Playing Pretend

Standard

Playing pretend,
Fun, helpful, therapeutic,
Time of utmost joy.

Playing pretend,
No longer enjoyable.
Embarrassing, distracting, confusing.
Makes me feel like the wrong person.

I want to play
Pretend.
I do,
I don’t.
Denial.

All A Beautiful Dream

Standard

What happened to the flair?
What happened to the excitement?
What happened to all the children?
In this once busy and hopping place?

Laughing with angels,
Cherubs in arms,
Running and playing,
All a beautiful dream.
