I Need my Emerald City
Your name is written in all the stars
Across the universe's skies.
And your face is forever there
Every time I close my eyes.
So where's my yellow brick road,
A golden ribbon leading me home?
For this world is stranger than Oz,
This fantasy land I'm forced to roam.
I can't think of anyone but you -
My brain is corrupted, a mess.
And that wooden box is looming;
I can't bring myself to confess.
The beats of my heart are unfamiliar,
Like the eurhythmic beat of a drum.
I can summon the right words,
It's the emotions that won't come.
You've got my pulse racing double time –
The deafening roar of blood in my ears.
I cower away from you - afraid
That you'll realise the extent of these tears.
It feels like straw flows through my veins,
My face is as expressionless as tin.
My lion-like ferocity is long, long gone,
My patience is wearing thin.
Lost, I need my emerald city,
There must be a wizard I can find,
Because you've sapped me of my courage,
Stolen my heart and taken my mind.
I had an idea of how this would come out, not sure if it's completely worked, but I hope you enjoyed reading. Please review!
