A Game I Play

Julie Rebecca-Lynn Walser 1977 (Lexington)

Let me tell you about a game I play, where I close my eyes and fade away, I float away to a special place beyond the stars, moon and space, and in this place you see there are only two people just you and me, and in this place all is right, nothing but love and we never fight. and in this place there is no sadness, no cells, no court and none of this madness. No rules to follow no laws to break, no bars to hold out seperate, no one too tell us we can't kiss or touch I don't just scream I love you I show you how much but eventuality my game must end and I must open my eyes too this reality again but someday soon I'm not sure when I'll close my eyes and play my game again.
