Dodging Demons

4 years ago

Please get a glimpse of one of my new poems...

I run away

hiding in books

chasing sentences that do not resemble me

in an effort not to see

the chaos that is my life

I look into the darkness

for a place to lay my head

where I don’t have to face reality

I disappear instead

dodging demons lurking behind unseen corners

don’t want to deal with reality any longer...
