A well trodden path

leads to my escape.

A place to go and

hide from my mistakes.

A corner of my mind

I keep for myself.

Where no one intrudes

and I truly excel.

For in the real world

I am but a shadow.

Where all my dreams

have reached their plateau.

  3. Beautiful poem but kind of sad to me with the ending. Like your efforts aren’t coming bearing fruit. Just my interpretation. 🙂
