    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.

    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...

    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?

    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...

    Too often people use "sorry" as a tool to escape dealing with the real consequences of their actions. It is supposed to convey regret and empathy, isn't it?
