Thick - Poem by Leria Hawkins

Date: January 20,2013

In all the world to understand
The simple lines drawn by man
Across the river filled with dreams
Soaked in perils and risky schemes
Up and down the cadence flies
Colliding with my sand burned eyes
Around the corner, past the trees
The fire is lost inside of me
Again, again I chew the page
Trying to fill the empty cage
But the clouds keep closing in
Again I fail to understand
Like a monkey on my back
I'm brooding in my sleepless rack
Words ignite, go round n' round
Screaming but without a sound
The dog outside, it barks and barks
Circling like a hungry shark
My muse begs for a little taste
Before the passion goes to waste
If only I could make some sense
But ignorance is my best defense
I try to see as others see
But I simply don't, for the life of me
