    Escape

    I'm almost always sick, so I'm always in and out of hospitals. Books provide a great way for me to mentally excuse myself from reality. Music does the job too. While reading I could temporarily be someone else. Imagining living in their world, even only for a little while. I...

    But How?

    I need to escape but how? Do I do it by killing or do I find a drug and use that or should I seek help and tell the world my darkest fantasy's and desires. How do I escape the questions? How?

    Stuck In Reverse...

    I often get this feeling of needing to escape. To pack up and run, I don't know where.....anywhere but here I guess. Where I live holds a lot of memories for me, most of them bad, and although I have been happy here, the memories often haunt me and take me to places in my head...

    Living

    Here I sit at my desk, thinking about the things that I want to do, I should do, I won't do, and ultimately the things that I will do regardless of the rest. I am a father, a husband and a liar. I lie to myself about the places that I want to be, about the man that I should be...

    Sometimes*

    Sometimes I just feel the need to escape from things. From life, from my mind. When things get like this, I usually pick up a Harry Potter book, or throw in a Harry Potter movie, and escape to the world of magic, and wizards, and stuff like that. It is one thing helps me.
