sometimes life gives us things
backwards, like loving the right man
wrongly, which is more sin
than laughing loud & running
on sunday, but less
than murder.  still
when things are given
& perhaps
they should be held
gently and not too tight;

palms cupped
around whispers
that want to shout,
that beat wings
colored and fragile
against the cage of my hands

i do not know
which is wise
or reckless–
to hold this feeling in
or let it fly

  1. Feelings are feelings and can’t be conscripted. Follow them to their roots. Your attitude and behaviour are the only variables worth considering. And still the sun will shine tomorrow, regardless if it rains today.
