    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...

    Anyone reading this most probably want to

    escape too at sometimes. I therefore don't need to explain myself as we all have an idea where we would like to escape to at times.

    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?

    I want to go far away.

    Away from this world to another universe. Where my troubles and anxieties don't exist. Where the beauty of the universe takes up my thoughts and curiosity. I want to walk on the rings of Saturn. I want to explore the origins of the lights in the sky. I want to see the wonders...

    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.

    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...

    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...
