qu'est-ce que c'est? (what is it?)

qu'est-ce que c'est? (what is it?)

A Poem by honeyleens

what do I want?


what do you mean?

am i beyond help?

has the wind whispered defeat?

do i luxuriate in the sound

of the melody of the ground

as it shakes under my feet?

(je te souhaite, dans mes mains.)

and do i, do i much

hold onto cotton

with the feel that its

my first soft touch?

qu'est-ce que tu désires?

je veux ce que je veux 

quand je le veux.

why do i do what i do?

pour les quatre noms sur ma main,

oh, noms que j'adore,

for the languid taste on 

my tongue they lay.

qu'est-ce que c'est

que je rêve?

also, this poem is a "who knows?" poem. This means, I barely know what I what I was trying to say. usually, I leave these in my blog, as a sort of work in progress and I'll wander upon it again and change it around until it means something. So feel free to critique or say what you think it means. Sometimes it takes another person to help me see. Thanks for any reviews.
