Terrible Escapes

Drawn to the periphery
You can never go back
You’ve experienced something that has flooded your world
Your perception is gone
You come back to your life and everything’s different
Nothing seems to be important
There’s no meaning because when you lie your head down at night you’re back there
To that place, that moment
The periphery
This has become your life
Everything else is just an escape that you don’t want to be in
You never wanted to be safe again
You thrive on this other life
But tragically you are given the escape
You have made my escape tolerable
What have I done for yours?
