Seer


Air
i needed it
terribly
there was none as far as my eyes would allow me to see
no air
my lungs longed for its sweet relief
and then i saw you
beautiful you
you in all your splendor and greatness
yes, i saw you
and the air found me
i used its strength to
run
far
far
far
away from you
scared of you
and what you could do to me
i ran from you
fast as my aching heart would take me
my heart, determined to forsake me
turned my legs around
and know
i need you
i can no longer breath again
and i am running toward you
in to a forever of tomorrows
choke me with my sorrows
i am running toward you

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
