Seeking a Hiding Place

Sunday October 18, 2020

I had no idea how I was
going to escape.
I was considered a bit of
an escape artist. A restless spirit,
I didn’t seem contented
to be where I was.
Unable to live in the now.

I felt distinctly
Out of place; not entirely
comfortable where I was;
revisiting old places has never
proved a great idea.

I am always looking
for a safe space
where I can be accepted
for who I am;
not judged, not condemned.
Is there such a place?

I believe that it is important
to work at being;
constantly searching for that
safe place where I could
be myself.
At least, I strongly believed
others had a taste for life.
that seemed lacking in mine.

The only way to climb out
Of the hole that I have
tumbled into
is by a self-acceptance
still a work in progress.
I know the solution but
don’t always apply
what I know
to my life.

No visible symptoms, no running nose, just a head full of darkness. No fever or rash, no fractures or strains, just a longing for something; unable to explain.
