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.
