Drift

Close my eyes to drift

silently away

to a place where I wish

I could stay.

Where my worries vanish

without trace

and all my dreams

take their place.

Here I can feel like I belong,

a world where my

mind and body are strong.

Smiling faces

greet me as I arrive

making me realise

what it is to be alive.

Not like the real world

where everything is a task

and where

everyone hides

their true feelings

behind a mask.

No one here has to live by rules

or implement

the stupid demands of fools.

For a brief while this is

my escape

from the day to day trials

of the human race.
