Treasure Island

Broken heart emo


Dreamers


They were dancing in the room where the chandeliers burned as bright as the sun,
The music playing loud
But the laughter all around held the real melody.
Every step took a pain away from their hearts,
Every kiss washed away their innocent sins.

Then the hall vanished,
Another room appeared,
The room they had when they were little.
Same as they remembered it
It even looked as big.
Then they looked down, they were kids again.
The girls with sparkling gold wings were having tea on the fluffy clouds on a sunny day with their dolls,
And the boys were saving the world with the help of their action figures, a cape around their shoulders. 
They were truly happy. 

Now, they were back to the place where they most dreaded.
Where they lost, lost everything they ever wanted.
Some heard the razor sharp words screaming and screeching in their ears,
Nothing could block it out,
Others saw themselves fall hard on the concrete floor with no one to catch them. 
They saw themselves lose everything they cared about.
But then,
One deep breath and the knife with the salted tip that had driven through their back stopped hurting,
One blink and the nightmare was gone.

The sun rose again
And it was time,
Time for the dreamers to wake up.
But another night is just waiting ahead
To set the wild circus of their imagination free once again.

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
