Escape From Reality

Escape From Reality

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

If we could only have oblivion...

"
Skipping stones,
running along,
this shadowy path
leading me on.

Away from my present,
wanting to escape reality,
I can go any lengths
to forget ... who I really am.

At this time of life,
I would gladly accept
Amnesia ...

it would help me become
the person
everyone wants to see.

For many a times,
I have done what pleases me.
(Actually nearly always)

Seldom caring, 
for the people around me.
(My parents, my friends, my family)

Yes, they are disappointed, I know.
I can see the concern 
in their very eyes.

Dripping shame covering my eyes;
I turn my back,
and gladly welcome this oblivion ...

which will help me be
the person 
they want me to be ...

Escaping from reality... is all we ever want to do...
Makes us feel...alive...not trapped within the bars of having to be and do what they expect of us.

This is a great write. From experience, it would not be easy to word. So well done and thank you for sharing this

Our parents really are something and wish we would do everything the way they picture it in their heads. What can we really do if it is not for their nudging and pleading? It is because of that, that we do the total opposite and strive by our selves

Hmm well, if only it were that easy..
Thank you, Gullia, for adding your thoughts here ☺
I love this poem. I escape from reality through various mediums and sometimes I wish I could stay there and I can relate to this poem to a startling degree. I loved your use of the word Oblivion, it's scary yet so comforting.

This is a great poem that is fairly insightful i regards to the human mind.

Damn, I wish I could steal this concept away from you! ;P

Good job, Kay! :)

If our minds can create fantasy and make it into reality. Then maybe we dont have to deny ourselves in escaping the abyss of reality.

People always want to escape the reality, but we cannot. We can go inside our heart and contemplate to find peace. The true existence comes from within.

The feeling of disconnect at times, of wanting to be free of 'the ties that bind' can be overwhelming at times.
It can make us appear aloof, uncaring, heartless even and can conjure in us a feeling of guilt that we are not like most of our kith and kin who love living in one anothers pockets YumnaKay.
It makes life difficult because we start to wonder if we are 'weird' and can even lead to mentall illness - the mind in a constant state of flux.
Its not as rare as you might think.

You did a great job here. I feel this was hard to put down on paper - emotionally hard. So well done.
I can relate.

I think many of us would pick amnesia if it were as easy as ticking a box on a form. We try to please so many, but when we aren't being ourselves, it makes the task all the harder. Beautifully captured.

"I can see the concern in their very eyes
Dripping shame covering my eyes"

These lines went the distance to solidify this writing for me. A wonderfully honest piece of poetry, it is something that we can all relate to in some fashion. The anxiety that comes with the validation of others, or lack thereof, before the validation of ourselves.

Easier said than done, but I hope you find that inner peace, in time. :)

This was a fine write, and I'm glad I stumbled upon it. Keep it up!
