In the Spirit of Escapism

We immerse ourselves in songs

in the spirit of joy

we dance,

to dislodge our demons

In the spirit of freedom

if we are truly praying

it is in that ever-rarer spirit of compassion

we condemn

in the spirit of superiority

we cloak our darkness in the purest colors

and we believe wholly and blindly

in a greater power

in a spirit of escapism

running from accountability

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else.

I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
