Poetry Contest 3rd Place: Astral Plane

This poem was the third place winner in the 2019 Words Unlocked poetry contest hosted by the Center for Educational Excellence in Alternative Settings. 

A place,

where fear is non-existent.

A place,

where you’re not forced to move decisions.

It’s the same place

where no sane man is a citizen;

it’s the same place,

for me to go visiting,

my grasp on

reality must be slipping.
