Escape to a Place Sublime


Sitting here in solitude
Alone inside my mind
I need a bit of altitude
Need to feel that high
Escape from all reality
If only for some time
Leaving this normality
For a place sublime

    Short, but very well expressed - the need to escape from the realities of this world. (Report) Reply

    Minimally exquisite. This is the language which lifts poetry to a place of elevation. Just one tiny polish please. Because it has such a fine tone, this line needs attention.

    I need a BIT OF altitude.

    I need a LITTLE altitude
