I’m making this up as I go along
You in the other place
Singing echoing off the walls
in an imaginary paradise.
Eden entwined between
sheets and dreams
making it up as we go along
Is this about a long distance relationship or maybe something near to that? I can sense a feeling of longing & sadness about the difference in location. As always, very well written, simple, direct, short & concise. It is always a pleasure to read your creations. Keep safe & stay awesome! 🙂
It’s about what the reader interprets it to be about… 😉
Interesting are there more than one person you repeat ‘you in the other place’ twice? Entwined between sheets, does this other person spend a lot of time in bed? Is it a romantic relationship? So many questions unanswered.
Unanswered questions are what open up the possibilities…
Making it up as we go along is what life’s all about isn’t it Shawn.?

I saw that line on another poem in the blog roll today, and had to steal it.
This is so the story of my life … and … still making it up day by day … Stunning!
I think we all do- our plans never come out just the way we imagine they will, do they?

I love Shawn’s poetry. This one speaks to me on a very personal level…my life is a series of making it up as I go … one day at a time.
I love this. My mind is spitting out so many ideas and I get it. Life is not a structure, it is a fabricated set of rules all made up as society changes thus we are all just winging it. I’m sure that wasn’t what you meant.
To be honest, I was playing with words and phrases in this one. The juxtaposition of words and phrases leaves enough gaps for many, many meanings to be discovered. Your interpretation definitely works.

I am so excited about the Awesome Poems and poets I have found since beginning this Blog a week ago. I feel like if I had only know sooner. Then I think ahh yes but you are here now. So enjoy with me. One of my favorites of the day.
Isn’t it amazing what happens when you open your eyes?
Once you start the steps in the journey, vistas open all around. 😉 Enjoy!
Truly amazing indeed!
