Gypsy Wagon Liberater - A Poem

Updated on January 31, 2013

Awake and alone this night

I begin to forget about you –

Relief soars through me and I relax.

This great weight no longer there,

But here’s the thing I wonder still..

Wandering lost and stumbling

No light from my

Gypsy wagon liberator

On these saggy droopy guises

Thinking thoughts of I and you

And you and me –

And suddenly

Clouds drift

And I am fucking free –

Branches reaching

I am a tree -

Never lost –

I was never shivering

Next to blank spots

As the covers cleared.

And so sudden

It’s like a bottle left to drift past

Everest and somewhere left of the Bermuda.

I realize now

You could never save me

And that the passion inside

Was not what you gave me

I love you….


But I am beyond

A fury you fear to cross -

You fear to become –

As surely as memories

of you inside me echo -

I fly not on borrowed wings

But on the back of eagles

Who gift me with sight -

And smell -

And awareness -

of twitching predatory prey

I am high


So far up

That you

Can’t see me.

And with great sadness -

I sigh -


I breathe -

And joy

it fills me,

With it’s seed.

      I know the feeling all too well. It's a great feeling to soar on your own, but it's bittersweet because you wish you learned a little sooner.

      Wow, this is just stunning. I had to read this twice just to savor the amazing moment. Every hub is an adventure in words with you, Frankie. You just see the world through that amazing vision and capture it like a one-off camera. :)
