Escaping Dreams

by cricketjeff on January 3, 2010.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

She kept such beauty captive in her mind
And only told the stories to herself
But picture books belong out on the shelf
A treasure trove that only dreamers find
      The images her frozen soul designed
      Were hers alone through all those hurt filled years
      A consolation glimpsed through wasted tears
      A treasure trove that only dreamers find
In time she found not everyone’s unkind
She only needed love to help her grow
He looked at her and she began to glow
A treasure trove that only dreamers find
    He freed the beauty captive in her mind
    A treasure trove that only dreamers find
