The World inside my Mind

The World inside my Mind

A Poem by Arik
"

Just a sonnet about imagination.

"

The world inside my mind is wonderful.

In it I’ve been the glorious, proud knight

Who slayed the dragon that was oh so cruel,

And saved the villagers from such a fright.

In my mind I’ve been the mad scientist

Who toils away in his dark and dank lab.

My potions begin to spew a green mist

As I examine what’s on my glass slab.

I am the hero standing all alone

As I watch Armageddon take the world.

If any still survive is to me unknown.

The world before me, emptiness unfurled,

A lonely journey in a world unkind.

This can happen if only in my mind.
