Treasure Island

Michael Wride

(December,5th 1968 / Wells, Somerset, England, UK)

Velvet Paradise


There we played
Behind the rose bushes
At the beginning of time
Living a dream
Living dreams

All day long flickering our eyes
To a world that wasn't there
To a world that didn't care
About adults and cruelty
An innocent place
Where we could live out our dreams
Live a dream

There we knew the trees would never be bare
We could crawl along roads
Unmetaled by the drawbacks of worry
And hide behind walls

In the velvet paradise
Within our minds

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Written sometime 1986-1990. This one I guess is about the innocence of childhood, perhaps lost innocence too and escapism to a safe, comfortable place...a velvet paradise.
