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

Take my hand

Pretend away all this sadness

Take my hand

Show me again

I can imagine

Pull me out

Pull me in

Let me go

Take my hand

Just pretend

~

Oh a daydream at least

Don’t say it’s too late for me

Pretend away the end

I can’t stand to feel it fading

I am reaching

I am reaching

~

I forgot how….

to fly

I forgot how….

to…

~

All I do is stare.

Alone in a room.

Afraid to go out.

I forgot how.

Wondering what it is like to die

Wondering what it is like to live

Wondering what it is like to grow old

Wondering if I will see the world die

Wondering if I am

one of the many who live and die

and are lost

and are

Forgotten

Leaving no imprint

No mark

of existence.

~

Wondering what makes all the pain worth it

Wondering if maybe I can just end it

Wondering now if once and for all

Once upon a time we were lost

~

Pretend away the darkness

Help me make-believe there’s a purpose

I can still imagine it’s worth it

but

If the only way to remember

the laughter

is not just pretending

if maybe it’s ending

by making my ending

I can look back while I’m laughing

saying

I made it

with one last chance

and one last glance

I remembered

how to get back

my
