Eyes meeting across from each other
One simple glance affixed with a thousand meanings
Nurturing an idea rooted on hopes and dreams
Insidious since its inception
Nothing feeds it externally
Yet it grows
Thanks for letting me know you liked the poem about an imaginary friend. It is difficult to reveal personal secrets (if that is one, and not just another story!) but when we do, we find that others have much the same sorts of private experiences!
I'm glad you got to read "A Lost Paradise". Sorry if I confused you. I did use an indirect metaphor for two things. I compared the tale of explorers concquering unexplored lands to turn them into cosmopolitan cities with a man attempting to change a woman into something she is not. The last stanza was more of a realization that due to him changing her, she is no longer what he fell in love with.
I hope that answers some of your question and if it's still not clear, I'm going to change the structure, hoping that it's a bit clearer.
Thanks for your input. I always appreciate your thoughts.
