Hiding From The World

Updated on December 31, 2017

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Sometimes I just feel like hiding away

Packing my dreams and take them with me somewhere far away

Away from the bad emotions of human beings

Away to a place where all things are possible with just a simple belief

I need to hide my mind and keep it clean from life scum

Blocking all hypocorism, feathering my shoulders from the tonne

Now, where can I find this place of solace?

Will it be deep in the forest by the flowing streams?

Or will it be my insanity, my subconscious imprisoned in my dreams?

I have to hide, I need to hide from this world

My mind simply cannot burden any more

Look! Soldiers signing up to kill, Presidents clicking red buttons to destroy the Earth floor

Taxes upon taxes, when will we break free from the matrix?

I wonder, Is Jesus lost? Or are we controlled by Hades?

Sir, Can you direct me to someplace safe?

Somewhere I can unplug, scream from the depth of my lungs that I am free without being tazed

Where can I hide? This door is closed, this window is shut

Or should I play dead and have this era take me and simply give up?

My fingers tremble as I use the tears to wash my tired face

With hope of truth fading rapidly as I see no righteous ways

I see the law maker swindling and becoming a protected law breaker

As religions fire warheads upon children in dispute of who is the true maker

I see wealth being used as a shield, for those secret keepers

Blood sacrifices, missing children, same organ reapers

My mind, my mind is wailing

My sanity, my sanity is fading

Where can I hide?

Please, won’t someone let me know?

Will this revolver in my hand let me know?

I look at myself in the mirror, and take a look at the mess of humans through the Window

Just on squeeze, now my burden is no more

      I’m an introvert like Bill so my tendency is also to hide. If I ride then maybe things will improve by the time I’m ready to reappear. I enjoyed this poem.

      I'm an introvert so my default setting is to hide away.

      I just came out of my cave long enough to wish you a very Happy New Year. Let's hope 2018 brings a glimmer of love.

      We all need a hiding spot but this has words of feeling how creatively written and how you implied them. I deeply enjoyed the read
