Ours is a Lego Reality

Ours is a Lego Reality

A Poem by ilurvekinilaw
"

Random stuff. Haven't finished for a long time.

"

Ours is a Lego reality

Of plastic mortar enclosing the breadth

Of our existence.

Our aim is to reach our own

Version of

Heaven

And so we stack the bricks,

Saccharine yellow and fiery red

Lonesome blue and saturnine green.

Pick your color from the spectrum that

Is yet to be defined and penned.

This is enough to rival Babel

And shame

The pyramids of Egypt.

We’ll reach

Heaven

Or die

As the bricks tumble

Disconsolately

Around our reddened ears.

I thought the name was pretty funny, not that it's a bad title, it's actually an awesome one, but man I'm glad I decided to check this out. Truly wonderful. Great word choice. Beautiful imagery. Very, very good job.

I'm not particularly fond of writing. I just see it as a cathartic way of purging myself (whatever that means). I prefer having total strangers comment on my work rather people I know. I have no idea .. more..
