Escape

Entertain us
Let us walk down your sloped floors
Sit amongst other dreamers

In your windowless room
We will travel to places beyond our possibilities 
We will cry manufactured tears
Laugh along with unseen laughers
We will walk or run along roads we will never travel

Famous people will be our companions 
We will fall in love 
Hearts will pound in our chests

Scare us 
Make us scream
Let us feel something
Do not let us be dissapointed
Take our buttered hands in yours
Let our salted lips murmer your praises
Give our lives some meaning, if only for these few hours
Entertain us

    I like this Richard! The thought of playing a role if only for a few hours and managing to be the source of pleasure or pain for someone else' emotions is a powerful one. Well delivered!

    A nice way to remind everyone to keep on writing, dreaming, escaping reality and coming back from our inner travels with bunches of whatever we collected on the way back home...I love the idea! Thanks for sharing, Rick!
