There is no Time to Fly

There is no Time to Fly

A Poem by Nico
"

political!!

"

today I don't want
to meet people
close all the doors
I want to avoid people
that cause confusion
and that continuously
tell lies...

 

I stay here alone with you
and we will keep all danger
at a safe distance
I stay here alone with you
I want to finish off before
the sky falls down on this room...

 

let me breathe
a moment of peace
the last draught of fresh air
I only want to dedicate myself
to the most valuable feelings
especially if they involve you.

 

let me taste this moment
of peace in order to feel
it deep inside me
today dreams land
and close their wings
because there is no time to fly...

 

the lighted city looks
like an enormous flipper
when seen from the hill...
even when this is not a game...
we are still marbles darted
away in a dense crowd...

 

let me taste this moment of peace
far away from every war
which you do not support either
far away from blasts of images
and various spreadings
of poisoned ink around us...

 

who knows when such
a moment will come back
if ever such a moment
could be a normal situation.

 

today dreams land
and close their wings
because there is no time to fly...

Some amazing imagery, really nice stuff. I love the "we are still marbles darted
away in a dense crowd...". That hit the mark. I mean really good. To be slightly critical, I think that the flipper imagery before this line is a bit odd and not inkeeping with the rest of the poem, although it's a fair and true bit of imagery it feels a little, well, almost childish. That's just how I read it anyway.
Lovely piece though.

literary perfection.
I may be a little biased because I feel this so closely to myself.
the first three stanzas, you had me pinned.
absolutely fantastic.
