Favorite Quote:
"Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world." -Ralph Waldo Emerson


There was laughter.
Happy people danced.
Perhaps too happy.

The old lady stroked the keys of the ol piano.
A beautiful melody followed.

Dancing and dancing.
Did these people ever stop?
Did I even want them to?

Feeling so calm, relaxed.
I swayed to the laughter, the melody.
My beautiful dress flowing.
My feet moving.

Hair pinned perfectly,
Where was this place?
Am I dreaming? But it feels so real.

The music comes to an end.
Along with the dancing.
Smiles disappear.
Tired faces remain.

But not for long.
Everything fades.
For I find it was just a dream.

I rub my tired eyes,
Thoughts race through my head.
As the once amazing dreams slowly drifts away.

I want to live in my dreams,
And dream about reality.
Maybe then life would be more pleasing.
