The Great Escape From Reality Into An Alternate Dimension That Turned Out To Be Reality Disguised As A Dream


Lounging in total darkness
Side by side
Your hand on my knee
We're soaring on a sky held up by threads
Tied to the fingers of a cruel puppeteer
At any second the tables may turn
As my world comes

You are the light and the darkness
Both joy and sorrow
My strength and my weakness
Confusion as well as clarity
You are night and day all rolled into one
And I wouldn't have you any other way
Together we're the best of both worlds
With something intangible
Never found in any world
We are black and white
In vivid color
We have been rolled into one
I wouldn't want us any other way.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
