When I am not me

Just lines to be read
Lifted from a page
It's then I am free

It's then I can be 
Anyone, anybody
Or just not me

Self concious, aware
Let mellow to bare
What conjures below
Rises to the air

A place in make believe 
A place to become...
To be what u want it to be....

    'Let mellow to bare/What conjures below/Rises in the air' -- Hauntingly beautiful lines, entering sublime territory. I'm a fan.

    We all need an escape at times, for me it is my writting and expression in poetry. really helped and helps me continue healing. Your poetry sounds to be theraputic in tone and hope it helps you. You are a great poet.
