I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
Summary of Poem
Dream escape is a poem describing her feelings of being lost. She is not able to find her way home. As each path confuses her mind she begins to panic. Then suddenly it seems like she has been trapped inside a magic trick when she senses a blanket beneath her toes. She opens her eyes and realizes she was only dreaming.

She walks out the door for a second,
when suddenly she finds herself lost
on a familiar road
that doesn’t seem the same.
Each path leads to confusion,
a warmth rushes over her body,
panic fills her chest,
feelings of frustration overwhelm her
when her feet can no longer find their way home.
Then suddenly, just like being trapped in a magic illusion
she senses a blanket
lingering beneath her toes,
she abruptly opens her eyes,
seeing herself tucked in bed
like Dorothy of the Wizard of Oz.
