A Bedtime Story


Tell me a story.

One of love,

not one of loss.

Show me a hero’s journey.

One that leads

out of the darkness.

You see,

I have been waiting

for the loss to end,

and the light to come.

If I could hear your voice,

I might find

which way is up.

Tell me a story.

One that teaches

that good shall overcome.

For I have only known evil,

and the wickedness of men.

Tell me of endings

that have lovers together,

and lands at peace.

This world seems

to have lost its dreams

of these.

Tell me a story,

as I drift off to sleep.
