Escape

Can’t sleep through the night
When the thought of you is
Constantly playing on my mind

Won’t stop even for death
Running further away still
Huffing till I’m out of breath

Can’t slow down can’t speed up
Can’t fight the thoughts can’t not
Can’t bring myself to give up

The light of dawn spreads across
The night sky no longer prevails
The way my feelings overwhelm
My mind for the fight is to the grave

Can’t tune out the voices
They’re just upset because
Of my questionable choices

It’s an untruth that courage is might
It’s harsh but I’m at the end of the
Tunnel and there’s no light

Consumed by the dreaded memory
Haunted by the ghosts of the past
Unable to appreciate scenery
I need an escape and I need it fast
