Let me take you far away
from the world of everyday
where you can't be the real you
that young person you once knew
before the years wore you away.

I can take to both forest and fen
away from all the urban din
where any reflection which you see
is the one you're meant to be
not someone with feet of clay.

Or close your eyes to really perceive
that the "real" world is make believe
built of naught but false images
that blind our eyes like errant midges
all so easily flicked away.

Perhaps on some cold clear night
with slivered moon there in plain sight
we might travel to distant stars
using worm holes like fast cars
to see how other life might play.

The future as well as the past
all seen as if already cast;
from big bang until the end of time
connected as if a long rhyme
or the pages of a play.

So come if you have the urge.
I've words and time enough to splurge.
We'll see all there is to see
and become what we're meant to be
and more than, if you choose to stay.

A most delightful invite, your words seem to into a world of possibility, I like who I am today but who knows if one day I would want to maybe go back in time. Lovely penned poem that gives the reader much to think about.

Your title is really perfect

Thank you...Teddy

Pleased that you dropped by. Hope all is well with you

Hello Stan
I 've been away for a while. I know I missed a lot from all my friends here.
As usual, an enjoyable read here. I see you've deviated from your rhymes in stanza 2 L. 2, maybe that intentional?

Good to have you drop back in for a while. And No that rhyme miss is not intentional. Thanks for pointing it out and giving me a reason to correct it

Rula says about the line 2 in stanza 2 and realize tha it is just a matter of moving the word [where]. not a biggie. Other than that, I see nothing that I would change and have to give kudos for an exceptional write! You constantly surprise me.

Announcing the new chatroom! I will be hosting a chatroom on Saturday nights

What surprises me is that people are still reading my scribbles lol. Thanks for the idea and for the visit. PS just referred back to the original inked poem and see that this was the result of a typo. So your idea is what I actually did the first time
