To escape the thoughts in my head 

The swirling mess that I’ve come to dread 

The innermost demons I chose to hide 

From everyone, choosing to dive 

I try to escape it, try to hide 

From the things I have kept inside 

Maybe give myself a chance 

By pacing around the room, trying to dance 

Distracting myself so that I can survive 

The pounding in my mind 

Trying to understand why is this happening to me 

Maybe read a book or three 

Or try escaping my reality for theirs

A much better world to bare

Then the one of my own despair  

So that one day I may be free

From these thoughts dragging at me
