Let us find our escapes in each other.
I am sure, we will be able to breathe there,
I can sleep with no worries.
Hold me close and stay near.
I have slept to escape for years
to avoid understanding the reality
that eventually suffocates me
and frustration that fills my eyes with tears.
Let me get lost in a sleep so deep
in the safe chamber of your embrace
that I finally feel safe like a baby.
I am tired of handling confusing, toxic circumstances.
My arms are open for you
if you feel the need to rest too.
I can be your safe space.
Let us find, within each other, our escapes.
