  • If I speak in the tongues of men and angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a tinkling symbol. And if I have prophecy and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And if I dole out all my goods, and if I deliver my body that I may boast but have not love, nothing I am profited. Love is long suffering, love is kind, it is not jealous, love does not boast, it is not inflated. It is not discourt

Little Boy Forever

Cotton candy clouds, a candle light sun across the crayon canyon, firefly stars, cardboard cars with record wheels spinning music from the sky’s paper airplanes bass. Just drifting by so sweet like strawberry jam flowing from a chocolate mountain. Such a beautiful disaster losing touch with reality, a lost sense of gravity. Porcelain plates in mid-air, a train of thought I tend to taste. Toy trains I ride along to a far away place with no tracks. The magic boy pushes me along saying Vroom Vroom! I call him God in this room of murals, hanging mobiles, and cartoon mirrors. Take me outside to emerald fields, peeling my eyelids open to something real like a painting on a movie reel. Look around, boxed buildings, chalked rivers, ruby red rocks that talk from black holes and say this way, no this way. Rocking back and forth in my boat made of clay, I change shape with a touch. I’m the captain here, what I say is, no matter what they say. Little boy forever, that will be the day, until then I’ll wait for the night signs, directions to dreamland. My reality, my way of escape, my goodbye.

You can write on meth and now from a child's view. You are an excellent writer. Sally

Richie, I like that you are trying to do something different with your work. Your poems are definitely that. I haven't seen anything quite like them on this site. I like people who try to experiment. Push the limits. Seperate themselves from the pack. Your efforts here are to be commended.. I liked this one better than The Gold Digger and The Undertaker. To me it had more focus. It sort of reminded me of a Beatles song at first, from Sgt. Peppers (Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds). Then it sort of developed a Willy Wonka tone. I suppose that was the purpose...the little boy forever in us all. I certainly still have mine...Good job. I will read on... K

I came back to this because I had to read it again, you really captured the moment with your 'cotton candy clouds'. It's a work of art!

it's amazing how childhood is such this blur of sights and sounds and smells, just that strong security in all the little things we know. then reality rips it all away... very nice poem. good job with this.

Nice. Very John Lennon-like in a funny little way

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
