Escape From Reality

When a thought develops, it is hard to put it on to paper.
To be able to shut out all external noise, to be carried away in
thought; that would be a nice skill to have. When I have a
worry, or a disturbing thought, I can not run away. It is a
monster, a beast bearing its teeth, a bad dream, an enemy that
follows me where ever I go. I can not get rid of it. It hunts me
down chases me around, until I fall back with exhaustion. Then,
slowly at first, it begins to approach me. It moves silently
across the ground, like a lion stalking prey. I lay there
silently, paralyzed with anxiety. I wish real hard that this
terrible nightmare will go away, but I know that it will finish
me off sooner than I could ever imagine...

Haunting thoughts and daunting taunts
keep me awake so many nights
Flaunting wants and wanting jaunts
seeking a way to end my frights ...
And still the beast remains as he was.
I know the feeling!

Excellent story telling! The imagery really takes one away.

There are nightmares where one needs to wake from quickly, this poem sounds like a description of that. Interesting form, like a story not a poem.

HI, thanksBetty, for pointing out that wording error. I apreciate it, when people comment.

Incredibly though provoking, and truthful. Though I must say, I am slightly envious, for it seems all I ever can do is escape, but when I'm in reality, I'm too realistic...I guess all of us are bothered, either too far one way or the other. Beautiful writing...I'm going to keep my eye out for more.
