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.
