The Land of the Forbidden

Do you dare to read the words

bled out onto white pages

with nothing to doubt

no restriction of concept or paradigm 

no restriction of what reality really is

What is real and what is not

is at the poet’s discretion…

what is true and what is not

what is reality and what is plot

who exists and who is imagined

We write to entertain your mind

to stimulate your imagination

and tantalize your senses

words that make you feel such sorrow

words that make you smile or laugh

words so powerful you sit and say nothing

for nothing is the right thing to say

don’t look for forgiveness

don’t look for remorse

it is the world of true feeling 

it is the world of your pain

the less you admit it

the less you will gain

because something inside you

rings true with each verse

there is something that touches you

in the places you keep secret

we will ignite a spark of humanity in you

Each word from a poet 

is a gift to the few

the ones that just listen 

with their minds open like a window

where things that you know can fly out

and the things you disbelieve can fly in

It is the land of the forbidden 

all wrapped up with bows

To stop your heart and restart it

leaving you to wonder

what you really know
