The Unsigned Writer


Poetry By, J. M. Lilin

Oh, Peter Pan, I need a friend.

I am lonely down in this unusual land.

Come down here yourself or let my dreams transcend.  

Oh, Peter Pan, bring me a different life.

Too many crowds with a million words in between.

Saying them every place but never knowing what they mean.

I want to find myself on a different surface with stars so bright.

Oh, Peter Pan, arms folded, waiting far above.

I am far too old to spend my time wondering.

Far too old to have all friendships that I am imagining.

I am too old to be daydreaming at my window for your love.

Oh, Peter Pan, I have waited long enough in this land.

Come down here and behold.

Your eyes of gold.

Take me to your home – oh how wonderful – neverland.

    This was so good J. We all dream of somethings that we want to have. Dreams are dearer to us sometimes than even the reality. Excellent. 😇
