While We Search for Neverland

Sometimes when we really want something, when we really need this something and we search so very hard for this something that this something becomes so much more, or less than what it really is. So much so that when we finally find it we cannot recognize it because we have distorted it, humanized it beyond our comprehension. Such is the search for Neverland.

While We Search for Neverland


While We Search for Neverland

Sometimes within this stream
of hardened conscious we live,
that the mistaken oft times call life,
we soon enough find ourselves
in that long and shallow place
where breath and heart beat
are carefully measured.

This is That Hallowness


This is that hollowness
that comes at us
with a new found vengeance,
as Mr. Darkness creeps a little closer
into our souls, our essence,
with his half-hearted offerings,
knowing we will open to him
a little more easily with each passing day

if he can just get us to watch and equate
the slow departure of sunshine
as it falls out of view.

A Hallowness of Heart


This is that hollowness of heart
where all lost loves live
within the twilight of our memory.
That shining city on the hill
where birthdays are never forgotten
and every tomorrow lives, but a blink away.

This is That Glittered Place


This is that glittered place
where time stops at irregular intervals
for passersby while pleasures are offered
as a measure of their daily sustenance.
That hollowness in thought
where dreams of sight are offered to the blind,
and the sweet sounds of music
are divided among the deaf as a prize,
like silver and gold
are teased upon the impoverished.

That Place of Expletives


This is that place where expletives are used
as a mainstay of daily language

and boxes containing all lost yesterdays
are stacked on a shelf
and sold to the highest bidder

for the petulance of the price of a cheeseburger
if promises are made for payment
promptly in the A.M. on every second Tuesday.

This is That Place, the Hallowness of Love


This is that place, that hollowness of love
where fantasies are lost or won
in the span of a swelling room
within the wink of vacant eyes.
That empty place where love dies
a horrible death and lies

and those who spill them
live out their lives
in polished bronze busts
forged in the hearts of those
who dare not believe

that God lives
and He looks like us.

I pray all will enjoy and celebrate a beautiful Sunday.

Michael Jackson entitled his home "Neverland," a place of paradise for kids who never want to grow up. He had the money to buy his dreams and eventually found them in a drug-induced death.

As you point out, Utah, Neverland is the place where fantasies are lost or won, putting the odds of winning at a paltry 50%...not a place this lady would be playing.

You know J M Barrie wrote Peter Pan and created a world of Fantasy with a boy who never grew up and Michael identified himself with this image of Peter Pan. I call myself Tinker Bell as I love to make dreams come true. Yep I have the Pixie Dust to make my true friends fly too.

But there was a time we created a world in the human land of Mortality and that was Neverland, heard his daughter Paris has built a Zen Garden out there in memory of her father too.
Paris, is Aries like me and I know how death of a loved one affects us, sadly, the 2700 acre Sycamore Ranch was his haven too and many came in and tainted it and some of them include Debbie and Lisa and the so called victims of child molestation. They all did it for the money as always, with fame comes the fakes.

Now to be able to find Neverland you have to find your inner child, if you are able to be that child you will be the only one who can enter and unlock that world of fantasy within without a taint.

See, I created my world and that is now my professional image that I am keen on developing further. Now good luck with your dream of Neverland and I see LoverME has asked for you to play with him tonight, beware, he is a cross gartered male who used to dress to work in skirts and pigtails.
He uses the image of Jack and Rose (Kate was Rose remember???) . He uses codes like this to get his sexual fantasies going and makes males females and females males etc. Take care of yourself. He is a Satanist too.

The Darkness of Michael's life is caused by the grifters and grabbers who gave him ill-gotten advice and took their 30 pieces of silver to create fame and life for themselves. Would anyone ever know he just wanted a friend who could understand him for being him while Debbie induced the medical professional know how that ultimately killed him, Lisa Marie the wench from his childhood dreams destroyed him and then was Liz who was his Wendy who made all the lost boys of Neverland grow and study and have a mother who would read them stories and bring them love at all times.
Well Peter Pan and Wendy have both gone back to Neverland and Tinker Bell is following shortly, its time as that is where I want to be.

Just thought I would share this with you although I have to say, I identify with Michael the most and know his hurt, trouble and pain was all caused by misguidance right from his young upbringing till the time of what made him an image none could recognize.

He missed his kids growing up with two of them attaining majority. One is 18 and the other soon to be 17. He loved them dearly none the less.

Thought provoking Utah Jay. For me, Neverland, a cherished place, is within my heart, my attitude, and the willingness to accept those not to my liking but necessary for peace of mind. Man proposes, God disposes is my take on life - siva

This is a great piece, Utah Jay! Congrats on the star-page! "Neverland" is like a temporary escape from reality. It is very much like Hollywood!

Thanks Lady, but Mike (I like little boys) Jackson was not who I was thinking of, having been molested myself he is no hero to me...But to each his or her own I guess.

A hordes of treasure here Utah Jay! your last line "God lives
and He looks like us." reminds me of a song in 90s about God being everywhere but I forgot the complete lyrics of the song but I think its a Joanne Osbourne song "One of Us" the same song Alanis Morisette gave her own rendition.
