    A Dream Come True

    Sometimes I just wanna pack up my clothes,

    get in my car and drive till I'm far away and no one knows me, has any expectations of me.... I'd kind of like to disappear. Life with no strings would be so freeing. But lonely. It's the lonely that makes me think twice every time. Because I love my family and wouldn't want to...

    Where Would I Go??

    My first instinct when things start going wrong is to hide.  I do my daily "need to things", but afterward I just don't want to face anyone.  I will drive around in my car for hours. When I tire of that I will just find a place to park.  Sit in my car...

    Through thick and thin,

    there's always an outline on my skin. Beaten to purple and blue, sometimes I wish I ran when I had the chance. But I don't care, it's all over now. My world is crashing down, and there's nothing I can do about it. All over the news, someone's dead. I sometimes wish I could just...

    And Never Return

    Bleh. =/ Life gets so hectic at times that I think it’ll never come right. Family, friends, school… it gets too much. I’d run off alone though. I wouldn’t expect or ask someone to come/go with me. I just want to be alone with me, myself and I (which...

    Sometimes when I'm walking to school,

    or walking anywhere in general, i get this almost euphoric feeling. It makes me want to keep walking. To not make that left or right turn to my destination. I just want to keep going until i end up far far away. During these times I have almost no train of thought. Its almost...

    I sometimes wish I was born free of

    responsibilities. Leave everything behind and travel places. Do whatever comes your way. Earn your bread. Move on. *sigh if only it was so easy. I don't expect that life would be easy but the running away part is impossible.

    I'm feeling so melancholy and unable to deal with the long holiday weekend or the parties. At least my work distracts me from this feeling and gives me a sense of purpose. I want to turn my phone off and disappear. I'd go somewhere totally desolate, calm, peaceful. Just myself...

    Fantasy

    Yes - running away seems to be a frequent fantasy lately.   I know I won't do it, but I'm so sick of things the way they are.  I am not really unhappy, I am financially comfortable, have good relationships with my family, love my kids, love my home and neighborhood, the cars I...

    to be honest I have a very loving family but sometimes I wonder what it would be like to just leave. Like in the middle of the night, just start walking without any real destination.

    Running Away Is Easy, Coming Back Is Hard.

    I've run. Gotten in my car and driven down roads I didn't know just to get as far away as I could. South, then west. Drove for hours and hours until my eyes were closing and I had to pull to the side. Nap, pee, and drive again. It's exhilarating for the first few hours, then...

    I've thought of being in a big city,

    alone at night. Walking through boulevards, with eyes filled with glowing fascination. Appearing as if I am a lost person in a new world, ready to embark an adventure.
