pulling away ........a poem
Just a little something about me or about you ! We are a strange lot though, are we not ? And are we just the child within , is it all just that simple ? Anyway , I hope this helps you to better understand the human condition .....and me !
A poem .....
No I don't recall the first time yet always
there is the reflex
And yet I wish I wish -upon-a something there
wouldn't be a next
One of my subconscious reactions in touch
is simply to pull away
It was there right from the first
and still there today
Yet my wish was always that someone
could change this one affliction
Message the broken wing out and away
soften this addiction
The wishes written here come from
a deepened darkened place
And yet I know how it will end
there's always a residual trace
I read once awhile ago
" we are all but the child within"
Yet within is a place I know well
yet hide there again and again
