I just found something called Poetry Potluck. Their writing prompt for this week is 'Love and Romance.' It actually made me think of a poem I already wrote...for Sunday Scribblings, so here is that one and another. :o)
It strikes like a bolt of lightening
Out of the blue;
And we are left,
Wondering where to hide the bodies.
Let’s pretend then, you and I
That we have wings and we can fly
Fast and far and wide and high
Up to the sun; all through the sky.
Let’s pretend then, you and me
That we can live beneath the sea
We’ll swim and float and wander free
And meet with octopi for tea.
Let’s pretend then, me and you
That we can love when the moon is new
Under the stars, in the cool, wet dew
And never doubt, or be untrue.
You won’t hurt me, I won’t hurt you.
Yes, let’s pretend….
