Secret Friends -- A Poem

In my last post, I mentioned a poem about my childhood toys.  I looked through my old poetry and found it.

Secret Friends--Fantasy
My dearest friends,
As is plainly seen,
Are not of flesh and bone--
But of thought--And childhood fantasy.

Behind closed doors,
Far from view
Where no mortal eye can see--
Lives a world--Of simply fantasy.

It isn't much, but I think it gives you all the gist of what I was talking about.  I wrote this in my teenage years and it was significantly different than any other poem I had written at that time.  Most of the poetry I wrote was angst filled, angry, and full of hatred (and maybe a little blasphemy...I did mention I was angry...).
