Fantasy

-Sean Anthony Lopez

And so it goes
Another day without you here
But that is okay, dear
I'll fantasize

I suppose
You're always mine inside my dreams
Where no one hears your screams
Or beg and plead
For a life worth living now

And we'll sing and shout
We can dance together
And there's no way out
You'll be with me forever
And no adults around
So the fun will never have to end
I'll keep you safe and sound
And in time our souls will begin to blend

Will you notice me
Hiding just around the bend
At least I can pretend
To be permanent
To be the kind of thing you might think would be really important

But anyways, nevermind
There's an image in my head
Of the two of us in bed
Duct tape on your mouth, rope below your head

And we'll sing and shout
We can dance together
And there's no way out
You'll be with me forever
And no adults around
So the fun will never have to end
I'll keep you safe and sound
And in time our souls will begin to blend

Just get comfortable with fear
There is no escaping, dear
Accept the sadness in store for you
And you'll find that together we'll make it through

But then again
With your underwear exposed
And bruises on your skin
I feel it coming back again
As you slowly bring that tooth
Down upon your lip
I know what I want
And you know what you're doing
And no one will find us out

And we'll sing and shout
We can dance together
And there's no way out
You'll be with me forever
And no adults around
So the fun will never have to end
I'll keep you safe and sound
And in time our souls will begin to blend

Our souls begin to blend
Our souls begin to blend
Our souls begin to blend
Our souls begin to blend
