    Xanadu

    In my Xanadu, my paradise
    Cherry blossoms flow
    Endlessly regardless of the seasons.

    In my Xanadu, my paradise
    Ice and snow cannot
    Penetrate through the clouds
    It is always warm and sunny,
    Through the cool rain
    Penetrate the skies.

    In my Xanadu, my paradise
    There is no hatred, greed, envy or war
    There is only love, peace and tranquility.

    In my Xanadu, my paradise
    There is no heaven, no hell
    Neither angels nor devils
    There are no endless fluffy white clouds
    Or scorching red flames
    Only forests, beaches, and cities \
    An earthly setting

    In my Xanadu, my paradise
    I can do the same things
    I do on Earth
    I can play my video games
    I can listen to my music

    In my Xanadu, my paradise
    It smells like…
    Vanilla!

    In my Xanadu, my paradise
    Death is not the great equalizer
    Death does not exist

    In my Xanadu, my paradise
    Hopes and wishes come true
    Dreams become the reality

    In my Xanadu, my paradise
    Reality replaces the hopes, dreams
    And wishes of people

    That is my Xanadu
    That is my paradise
    That is my own personal heaven.

    Re: Xanadu

    Isn't xanadu the same name of the palace in Citizen Kane?

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    This poem is sweet, Rai. Sort of random, if I may add. However, I love this stanza:

    That is my Xanadu
    That is my paradise
    That is my own personal heaven.
    That one is a keeper. It sums the poem up, and your idea of paradise in a well written manner. Great job.

    @ pyoro: I haven't watched that movie....but I read somewhere it was the name of Kublai Khan's palace and it also means an idyllic beautiful place...so I put two and two together..

    @ lavie: how's it random? It's my vision of paradise...
