I Want to Be in a Breeze So Strong You Can Hold It.

K Mascis

 

I want to stand on the edge of the world

Held up by a breeze so strong you can hold it.

I want to push back against the winds

To be encompassed by the whirling thrashing tearing

To see the trees bow down.

I want to see the grass ripple like water.

I want to see the water glimmer like faith.

 

I want to fall asleep in the field

Caressed by sheets of grass.

I want the air to scratch a lullaby

The ground damp and alive

My dreams to be empty and my thoughts to be used.

I want to burn my eyelids and forget tomorrow.

I want to drown in the sun.

 

I want to wake up under the stars

Glimpse the eyes of unfathomable distance.

I want to feel the chill of autumn sung through the trees

To shiver and huddle into my own arms

To meet the moon.

I want to wonder home through dead inviting leaves.

I want to sleep.

Fantastically beautiful stuff, K. Mascis! My favorite part is:
'"I want the air to scratch a lullaby/The ground damp and alive/My dreams to be empty and my thoughts to be used/I want to burn my eyelids and forget tomorrow."
....Now THAT"S a list of wants to live n' die for!

I want to be able to write poetry, like you write poetry!
I want to make my words glimmer, like you make 'em glimmer!
ROCK ON! ㋡
