I wonder what is there
Just beyond where my mind can see
What am I searching for
That streams dreamy colors
Through my thoughts
And in my most complacent moments
Play silly games
Dodging, flying through my eyes
Until my brain breathes them over my lips.
If only I could see their light
Reflecting back upon me
As they escaped into the world
That lodges my unconscious dreams.
My true desire is to follow their flight
And shyly discover what I am made of.
Written when I was 16
It was the first poem I posted in December of 2011 when I joined the soup.
I removed poems after that and started to repost other new ones but this was
the first one I ever posted and was my first "real" poem as well. It was frightening at first like most new adventures are.
