Did I Escape? - Poem by Annie Cordelia Adams

nothing seems to go right even when it's
going great
i seem to lose it all and turn it down
i meant to turn it up and take the blame
now i'm making a getaway

do i escape
or do i just float in place?
this world's always in my face
do i escape
or did you come to make me feel something?
i'd rather feel nothing than have my world between your teeth

so tonight i'm changing so my memories
can finally sleep
i never meant to love this whole damn town
even though i know it wouldn't all work out
now i'm in my car going steep

do i escape
or do i just float in place?
this world's always in my face
do i escape
or did you come to make me feel something?
i'd rather feel nothing than have my heart between your teeth

do i escape
did i escape
did i escape so high?
i'd rather feel nothing
i'd rather feel nothing
did i escape this time?

do i escape
or do i just float in place?
this world's always in my face
do i escape
or did you come to make me forget my youth?
i'd rather feel nothing than have my soul burned by your truth
