Hidden Fantasy

Stepped on the train

Alone in my world again

Tick off the stops as they pass

Counting down the minutes

Until at last...

Emerging on the platform

Connecting to the street

Look across the corner

And see a swell of people

Trapped in the noise

The air chokes my lungs

Trying to catch my breath

In the busy hum of Downtown

So pick a direction and walk

Head up, confident, serene

Striding with purpose

To destinations unseen

At last I've found it

The place I was searching for

Hidden in a dark alleyway

Resembling a shadowed corridoor

Pound on the door

It opens; I'm inside

Finally found my place

Mallabar's- where Fantasy hides...
