Lost in the Shadows of Me

drunk with creativity
i long to be understood 
drunk with anticipation
pondering my actions wicked wild... and obscenely good
worry is not in my creed
viewpoints ideas inspiration desire and passion 
is what i need
i am lost in the shadows of time
looking in the mirror differently...
imagine that...the first to notice
a fellow Gemini... my homegirl Emily
I am single
no one to say they are mine 
or I theirs
one day that might change...if times dares
drunk of the love i bare
drunk on the love I can give
lost in the shadows of me
the prism of poetic insanity
love everyone in my life since the day we all first met
from the classic barbeques... to playin with water guns...or at the park gettin wet
from singing songs... dancin the night away
lost in the shadows of good times
i seem to be these past few days
i see me embracing change in what i do and what i have done
Afterall Geminis fly... we don't run
prism of passion sprinkled with a dash of drama that i really don't need
I walk away...and in turn... to the days ahead my soul plants a new seed
a tree of new wisdom all to teach and learn
I see life through the darkness... yet I am said to possess much light
Gemini at its best... with life's wonders I wrestle and fight
acts of love nothing less
