My Escape From Pain

by Barb Hensongispsaca

When pain gets so intense for me
I take myself away.
I've learned just how to give myself
a mental holiday.

It took a lot of practice that
left scars upon my soul;
but worth it for a few more hours-
pain free, that was my goal.

I put some music in the air,
the sounds of nature's best,
then take myself to where I want
just for some pain free rest.

The sounds of whales surround my mind,
or wolves cry in the night.
When thunder storms rage all 'round me,
I sink in their delight.

Sometimes the loon in haunting song
takes me to gentle peace;
and other times the wind chimes sound
will cause my pain to cease.

I listen to the rainfall on
the tin roof of my dreams,
at other times the rippling falls
of nature's soothing streams.

I close my eyes then pick a sound,
it's different with each turn.
I drift away on waves of peace
until my pain returns.

The sounds of nature on CD's are great to drift with when peace is needed.
