I'll be honest and say that I was half expecting some kind of adventurous poem when I read the title, but what you have here is simply... delightful. The one promise at the end, or pact as it were, definitely describes my relationship with my writing. I would break poetry laws if given the chance, just because I know that there really are no rules when it comes to writing poetry. Those last two lines also made me think of a promise Tom and Huck would make with one another. :)
The adventures of Tom Sawyer is one of my favorite children books. I'm glad you know the story because this is a poem for people who have read it at some point in life.After finishing 'Pirates' I spent some extra minutes looking at it and thought: "you know what, these lines would make a hell of a wedding vow." :))))))) I do find the pact between Tom and Jon and the those two and Huck afterwards a delight.I'm sure you have had people in your life with whom you created a secret language, a universe of your own. If you haven't, be patient, they will come to you. I bring people who become special to me to live with me inside books. I have already lived in 'Where the wild things are', 'The Little Prince', 'Waiting for Godot', '1984', 'Lord of the flies', 'Brave New World' and just recently 'Tom Sawyer'.I know nothing about poetry, Kenn. I haven't been formally taught poetry, I can't get meter (I find it way too boring), I can't stick to form poetry (I suck at math, can't count syllables), I can't write Haiku because I do not have the required calmness in the eyes.A friend of mine suggested (after studying my blog) that I have created a set of rules to myself and they are my only law. Sometimes I think he's right.Kiss.
