Obsession/Blinded by a dream

by Mandy Earl   Dec 19, 2018


Once upon a time
a little girl did dream
of smiles, of love, of joyous life
of fields of sun kissed green

Upon that time so long ago
This little girl did pray
Of catching sparks of reverie
To illuminate the grey

Here and there, she sought this light
Farther down this path she'd go
drawn deeper to the darkest night
Where the smallest light will glow

But buried far beneath the gloom
Was not her dazzling dream
But lurking demons, agony
A nightmare full of screams

A lesson learned
A tragic curse, these bright lit fantasies
A radiant utopia
Became my insanity
