Unplanned Escape

Sensing the upcoming mayhem,

I just stood still,

Trying to make sense of them,

Couldn’t leave the place at will.

Briskly walking towards me,

The girl with blue eyes,

Looking for a partner to flee,

A decision most unwise.

Voices rising in a chorus,

In a tightly packed hall,

She looked for an escape,

Standing next to the wall.

Shaking, I grabbed her hand,

And said,”I’ve found it!”

A gateway completely unmanned,

To move away from this conflict.

And then we ran from the wall,

Splitting for just a bit

Reaching the end of the hall,

Leaving the orchestra pit.
