Hide From It All - Poem by Ivana Mabry

close your eyes and hide from it all-
go to a place where you are big yet small.
when your world turns upside down,
where smiles are known as frowns
where pink is green and dark is brite,
where we drink all day and run all nite,
where the friend is the enemy and to laugh is to cry,
where you bleed just to bleed and never wonder why.
to love then lose then love again to take your life and never condemn-
to talk with out words and hear all the sounds-
the screaming, the shaking...the dead in the ground.
it's to take and take, But never give back,
it's to sniff, to shoot and smoke crack.
here you can feel the colors and ride the sounds
here you are neither heaven nor hell bound.
in this world sin doesn't exist
you can yell and scream, but never get pissed.
and you're shit out of luck when you need a friend
and when you're heart is broken and too hard to mend-
just close your eyes and hide from it all
just think of the colors of winter and fall-
just hold your breath and count to ten,
then spin in circles again and again,
it's impossible to forget things in the past,
especially when memories always last.
even through death these things are made
i guess it all depends on how they are wade.
