Togetherland.

Imagine a world where wild things reside, a world of untamed calamity.

One where we made the rules, painted neon skies, and created unreal creatures.

We’d let the chaos run wild. We’d allow the commotion. We’d just let it be.

You and I, we would create this world.

Together, the possibilities would be unlimited- the impossibilities gone.

Like in Wonderland, “nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn’t.”

Because as long as it’s a world that we create, the contradictions aren’t so important, see?

If you and I created disorder, it would be magnificent.

Our pandemonium would be glorious and our chaos would be brilliant.

If our world were real, it would be an admirable mess.

Chaos and beauty could run through our veins, our hearts pumping with adventure.

Out of our souls would pour imagination and into our lungs we’d breathe creativity.

Ideas would bleed on to the floor, and into the sky our plans would scatter.

You and I could wrap our insanity up, while trapping our tangled dreams in.

In our pastel package, we could preserve the world we created.

You and I could create this world and keep it for our own.

Wow Camille! I agree with what Kipperoo said on this, I get that mild flavor of a love peom, with just a hint of a dark twisted side to it too! Good work for sure!! :-D

A runaway love poem that almost has sort of a trippy dark feeling to it (in a good way). A good one by the dreamer/poet Camille!

The imagery was marvelous.  I absolutely envy your ability to string words into thoughts like:  bleeding onto the floor.  Stupendous!
