No Getaway

No Getaway

i was scared of the person
lurking just beneath the surface
just inside
they were there
would not hide
always chasing me
i tried so hard to get away
but there was no car waiting for me
i could not face the person
below the surface of myself
no getaway
no chance to escape
from the shadow
that wished to seal my fate
i yelled and i screamed
tortured by the mirror stalker
that struck every time i dreamed
being a dream walker
i had to be cautious
but soon, the person below went
i do not know why
it was just one day and things were different
it was a change within me
i felt a lot better
i let the demon go free
and i was more together about everything
no longer my own worst enemy

James Garratt – August 1995
