I Used to Believe 

The stars 

Are thick with night

Chilled and melancholy 

Spinning nowhere

In the still of silence
I used to believe 

In their magic

I used to dream

Transparent wings would

Carry my wishes
I used to listen to their song

I used to imagine their

Song was just for me

I would lie in the grass

Gazing into the sky
I could go everywere, anywhere

It was magic for me always

Once upon a time

Those things and the times

No longer return
Time has passed

Still today, I lie in the grass

Gazing into the sky

Still today, transparent wings

Carry my wishes

Still today, I used to believe

Reality and I have quarrelled. This is where I go so he can't find me, my Other Place. Here I can spin my Fancies and Fiction, as I wander among the Stars and listen as they whisper their secret to the moon. My name is Annie, I am lovely and lonely and I belong deeply to myself. I love cats, listening to the blues, the mountains more than the beach, being lazy, writing my fancies and fiction and I also love to crochet. That's me and this is my Other Place.
