(2010-11)


Following the footsteps. I thought I was here alone, but it seems there’s someone in the distance. Why are they leading me through muddy waters? This beautiful mind hideaway has become corrupted and altered by my fears. What are they trying to say by forcing these visions upon me? Stay true, explore, just keep on moving. Just show me the way, but can I trust you? I don’t think we’ve formally met. I only see you in my dreams, and you always keep your distance.


Is there any escape…is this my escape?


With hopes of an eventual resurrection, I walk to break free of the fear.
