Corduroy Pants

Corduroy Pants

A Poem by CosminDZS
"

"It was there where I found myself hitting sticks against the branches"

"

The edges of my corduroy pants were wet
when I’d come home with my bicycle.

Nobody ever knew where I went,
and brought back stories of angels
watching over suburbs so that the
demons couldn’t touch us.

It was when the rain settled
on the asphalt I would look for treasure,
in the puddles where I dipped my fingers
to streak my face with mud.
And when it first snowed I embraced
the flakes with my arms and kissed
the earth below so that I tasted the dirt
and it tasted better than anything.

It was there where I found myself
hitting sticks against the branches
that always fought back
but never gave way
to the poundings of my soul.

This is so beautiful and touching and I can envision everything you described in this poem. It takes me back to simpler times as a child. I love this. Great write!

A beautiful soulful write. The paths we take, the encounters, the angaelic whispers, the tracing of our identity. A splendid poem. :).........
