THE CLOWN OF YOUR NIGHTMARE

carnival

cuprikorn:i want that lemon by laurenmarek on Flickr.

 

A day of fun for all.

Follow the bouncing ball

past the booths of games

to the house of mirrors.

Inside, you’ll find me,

a clown of your nightmares,

ready to take you on a tour

that will lead to endless horrors.

This isn’t a carnival

but a voyage into your nightmares.

Buckle your seat belts

and enjoy the ride.

THE CARNIVAL

 

 

The carnival calls to me.

Sounds of laughter

float to me in the distance.

I want to be there.

I want to be a child again

for one afternoon.

Go back in time when

life was enjoyed to its fullest.

I will dip my toes in the sand

and run to the carnival.

I will buy cotton candy and

eat it with sticky fingers.

I will ride the ferris wheel

until I am dizzy from the height.

Children are running to the rides.

I am one of them.

For this afternoon,

I am one of them.
