Happily Ever After Slips Away

In NEW!, poetry on November 13, 2010 at 5:06 PM

Pretend away my sadness

take my hand

pull me towards make-believe

show me how again

make all this life

go somewhere else

let something better

take its place

~

Pretend away the lonliness

fill up the emptiness

hold up the mirror

I so desperately

want to see

a reflection I recognize

a person I know is me

~

It’s been a long, long time

since I laughed

It’s been a long, long time

since I heard laughter

It’s been a long, long time

since I remembered

or

sat around a dinner table

or

looked into another’s eyes

or

saw that spark

or

sparkles of light

sparkles with life

or just

shared a moment of pure joy

just for a second

or just

felt like it’s worth it

just

for a moment

~

It’s been a long, long time

since I remembered

~

Millions in this city

Makes me truly lonely

when I am alone

Pretend with me

I want to come back home
