Wonderland – Promote Yourself

fairyland

She ran away to a place in her dreams
Suspended and twirling, gravity escaped
Expecting nothing, satisfaction unsought
Weightless, swimming through space and no thought
Deep blue seas and empty black skies
Far-flung horizons painted by light;

She ran away from real life’s grey mist
Floating alone not needing to trust
To a place bursting with colour so bright
Not wishing or yearning- entranced by the sight
Grand willow trees that moved with the wind
Somehow they sashayed despite their form;

She didn’t have questions she wasn’t confused
Savouring sensations and feeling so free
Timeless space’s arms held her close
Overcame her sweetly– warm and so safe
Stars in her eyes and dew on her skin
This is the place she dreamed she was in;

So she ran and ran far to a place in her dreams
Suspended and twirling, gravity escaped
Expecting nothing, satisfaction unsought
Weightless, swimming through space and no thought
And when she awoke her heart sadly fell
She was far from the place she yearned to be in —
