Author, so true, and sad in a way that children do wrongly believe they can fly and are invincible like Superman. But that superhero is an archetypal character worth exploring the meaning behind.

Good luck to you in the booth.

This work has reached the exceptional level
This is both scary in the realist way, but at the same time very touching. Faith and hope should always have a sense of pure innocence to them. That's kind of an offshoot I got from this. Lovely. NG

This is a scary write when you realise there is no escape and you can't fly, dreams are best kept under the blankets where reality can't get at them, anxious minutes indeed, love Dolly x

Hi Contest Contender,

I read this as horror.

A poignant poem, combining a child's way of thinking in a difficult, or should we say, very difficult situation.

Reminds me of the Challenger crash of January 28, 1986 when all I could say was:

Lord have mercy;
Christ have mercy;
Lord have mercy.


Your poem is also reminiscent of Anne Frank's journal, which contains some romantic and arousing narrative that was initially suppressed. It was teenage love, if I recall.

In remembering those I have known who have passed, who are now dead,
I think more about the times they made me laugh. Many jokes are funny, but many honest situations are funny too. Or a situation could be made funny by a slight alteration of the timing or positioning of a character, by the power of the imagination.

I liked most your "Superman" finish.

Children very often sum up their feelings in just one word.
But that word is expressed with their full energy. A joy.

As adults we are more circumspect; more boring perhaps.

Bright colours I love.

Well done with this poem. It has an unpretentious
exuberance, as well as a horror.

Thanks,

Richard.
