I want to escape

By: Siya

I want to escape
Not from reality
But this spiral of thoughts
That haunt me like ghosts

I want to escape
Not that i did something wrong
But because i am scared
What if I couldn't stay strong?

I want to escape
Not from the darkness
But from these shadows
That stays with you only when it glows

I want to escape
Not from myself
But this hollowness that resides in me
Just like roots of a tree
That won't ever let me free
