My guitar is an escape route.
One strum to the strings,
My ears are silenced from the world.
Each note being played
Pulls my soul further away from reality.
My heart beats
To the rhythm of the music.
Life is struggling to call me back,
My guitar in convincing enough,
For me to stay.

This poem was written for my creative writing class. We had to write about an inatimate object that ment alot to us. I chose my guitar because its a huge stress reliever, and it was given to me from my mom so it means alot.
