I’m in the big top
surrounded by yellow and blue
sunlight and water
And I could scream
I could jump.
I could kiss you
, and not stop myself halfway through the act
when my conscience catches up with me.
I don’t want to stop moving
I want to keep going, wherever this takes me
because this feels good
; having my feet not touch the ground
you could tell me anything right now
and none of it would matter
My freshman year of college we had an arts corner. Round about February, right about the time I was applying to go to Spain, this was my contribution.
