Behind Closed Eyes

by, Cassandra

A fairy tale, no doubt, hidden words in rhymes.
Telling some elaborate tale of magic, love, and fear.
Twisting into something, something bittersweet.
Planting the seeds of happily ever after into children's brains.
Telling lies, weaving tales of places far away.
Giving hope to dying souls, in hopes they'll soon be there.
Little do they know of these places they long to go.
Just of some magic spell weaved to make them see,
See something that wasn't there.
It's all just a breathtaking mirage meant to free the mind
From the hassles of everyday life.
And it's all just a bedtime story meant to soothe the heart
From the fears that lies behind closed eyes.
