If I Could I Would



Once in a while
To brave the wild
Out in the cold
Makes me smile

I forget my Pain
I give up my shelter
in the rain
So it pours down on me
Am I insane?

Inevitable
Like the sun
Or the moon or stars
Always there
So real but
So far

So far so good
I followed the rules
Like I should
Now is the time
To break FREE!
If I could I would...

For now I float
In murky waters
How soon before 
I sink
I think I should
Swim to shore

There I can sit
Perched in the pines
And watch the day unwind
Everything coming 
To an end
Even this cage 
In which I'm penned
Font size:

skitheeast Claim this poet

Hey, some of these aren't that great but what the heck. I just like writing how I feel in the moment so some of my poems might be confusing because I was confused in that moment. Maybe thats why I wanted to write a poem, to sort out my thoughts. Anyway, just read them and hopefully just one of them will bring you some kind of joy, or make you feel some kind of connection. Peace.>>>I also do star photography - probably why space works its way into a lot of my writing. http://mcb-photography.blogspot.com/ more…
