I Want To Escape

I'm 16 and sometimes I feel I just have to get away.


So I run.

A few days ago I went from home.

I said I was going for a walk, but didn't state where, for how long etc. It was on the spur of the moment.

I walked until it was dark - my family and friends were trying to phone but I ignored them. I didn't want anyone to know where I was. How else could I escape?

The hardest bit is coming back.

And knowing I have hurt them.

I don't want to hurt them. Sometimes it isn't even their fault.


I just have to get away from them.

Get away from life.


And this is the only way I can do it.

When will this feeling leave me?<br />
A year later, and nothing has changed. I still feel the same.<br />
The need to escape.<br />
And I'm no better at controlling it.<br />
In fact, I think I give in to it a lot more than I used to.
