hung from the stars


i am not fast
and i don’t run towards anything
but trouble
swinging from nooses
hung from the stars
flying from one
to the other
like a playground kid
on the rings
it’s been this way
for as long as I can remember
and my fingers still tingle
at the thought of

the seas
are sometimes stormy
with me
and the shore
not always so near
but i know
you know this
my love
no wait for me
is too long
i will return
to you

    The shore isn’t always close
    I like that . the sea is always makes a powerful metaphor
