Nocturnal Escapade

Shut in a tin cage, you sit
So close to me
I miss you and want to reach out
And slowly I am drifting
Carried away to that grey place
I can hear, and then I can’t
I am here, and then I’m not
I dive deep…
And then you pull my hair and my head out of the water
I force the air in and open my eyes
And blink because everything is suddenly in colour
And I reach out to you

Artist's Description

I often take mind excursions and they always feel like I’m diving in a grey lake, falling deeper and deeper, deep in my thoughts. Grey because nothing has been set yet – all my thoughts are still raw and unshaped.

I am aware there are people around me and sometimes I want to make a connection with them, but I am too distracted. But I’m still aware of what’s going on around me.

When I am ‘woken up’ from my drifting state, I always feel like I’ve just snapped back into reality.

I wrote this in 2001, originally in another language.
