My Imaginary Friend’s Three Imaginary Fears

Three Upright

“I fear that should you read my mind
You’ll find my mind ain’t there.
I fear I’m holding you behind.
Don’t leave to run off where
Nighttime’s dreamings cannot stand.
I must not hesitate.
I fear I’ll reach my outstretched hand
Too fashionably late.”

Linked to dVerse Quadrille hosted by Victoria Ceretto-Slotto with prompt word “fear”.  The pub opens at 3 PM EST.  Come join us!

It looks like jasenphoto’s Tuesday Photo Challenge also has “Three” as a theme. So I am linking this as well

  1. Absolutely, lol. I’ve been invited to chat with Sherry at Poets United, at the end of August. She asked me to outline my experiences with the dragons. It will be on a Monday, and I’ll try to remember to post it to Facebook. You might be interested?

    1. Yes, I’m interested. I follow Poets United although I don’t link there often. I will look for the chat you will have with Sherry later this August. I only occasionally use Facebook. Do you have a Facebook page? I didn’t see it on your blog.


  2. I love this poem. Frank. I used to have imaginary friends when I was a child. I was an only child and always wanted a brother or sister so thus the reason for my imaginary friends. Your poem brings on some great memories.

    1. Thank you, Eugenia! I can see a child having an imaginary friend. I wonder to what extent we are separate as individuals. We seem connected and our thoughts may be connected as well with others. I think there may be a way to justify imaginary friends as real and not just internal to us as individuals, whatever individuals are defined to be.
