Peter Pan

by Keith D Allison


Our flight

has lasted


a lifetime


I would have never believed

that you would have turned on me

to lay me low

to bring the pain


Things now cannot be the same

you have taught me fear

so from now on

it's Jiff or Skippy

how I hope, they will not do the same

LOL! Not what I expected for an ending. Along the cruchy uneven road to peanut butter never never land.

Hi Keith...I like the turn this takes in the penultimate line! Otherwise, I was set to hear about forever-children having to grow up. Nice stroke of the pen, here! Thanks.

Ah, so a recall of Peter Pan!! I did not know. My sis-in-law calls Jiff - "Jiffy Lube," due to its hydrogenated oils, or somesuch. I got nothin' on Skippy - unless it left town. ;) I enjoyed your poem - first stanza is great.
