Original script "A Place They Cannot Follow"
Revised prose June 28 2008
Paper feelings guide the trip of poetic adventure
Paths carved out by many who have accepted this journey
Some paths walked upon over and over again
While others are new and barely visible
Subconscious thoughts grow to become reality's challenge
Just over the threshold of engaging emotions together
Make believe world created as an escape to ecstasy
They must allow themselves the pleasure
Playing along just to find out where the road will lead
Filling a void for one, two, or thousands
They arrive at a place where their own words become hidden behind a masterpiece
Can this really happen?
Certainly not……the cost may be too high
Lives scripted as a story unfolds
Baffling emotions leave tears upon paper
They write about love and the moon and stars
Dreams, desire, and most endearing…. memories
Who is really surveying true intent or this unmet desire?
A dangerous and yet marvelous poetic outlet in life
Being led away from what's real to embrace a poet's world
All avenues are amazingly beautiful
Walking into ... then walking out of ...
Intentionally stepping back to reflect upon trueness
With the potential to find fear of falling too deep
This world can be just as real as they'd like it to be
Even silence will say more than words alone
A poets world is full of dreams
And we'll always rise to the occasion
After all, we are dreamers
