Sometimes the world around me is a world I don’t understand.
And so I hide in my own world, a magic mystery land.
A land where dragons fly the skies, and I’m their only queen.
A land only I inhabit, that only I have seen.
I hide away from reality, though I know that’s not the way
and I can stay quite hidden here, for many, many days.
But if you want to join me, come on in, there’s room for two
I will make that exception, in my mystery land, for you.
Being queen in a made up world, it does come at a price
and though the dragons amuse me, and are really, very nice,
it can sometimes get lonely, as I go away to hide –
and when it does I’d want someone to be here at my side.
Perhaps we could build a castle, a cave, a hide-away?
Erect our very own mystery tent where you and I can play?
And you can tame your own dragon – I have named mine Finn
and we could go on a cloud chase and fly the northern winds.
Yes, I know that I am dreaming, that this world of mine ain’t real.
And furthermore I know escaping life won’t make wounds heal.
I know I shouldn’t go there, I know that I can’t hide
and most of all I know that you will not be by my side.
No you won’t ride a dragon or chase the northern wind
and you will never know such twirling madness deep within.
A figment of my twisted mind, that is all you are
as close to me, to real, as the night sky’s most shining star.
Today, the last day before NaPoWriMo 2015 kicks off, I’ve chosen to go with Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie’s Photo Challenge #54 and be inspired by the image by Holunder at Deviantart. I love these kind of poem-y stories, but I tend to make them go on forever…
