All is well...just dreaming...

I long to

start over

in a land far away,

where no one

knows me,

the places I’ve been,

and accepts what they see.

An unblemished world where

folks move to and fro,

and none are aware

of my pain.

No memories exist,

no feelings of grief,

no need to face nights

without you.

We’d wipe the slate clean,

with unneeded tears,

if I could grow wings

and fly to that place,

where life could

start over

Well said .. Some times I think many of us would like to go some where and start over. Its so very hard to do. We can't escape what tomorrow has to offer......m

IF? A very sweet thought, Michelle. I wonder why? I wonder so?
I enjoy your writing.

You have nailed the feeling most of us has sooner or later. I think only the truly brave, responsible and loving of us resist this urge to cut loose and call all those we have touched "collateral damage" in our search for solace. We know the pain and sense of rejection we would be guilty of causing in other's lives. Nice work.

If only it were that simple...I would be right there with you. I got a lot of positive vibes from "To Start Over".

That would be wonderful...

"Ah yes!" When one feels this it is the sure sign of a fine poem. You say so very much with just a few words - many poets do just the reverse.
It's the kind of poem one wants to keep as a reference for tomorrow.

I think we all have these fantasies Michelle! You are able to express them so beautifully!YOu speak for many of us I'm sure!
Superb poem!

I'm with you, Michelle. Perhaps that is the new Eden. Now. All we have to do is find it. It has been said that the key to such a place is right there inside of our soul. Hmmm. I have not found it yet. Thank you for sharing these precious sentiments. Love and peace to you,

Ahhh the elusive fantasy...I think we all wish that we could awaken fresh and start our life anew. No one having expectations of us and the simplicity of life, that we have always dreamed of, would color our days. To be able to be completely fresh with a new love, to experience those special feelings for the first time all over again...that would be so sweet. To not have to fight the tears of past hurts and to be open and free with innocence...Yep, I wanna go there...if you find that place, would you send me the directions? Lovely, moody poem, of your best I believe. I'm gonna save it!

Take care,

Very nice Michelle, and I think we all must feel this way at times.
