Let us pretend

Like children

Leave the world behind

In the distance.


Far away

Into a fantasy land

Where we can dream



Lost in each other

Lost in the act

Lost to reality

Lost to the world


Close the door

Shut out the commotion

Just pretend

And hold me close.


Whatever we lack

We can find it there

Within each other

Hidden inside.


Written for Theme Thursday

    I like your poem. The idea you present is so true for many. Maybe that is why we write… we too are longing to leave the world behind and enter into a fantasy land. And the words on paper (or screen) give us the ability to do so. Keep writing, my friend!

    I want to pretend too and really want to enter your world. It sounds wonderful and safe. Close the door and then search together to find what is inside. Oh if only sometimes life could be like that and we could share such a special place with the someone who holds the key to our hearts. I think that the world would be such a happy place and the happiness would spread like the seeds of a love plant throughout all the lands. Life would be different then with no wars, no hurts, no ills, and just be full of joy and love. But alas, the pretend world then becomes reality, and life must go on as we know it.

    Can we just pretend for a few minutes more?
