Poem 33


I played with you

tempted you

not up the garden path

but into the vastness of your intellect

willingly you played the game

added, not detracted

we created

we evolved

words that made sense

engaged us

for that is the nature of creativity

to challenge

to see what lies around the corner

the corners in your mind

marvellous worlds take shape

to thrill us with magic

that unfolds


to venture down the garden path

awaits a world of destruction.

to take your soul

to take your being

casting you into an abyss of uselessness.

be careful

do not venture too far,

there is a point of no return

with possibilities to hideous to contemplate.


we shall rejoice

in the world that is ours

loves who await us

journeys yet to be made

dinners to consume

a world to explore

for that is our future

that and much more

not the aimless banter of strangers

safe in their respective cocoons

tucked away in isolated havens

at opposite ends of the earth.


This poem is a collaboration with Jenny from ramblingsfromamum

  1. I smile 🙂 and again 🙂 but please the essence of this was from you, not I, I just jiggled a little here & there. You ‘did good’ my friend 😀

    I was wondering why it read differently than your normal work, and when I got to the bottom and read “collaboration”, it all made sense. It is still you and yet there was something else that gave it a different flair, and that must be from ramblingsfromamum. This is an excellent collaboration. Thoroughly enjoyed. 🙂

    Lovely! You two did a great job!

  5. Wow, that is very deep and kind of wonderful and sinister and alluring and scary all at once! Wonderful collaboration!! 🙂 🙂

    • Thank you Helen, it was fun this time as we got the words to work and we agreed with each others suggestions, doesn’t always work that way but Jenny and I have tried a few and been successful.
