A Poem by Alicia Hirshey

Imaginary outline
Written in pink
Pretty little sparkles
Alter the way we think
Missing emotions
hidden away within the ink
With the wave of the wand
Little girl nothing
Became something more
Marry make believe
Sky diving on the floor
Surfing the tide
Hidden along the lost shores
Crimson stain
Marked and plain
Barely showing
The faint scars remain
Little nonsense
In her eyes you will see
She has stashed it away
Under lock and key
Razors calling
Nothing to gain
If only it were easy
To keep the calls away.
Make this wish
Your somebody
Even if your words they twist
Safe haven to protect you
Hide you in the night
Imagination brought
This place to life
Making life easier
No longer the constant fight
You've come a long way
Sense we first set sail
watching it pass
To spaces unknown
Little stories
Line the memories
At least
They won't go away
When I'm asleep
Bedtime stories
I listen to them all
From fairies to gnomes
Finally I realize
They were all better left untold.
