"Imagination" by Eric Wayne Flynn

"Imagination"

My childhood friend

My lifetime lover

The best company I've ever known

A thousand failures we've created

Without you I wouldn't be me

The person I've always tried to escape

Im finally settling in to this skin

Tonight we will stay up late

Just you and me

      I can relate Eric, I have the same best friend. I miss him when he's gone and welcome him back with open arms and mind when he returns. Good poem, voted up.

      Hi Eric,

      The most thought provoking I 've read on imagination.

      Your imagery :

      "...My childhood friend

      My lifetime lover

      The best company I've ever known..."

      Your free flowing words continue and finally like a motile marine animal you freely swim into it's existence. (i,e, skin).

      Ekphrasis!: I like this poem.. with the art: the swirly aquatic bold lines above his head.

      Thanks Pochinuk, I really enjoy your reviews and visits. I also love the art, I take a long time to pick out a picture for each poem that fits, sometimes I really score a good one, this was one of those times.

      Eric,

      Thank you to telling me what you did: picked out the art for the poem.

      I like to know those things from others; I do not think there is any set of rules, and openess in 'whatever" may happen is good- I got some "weird' things happening in my brain as far as poetry, art, and overall thoughts- to the good! Keep going Eric! Your an inspiration to others like myself.

      An invitation:

      You may want to visit my page called "Orangebound." When I was creating the series of events concluding this piece, believe me, I had a lot on the table from the start. When it got down to it- for me, I had to create my own collage and photography and art pieces: the one collage is on top, and it's other is last. In between are the others. It was enjoyable the whole way; sometimes I have nothing on the table and wa la as if magic, it's there!

      Take a look if you have time. Some of my others are inspired as told in my Backgrounds, respectively for each hub. I am new to Hubpages and right now I am just plunkin what I think fits and seeing what others are thinking- it's fun!

      Keep following your own unique style and voice, and judgements- your verse truly is praiseworthy and in the short time I have been here I have been appreciative of your efforts in writing.

      Glad to visit,

      pochinuk
