The Escape
written by Allie Jones

I’ve been riding a fine line
Between dreamland and consciousness

I’ve been floating all alone
Halfway to shore

I’ve been losing my grip
On all things real

Time passes slowly
Like a melting clock

I’ve been wandering
Across this divide
Wondering not where I will end up,
But wondering what I will escape

Shapes and faces float ahead
The ever present reminder of actuality

Boats are in the distance
There’s safety in them

But my grip slips further
And I can’t hold on
To something that isn’t truly there

The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed. Buddha.

I once had a girl, or should I say, she once had me… 
She showed me her room, isn’t it good, norwegian wood? 

She asked me to stay and she told me to sit anywhere, 
So I looked around and I noticed there wasn’t a chair. 

I sat on a rug, biding my time, drinking her wine 
We talked until two and then she said, “It’s time for bed” 

She told me she worked in the morning and started to laugh. 
I told her I didn’t and crawled off to sleep in the bath 

And when I awoke, I was alone, this bird had flown 
So I lit a fire, isn’t it good, norwegian wood.
