Escape

Escape Stiff neck won't move this mornin'--"Ouch!" Must come from sleepin' on the couch. But why go sleep in that big bed All by myself (a thought I dread)? It's not as lonesome here--instead-- False comfort and illusion wed. For this I can so often vouch... My only price, is just this--"Ouch!" 2006©deborah burch

Is it escape or is it coming closer to self? On the couch I am with my self. Not a bad place to be, the couch. Especially when the rest of the world seems less inviting. A stiff neck keeps us facing forward.

What a wonderful little write my friend! I really enjoyed the rhyming scheme for this poem! I can totally relate with this person wanting to sleep on the couch instead of the bed due to his loneliness feelings that he has! I was there at one early part of my life! I hope that this is not your situation now! I love your write that I have read this evening Don! Great Work!
