My Sweet, Lonely, Little, World

Come, step
into my sweet, lonely little world!
Hand in hand,
We shall run across the cliffs
against which my emotions crash,
Fly through the capricious clouds
Through which my wild fancies fly,
Swim in the deep waters of the sea
in which lie buried the secrets of my heart,
Sing and dance
to the music of the swaying plants and the whistling winds,
and when weary and hungry,
eat the Forbidden Fruit.........
But perhaps you would wish to run away,
Perhaps you have your own sweet, lonely little world......
But first,
Come, step
into my sweet, lonely little world!

    A lonely world is sometimes very peaceful but how long? A day comes it does not remain lonely. A nice poem. (Report) Reply

    You have portrayed your 'sweet, lonely little world' so beautifully, and thanks for taking us around. It's a sweet poem that I liked to read.

    This poem reads so well and honest that I feel like reading it again and again. The theme is a common reference to most of us but the imagery and style are very special and pronounced. ....10.... (Report) Reply

    There are many worlds. You paint your landscape with a poignant
    brush.10, for your sensitivity.
