Beam Us Up

Beam Us Up

written by: Lynn White

 

Take my hand
hold it tight
we’ll stay
close
in the beam
of light
descending

and then you’ll beam us up
we’ll close our eyes
and make a wish
as we rise

and if we get what we wish for
we’ll feast
on the scarlet sins and secrets
we find
in the red light zone
and stay
as long as we wish

if we get what we wish for
we’ll be in the pink
of our vie en rose
on our slow way down

to the present
carefully
avoiding the dark hole
of the future
that we didn’t wish for.
