A Dream Come True

I never could... but I have wished to have the courage to run away many times... I think Tom Petty said it best:


You belong among the wildflowers
You belong in a boat out at sea
Sail away, kill off the hours
You belong somewhere you feel free

Run away, find you a lover
Go away somewhere bright and new
I have seen no other
Who compares with you

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong in a boat out at sea
You belong with your love on your arm
You belong somewhere you feel free

Run away, go find a lover
Run away, let your heart be your guide
You deserve the deepest of cover
You belong in that home by and by

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong somewhere close to me
Far away from your trouble and worry
You belong somewhere you feel free
You belong somewhere you feel free

200 groups so far. lol I would love to hold you in my arms and tell you everything will be OK. I love to cuddle, snuggle, suckle, kiss and public displays of affection. I to have been alone far to much.

Thank you for your kind words...


I feel the same, after my third failed marriage, and children growing older,
I barely recognize this once "wild flower"

In the last 3 or 4 years, I've often wanted to run away, but not from myself. I'd still be me, the new me, the me I'd become really happy living with, being, feeling I had finally found myself. I wanted to take that new me to a new place and start over. Perhaps it was a lark, perhaps it would have been for naught. I'll never know, but I do still have those feelings from time to time. There was someone in my life who believed in me, the me I became, and helped me along that journey of self-discovery. If that person was still in my life, I might not be "here" now, sitting at my laptop, writing this. Or perhaps I would be here at EP, but I would be writing something different and my list of groups would be .... different.

I think I understand what you mean, it's the wishing and wanting to r able to escape from what it is that binds you up. For me I can't stand it when I can't function normally and have a sane day where I can get done what I need to get done. But when that turns into more than one day its tiring, frustrating and flipin lonely and I wish I could escape that feeling.

I hear you... I've had far too many of those days...

I did run away 16 years ago when I turned 40. Long story, but it was a path of self destruction I will never go down again.. Not romantic, or exciting like a novel or a love song... ( although I do love that Tom Petty song and was actually popular when I was going through this)

Well I hope you were able to pick up the pieces... I'm not that brave... or is it foolish? Either way, I'm not going anywhere, but there are days I sure would like to just get in my car, fill up the tank and keep going forever...

I can understand wanting to run away sometimes. I never felt like I needed to run away from myself<br />
but I have wanted to run away from others.

I'm sure everyone feels like that at times, but it's only temporary. In the words of Clint Black...<br />
<br />
"Wherever you go, there you are.<br />
You can run from yourself, but you won't get far."

Yes, I know... it is only a fantasy... :)

Fantasies are fine - I've had some great ones. It just helps to realize that some can come true and some can't.

great lyrics
