I am on a ride in my mind
It is not a hard place to find
It’s where I go when I don’t want to be here
…In reality
Whatever that is…

This is about mental escapes which we all need in order to survive the stresses of everyday life.

I have a deep love for expressionism – ‘Expressionistic artist sought to develop pictorial forms which would express their innermost feelings rather than represent the external world. Expressionist painting is intense, passionate and highly personal, based on the concept of the painter’s canvas as a vehicle for demonstrating emotions. Violent, unreal color and dramatic brushwork make the typical expressionistic painting quiver with vitality.’ This is what I try to achieve when I paint.

    Naught can cast but an envious shadow at you
    as you take this ‘ride of amusement’
    Enjoy it during its short tenure
    “Cause here, youll have to step out carefully
    But mind you, careful of the manure

    Thanks for reading tommyjo. However, I beg to differ, it has never been a short ride for me, I’ve been doing it for my whole life. That is how I avoid the manure. Smiles from Jane.

    in a world so disatisfying its comforting to know we all can make our own worlds to escape to.

    I know how you feel in this poem, I sometimes turn of my lamp turn off the computer screen close my eyes lean back and return to a world where I am free from the grey of this world… I happen to have a great soundtrack whilst I’m there… lol

  • Thanks for relating Daath, and thanks for reading, commenting, and your time. My mind happens to be my favorite place to go, especially when I am tired. Smiles from Jane.
