Mind Games and Coloring books
Soar with me to heights unbounded,
Where dreams go on and on;
Defying concrete fences
Built by customs’
We can fly high and re-arrange stars
Put them to places we want them
Or take them home if we should,
Linger for awhile if we would
We are the law
In the mind games
I would play with you.
We’ll assign the stars colors
Give the comets names
Like we did in coloring books as kids
And for a moment we were the gods
Controlling the the courses of the universe
As we please.
I’d like to wake you up
Where the lashes of the forests
Where litters are beautiful,
Orderly not good,
And neatness is not known
Under my decorated skies.
I’d swim with you in the ocean
Where nobody drowns
And the raindrops swim with us,
Crown our heads
Bejeweled with brilliant wreaths
As we emerge in the surface
Let me invite you in a repast
From the bounty of my harvest
Where beverages flow no end.
We don’t have to worry
For the banquet replenishes,
And we don’t have to gain weight
For the body regulates itself.
Stroll with me in a leisurely walk
Where time freezes to four o’clock
When the sun is friendly,
The wind acquiesce as the crowd consenting,
And the perfumed path we chose
Under the canopy of greens and blooms
Ends in the sea where the sunset
Prepared us a breath-taking show
In the altar of the gods.
Let us hold hands
In the silence of the songs
That our hearts sing in unison,
Promising vows of forever
Witnessed by the dances of the dolphins
Recorded by the ears of the ocean
Encapsulated by the infinite seashells
Strewn in the bed of sands
Of the seashore where our feet
Are planted in the grounds
Of a home we found in each other.
If I could have things my way
I would play mind games
And spend coloring books with you,
But if not,
Would you still love me?
