Longing for Crayons

The magic is fading
My childhood eroding
The Tooth Fairy was first
Now Santa has gone
Sun setting on the wonder
Darkness brings fear
Too many unknown entities
None warm or fuzzy
Overwhelmed with reality
I long for the crayons,
Bubbles and candyfloss –
Simple and fun
I crawl into a book of fantasy
And just for a moment
I’m that little being
Believing in the faeries,
Living in Wonderland.
