Drawing a Map

To Nowhere

We all go to this place in our mind

This place where no one else can go

Because you're the only one who can see it

& all you can do is try your best to describe what's inside

But it never really paints the full picture

& you wish you could just show them

So they could understand

This place that you always go to

Maybe if they could get a small glimpse

This place wouldn't feel so barren & isolating

If you could just bring even one person in

Cause I'm desperately trying to explain

Some invisible world, in some made up place

That sometimes I run from

But go to escape

See this world is what I make it

But sometimes the seeds I plant there

Just won't grow

& maybe if someone else could be there

At least I wouldn't feel so alone...
