The rustling of leafs
The feel of the cool evening breeze on my chin
Though my heart pounds ever so brashly
For now, I’m calm
If only this serenity would last for all eternity.
Like a scarecrow dangling from a tree in dead weight
Life seems to push us here and there
Sometimes we’re so sure
So sure we are in absolute control
Some other times we don’t just know anymore.
I crave poetry.
The sound of the music in the distance
The beauty of words in open air
The sound of rhythmic strings
Come closer please?
I want to be lost in your music
Let your vocal chords bring to life,
Latent thoughts that escape plain sight in the light of day
And chase the night far into the morning.
Sing me a song oh dear beloved
Let me cower in the sweetness of your voice
I want to be comfy in your mild cacophony
Common sing to me
Let me listen so I know that all is well.
