Mental Health

I just want to escape.

Written by Alma Claire / Art by Joyce Lee

spinning  spinning

’round  ’round,

spiralling down and searching ground,


grasping something

hold me now;


– escape –


escape my thoughts , escape the pain,

run away from voices inside my brain,

drown out noise and block the drain,


stop relenting waves;



itchy itchy beneath my skin,

like i can’t bear to be within



this world

or the places i’ve been,


like i am stained in all my glorious sin;

– escape –


escape the ugliness inside my mind,

run away from things i’ve tried


 forget bury hide;

play dumb and play blind


i just want to escape.
