This is a poem about life and love. I really wanted to do a poem on this blog because I love them in general- they're like songs without music. So below is a little ditty I just wrote!
When the rain is blowing in your face,
And thunder is crashing on your soul,
Lightning has destroyed the road before you,
There's nowhere left to go.
Turn northwards towards the mountains,
Climb the sheer cliffs of Dover,
With childish hope in your heart- the summit is reached;
There's no more cliff to climb.
Fly upwards and onward,
The seagulls wave hello,
Like Icarus, my wings start to melt,
There's no more clouds to race.
Walls are built before me,
Goals that cannot be scored,
People keep on talking,
But they don't know what to say.
The light goes green on answers,
That I don't know how to ask,
Questions which run round in my mind,
So many still to go,
I head off to a place,
I'm not sure I should be,
Words stumble in my mouth,
Creating tense situations,
Is it OK to flash my colours,
Or keep them under wraps?
Talk the talk- and walk the walk,
Or quiet the quiet- and shuffle the shuffle.
Is it OK to think of this,
Or keep it in a treasure chest,
No one will ever find.
Hard to make decisions,
It's hard to choose a path,
Put yourself out there,
Or be locked in a handmade cage,
Put yourself out there or....
