Lovely Twisted Things

What A Dream

I lie awake in bed at night -

and dream of what could be.

Of lovers past and memories,

and lovely twisted things.


Christmas bells and snowflakes,

packages displayed for all to see.

Gifts of love to show affection,

wrapped as lovely twisted things.


While carousels spin, music echoes,

a haunting tune plays on repeat.

A memory past, stirring feelings,

wishing for lovely twisted things.


Why do we wait to say what we feel,

a human fault - it seems.

Wasting time in daydreams,

about lovely twisted things.


One day I hope to find it,

escape these vivid dreams.

Living life wide open,

chasing those lovely twisted things.


The finish line will be a vision,

of colorful ribbons tied with string.

And I, will be the victor,

adorned with, lovely twisted things.
