Wendy and Peter
By Ana Victoria
She sat up high in her room,
‘Twas just her and the warming sun
And tiny flowers of cherry bloom
And she loved each and every one…
She’s been up there for so long,
I bet she forgot how to feel
Heartbroken but she carried on,
Never questioning is it real.
The nearby train shook the windows
As I screamed over the fence,
‘Darling you’ll be alright,
Let’s leave this town in past tense.
Let’s leave this town for a while,
See everything you want to.
It will be just you and I,
You’ll be loved like you never knew.’
She asked where we would go?
‘Here police sirens never sleep,
I want to go where time runs slow,
But I got so used to this street…’
‘Please, let’s run away together,
Get the hell out of this town.
Everything’s less complicated
When you are the only one around.
‘Please follow me and let’s fly…’
And the sun slowly went down
She took a breath and closed her eyes
She descended lightly on the ground…
