Galaxy

You told me that I was above myself

With friends who had dreams

Of things you didn’t understand

And nor should I

Things were shrunken into the uniform

Sludge brown of your world

Every time a green shoot showed

You’d STAMP on it until crushed

Broken you’d say

So intent were you on the world around you

That you didn’t manage

To break my imagination and

I hid it down so deep until I left

When I unleashed and unlocked

The galaxy I’d kept hidden from you.

I have written since I can remember, devouring the stories of Roald Dahl under the covers by torchlight. I have always loved fairy tales, myths and magic. A good deal of the things I write has some truth in it. Others, not. I’m pleased you dropped by, please feel free to leave me a comment or if you’re kind enough to share that’s fine. ☺️
