Harsh reality

I chart my flight across

the swirling chaos of realities

to safely land on the island of

serene dreams of valium drugged nights

depending on ingenuity to

dodge the bullets of nightmares

across the vast expanse of whirling sand

‘cos the melodious ache of floating

in a hazed limbo, is too much to bear.

  2. We all need an escape sometimes. Reality can be brutal. But spending some time away can give you a breather. I don’t know what I’m trying to say here πŸ˜…. The poem is awesome. Keep it up!!
