Treasure Island

Marcellus Watts


Escaping Reality


Leaving the very spot I am
Leaving behind myself
Leaving behind my troubles
Running away or leaving…
There's no difference
Escaping from life itself
Though be it temporary it's enough
For a break I'm in desperate need of
A short break or long break
Let me hide away from life itself
Cruel and relentless
No matter what I'll never truly escape
Life will find me and retrieve me
It'll pump me with fear, depression, and despair
Life and reality will find me once again
There's no way I can escape them
As I hide in my fantasies
Let me pretend to fly away, far, far away…
Leave me with my fantasies
I've escaped reality
For now I'm free until reality retrieves me
Please let me escape reality
Fantasies please hide me away
Imaginations please carry me away
Reality is on its way to thwart my escape
Once again I'm escaping reality
Soon it'll find me then pump me with anger, sadness and angst
Let me run and escape to my fantasies
Allow me to escape reality
Let me pretend to fly away to my fantasies

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Wrote this around Sept 2011. I was inspired by a song and thought yeah i feel like this also. It's just explaining how you know when your feeling annoyed and stressed out and just want to have a break from life for a few hours. A bit childish but i love how it turned out.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
