"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it…"

- Roald Dahl

I have things-


That I must tell you.


They run numbly through my head,

And they make my heart hurt

So tenderly.

They remind me of a different day.


Tonight... I will turn out

Those burning lights.

I'll look out the rain-splattered window

And jump out-



The world outside of this one,

That's where I'll go.

The place full of something I've lost.


I have feelings

That I think you could understand,

But how do I say them?

How do I convey them?


Tonight... I will run,

And I will hurt when I laugh.

And maybe tonight

I will feel alright.


I wanted this to rhyme

And I wanted my life to fit right

Into the rhythm of this world.

You understand this.


Maybe tonight I will tell you

That I feel so many things.

And I will take these feelings,

And I will find a way to stretch and whirl

Them into spoken truth.


Maybe tonight,

I'll find a way.

I'll run away, always away-

Towards my own awaiting arms

Somewhere far off in the night.

But before I go, I will ask you,

So softly:

"Will you come with me?"


And you, friend, will say:

"I will."
