A Visit to the Cinema

This is supposed to be 87 words. I cheated a bit. But THE and END are both words and I seem to remember them featuring at the completion of those magical movies of my youth. So they sort of belong here.

This is for a prompt from Sammi (#230 …. so I’ve only missed 228 thus far) … to be found here


I shed my worries, take my  seat

A box of popcorn at my feet

Brief encounter. Brush with fame

Though I don’t know your real name

You take me places I’ve not seen

With magic on the silver screen

Smiling starlet, look my way

Remind me of a yesterday

When everything was wrapped in gold

And I believed all I was told

This brief escape. Just you and me

This refuge from reality

Open curtains. Dim the light

Be my dream for just one night
