A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Music Prompt #31: “I Can’t Escape Myself” by The Sound

First let me apologize for the delay, Rose requested a substitute for Friday and I only just saw her email buried in my overflowing inbox.  I have been swamped well beyond my capacity to cope this month. With that in mind I have brought you a song, a disturbing song (the video makes it more so, just listening or reading the lyrics is fine), that deals with mental illness.

So many feelings
Pent up in here
Left all alone, I’m with

The one I most fear.

I’m sick and I’m tired
Of reasoning;
Just want to break out,
Shake off this skin.

I, I can’t
Escape myself.

All my problems
Loom larger than life
I can’t swallow
Another slice.

Seems like my shadow
Mocks every stride.
I learn to live with
What’s trapped inside?

Use the above song as inspiration for any form of creative expression (including but not limited too short stories, poems, lyrics, artwork, photography, covers, music/dance videos etc.)


If you are a musician use this as an opportunity to showcase your own work.

You have 1 week to complete this challenge.

You do not have to include the video but please mention the song/artist in your post.

When you’re done, TAG the post Music Challenge and Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, and add your link to the Link Button. And don’t forget to link to this post or copy your post’s URL into the comments. We can read your post sooner that way.
