My Escape

There is a ladder visible just to me, standing tall in a sea of my thoughts. It leads up and up into the sky where lies my escape. An escape from the silent shrieks of the inner me that have drowned behind my façade of smiles. An escape from the noise that falls on my ears but never on my heart. An escape from my labored breathing as I choke on my own tune. An escape from the tumult building inside me bit by bit every day.

There is a ladder visible just to me, standing tall in a sea of my thoughts. It leads up and up into the sky where lies my escape. An escape into a world where my cries are not silenced and where smiles are for real. An escape into a place where every tune reaches the heart before the ears even hear. An escape into a world where my breath turns into a soothing symphony. An escape into myself where rhythm flows and melody dances.

My life is hanging from the strings of the guitar. A ladder visible just to me stands tall in a sea of my thoughts… to lead me where lies my escape…

    We each have our vision of escape and what that means. I imagine a window or a door and I fly into the open skies of myself

  6. My favorite line is, “cries are not silenced and where smiles are for real.” There is happiness, but one is allowed to be sad. In a word, one is allowed to be real.

      Happiness is not complete if we never experience sadness… We wouldn’t cherish the happy times so much if we didn’t know how sadness felt!

    I feel like this is about me too, in a way. I’d like to climb that ladder with you.
