I am running on a cloud

away from life

out there it's too loud

I float above the cries

the pain

the nonstop lies

I drift into the fluff

pushing everything away

I know I'm not tough

So here I sit on this cloud

knowing I failed

at being unbowed

The author's comments:

I relate to this piece in wanting to run away from my problems and feeling like I am watching my life from an outside point of view wishing I was stronger.
