way I can make work bearable.
