My Extraordinary Journey

I am going to try again. The last time I tried to post here what I posted wasn't how it appeared on the site. I know you were having some upgrading going on. Hopefully this will work better . . .

lost and alone I wandered
the landscape was familiar to me
in a surreal sense
my steps took me into a strange door
don’t ask me how
but I knew this was an undisturbed place
I reached for the door
to discover its secret within
my hand touched not the door
for it evaporated
leaving me inside
feelings of a charming, but slightly untamed way 
like carnival candied apples
I waited
waited for the purity of the moment
to speak to me
this, I felt
was the same feeling Adam
of that garden of old must have felt
a place where the unfamiliar was found not good enough
oh, my eyes sought out
a pre-adolescent child
a stranger-child
yet something stirred inside me
his soft white hands
beseeched me near with a naïve smile
his piercing blue eyes
showed no trace of anxiety
I saw virtue in this dreamlike child
 UNSUPPORTED CODE you are there and I am here
come play with me
for I’m the innocence you were back then UNSUPPORTED CODE
