Where The Wild Things Go

I want to forget
What I am compelled to remember
The lies born from imaginations
That are not mine

I want to take my faded hopes
My jaded heart
And leave them wrapped in a bundle
At the foot of my bed

I want to lie clothed
But be bare
Under a sea of stars
That whisper my name

I want to taste the breeze
And outrun the wind
Until I am certain
That freedom is mine

I want to seek all the colours
That are not found on the rainbow
And ask if they too
Feel bright and loved

I want to roam to the place
Where the wild things go
Into the forest of dreams
Under the blanket of clouds

I want to free fall into the abyss
To see if the depths claim me
Or if I can rise up
Changed and reborn

I want to know the coldest day of winter
So that I better understand
Why the summer sun
Steals the dew from the dawn

I want to wrap myself in the tears
Of a thousand raging storms
Without moving to shelter
From their crying heart

I want to hold hands
With old souls that inspire me
With young ghosts that have left me
With strangers I know

I want to wake with lions
And talk in a language
That is not studied or skilled
But primal and true

I want to stand tall
With my arms open wide
At the centre of the earth
And see if heaven feels closer

I want to fly untethered
Above rivers and streams
Water glimmering beneath me
As I dive and soar

I want to untangle the web
That is woven around me
So I can run to the place
Where the wild things go
