The Importance of Being Earnest

“Be yourself, everyone else is already taken” – Oscar Wilde

Half of my heart, Three of me, Two of you

What do I do?

Running in, running from, running out

Can’t find the route

Written up, written down

Written on the walls

Silver doors, glass falls

Pick at the scabs, lick the wounds

Shoveling under, trying to reach you

Nothing but a smoky shadow

Let me out, let me fly

Honeysuckle sunlight

•••

I blink three times and change as the day breaks

Chance is all we have

But I’m facing the world with a mask in my hand

Shadows back and figures forward

•••

There he stands, Mr. Mischievous Man

He had me consoled

Twirling my thoughts into spun gold

A poet’s face, and Einstein’s mind

Give me the look, read me like a book

Tell a tale of a white whale

Then take my daughter and disappear

Seal the deal in waters clear

He is land, and now I sea

Little Mermaids weren’t meant to be

Let me out, let me fly

Honeysuckle sunlight

•••

I blink three times and change as the day breaks

Chance is all we have

But I’m facing the world with a mask in my hand

New World’s old, Old World’s new

•••

And then I feel warmth and smell the green

Sprouting from disaster, I see the bean

Even in Winter, Spring and Photosynthesis abound

I am out, I have found

The place where I can fly

And honeysuckle sunlight

•••
