If I Were ~ Part 2

If I were a bird
soaring high up in the sky
I would watch the world beneath
see the people and their lies

If I were a whale
wandering seas and oceans deep
I would hide beneath the waves
for my safety I must keep

If I were a lion
roaming through my vast kingdom
I would cower at their guns
until the hunters were all gone

If I were a man
with the world beneath my feet
I would rape it for myself
it is mine for me to keep

My Window

Shadows pass never looking in
through murky glass the lights are dim
watching the world pass silently by
sometimes they laugh, sometimes they cry

To glimpse the others from deep within
some tall, some fat, some round, some thin
I wonder where their haste takes them
as I peer from deep within my den

Afraid to venture to the other side
where reality exists, you have to live life
such fear strikes through my fragile soul
behind my window growing ever old

A cocooned world of safety and light
hidden from life, hidden from sight

The Connection

Beep, beep. Beep beep
goes my text coming in
when I’m just pressing send
yes we did it again
it’s our pattern you see
being one
~ her and me

Way back in time
when my thoughts were just mine
I really couldn’t see
what she would truly mean
that this love could be
so real
~ for me

It may take it’s time
that love most don’t find
but one day it will rhyme
as you merge into one
with each others thoughts
playing just a single tone

This connection we found
after years milling around
until fate intervened
and made us
it seems,
finally be
