Sweet Escape

My paradise
My sanctuary
My place of saving
When all else is lost
A confusing mess
An sweet escape
From the brainwashing
And self-harm
The confusion I feel
When you make me feel
Loved and unworthy
All at once
A place I could
Run away
And free myself
From the chains of society
Bound by the expectations
And standards set for me
A place I wouldn't feel alone
A place I wouldn't be swimming
Just to feel like I'm doing
A place I could be accepted
A sweet escape
