Favorite Quote:
"Experience is not what happens to you; it's what you do with what happens to you." - Aldous Huxley


Let’s hop a train,
Leave our whole lives behind us,
Figure-shaped cut-outs
Where we used to stand.
Let’s chase our fancies
And count on our fortunes
To take us to where we’re
Too scared to have gone.

Let’s run away,
Not a penny between us,
Not a clue in our heads,
Nor a care in the world.

Let’s take the first flight to nowhere,
Leave our duties behind:
A gift to the tarmac.
I’ll watch from my window
And take to the sky,
Squeezing your hand as we go.
Alive and carefree and safe from the world,
But oh, for how long can we run?
