1. Escape from real life

Hi there, everyone that reads this little thing. I’m anonymous here, I made my profile just for this poem. And yes, I have another profile, but I’m not going to tell you which one (because I use my real name on that one)

I think this might be one of my most personal poems ever (and probably the only one translated to English, too). I often have this dream where I climb up a wall, fall, break a leg and then … nothing. I’m still just me, I have no worries. The weird thing is, that neither have I family. I’m just me, all by myself. I often think that the dream is so wrong. I find it inappropriate to dream about me but not my family, they are just gone. What I find even more wrong is that I am okay with it, I live my life just as I want it. This place is my escape when something is wrong, and when I go to bed I can easily think about the climbing wall for hours, then fall asleep and dream about it afterwards. I always wake up smiling, ready to seize the day, make it my own, make a difference. It rarely happens, but it is always a good start. I never bear a grudge, really. But when I have an off-day where I just want to be alone, I sit in the cafeteria for hours, thinking about my wall. My world.

An escape from real life

The climbing wall seems to be endless

Up, up, up it goes

Trying to reach the very top

Without success

Falling, hitting the ground

With a dump and a smash and then

Silence

Someone pulling

Calling the name

A name that doesn’t exist

A blurry name, said by a blurry face

Weeks later

Walking around

Broken bones, strong mind

Being the nice guy

The strong person with no problems

The child with no parents, no siblings

Anymore

Waking up

Exploring life, realising that nothing goes right

Back to the dream, the escape from real life

The place where you can be strong

Where people cares

Without judging

The place where being alone is okay

But loneliness is forbidden

A place of refuge

My place, my world
