I want to be away
I want to be away from all this drama
I don't need my dad nor my mama
With every passing moment I feel a punch in my gut,
I can feel the lump developing in my throat.
I don't need this life,
I no longer want to strive,
I just want to be away.
Far away from this worldly theatre,
I no longer want to be an audience or a spectator.
This day reminds me why I want what I want.
I just want myself and a bookshelf.
I don't need people.
I need peace.
I don't like fights and quarrel
I just want to be a happy squirrel living her life in the jungle.
My heart is hurt.
My emotions are shut.
I just want to fly away and never come back,
I just want to leave this nest ,
that moment of solace will be the best.
I will fly away to a lonely destination where there will be no one to bother me,
I will finally be free.
Love is a poison we all drink willingly and paralyse ourselves with vulnerability .
With the devasting pain that accompanies love we all cry in unison.
