neverland

in neverland the sun never sets
the moon sits on a cloud in the sky
there is no beginning or end just
a rush of endless energy as you flow
over the moors and fields nothing can
stop you not even the ice encrusted
pool that you skillfully pirouette
across. everything is easy and endless
in neverland a land where it is you
and nature for eternity, a land where
you never go hungry, never need to
stop, a land that is out there sometimes

I made checkmate and the tyrant died
I bought every property and won the lottery
I sank the battleship and saved the country
I solved the deck and the climate was fixed
if only all problems could be solved so easily


i’m not sure what is happening
grass runs like a herd of wildebeest
trees play tig and hopscotch
hills jump over fences
skies play a concert of colours
rivers rise up and never come down
performing serene acrobatic moves
i’m not sure what is happening
in the forest today
everything seems wrong
yet it is so right


in the forest of sure things
nothing it what it seems. the
only sure thing is that you
will never leave dead or alive

tomorrow land

a land we dream of
in sweaty anticipation
of what we will and
will not do planning
our escape from the
monotony of our reality
never realising that
tomorrow land is a
place we will never
get to visit or see
tomorrow land is just
beyond the end of
our fingertips almost
within reach but as
far away as the land
of Xanadu


don’t give too much away
you don’t know how people
will fill in the gaps to turn
your story into a fairytale

empty

between now and then
is nothing, an empty
space of subconsciousness
that everyone is unaware of
except when they dream


between you and me
is the backbone of
the wild lands, bleak
moors covered in rough
grass and thigh deep
mud keeping us apart
in body but not in mind

between

between now and then
is the here and now
constantly moving
never stopping
forever shifting
infinitely changing


you seem so near
yet so far
I stand in-between
lost
