We all have our ways of “getting away”
Those things we do to escape felling angry or upset
To clear their head
And feel at least marginally better.
To try and forget
For a time at least.
Some can just “remove” themselves
Simply walk away
And be fine.
It’s not that easy
Some find comfort in being busy
They’ll throw themselves into distractions
Giving no time think
Moving so fast
That they can believe
That they can leave it all behind.
Finding solace in running
In drawing and painting.
They find solace in doing and creating.
Drowning out the emotions.
We allow ourselves to get lost in something else
Whether that’s a person or a world.
In comforting facts or works of fiction.
We let ourselves go in the words and stories of others
While letting our own ideas flow and be free.
Regardless of how we do it
And we try our damnedest to not look back.
