a book
dusty with the passing
of time
and pages covered in black splotchy ink
that has the power
to unlock
restrained by the rules
of society
set free to wander
by those of us
who still posses the innocence
to believe
a dream
soaring high with wings
lighter than air
and thoughts floating
in the darkest shadows
and furthest reaches of the mind
a thought
akin to life
and dismissed just as quickly
