A Breathe Of Untainted Air

She takes my hand
We giggle, we skip
Red mary-janes clicking
On sunlit cobblestone

She is my Guide
Through a world of wonder
To sights unseen
Memories to be unlocked

Oh Wonderland
Land of whimsy
Fanciful freedom
And childlike abandon

Faster, faster
We’re running now
Click-clack, click-clack
The forest spirals behind us

In the field of gold
We tumble to a stop
Rolling in grass
Like spun silk

My eyes lock on hers
Cornflour stars
In the depths of her universe
I see myself

Standing amid concrete towers
Craving the Earth
Suffocated with technology
Longing for simplicity

Breathe heavy
With polluted air
Heart heavy
With society’s expectations

But in the moment before waking
There she is
My Guide
Beckoning me to freedom

She shimmers and fades
And I smile
For I know she will return
When I next fall into Wonderland

A Breathe Of Untainted Air
