Slight of Sleight

Slight of Sleight

A Poem by Gaige

I wonder if I could save myself
From all these fragile miracles
What I wouldn't give
Or let be taken
To not be the still boy
So easily shaken
Walking uphill
Struggling in ways I solely can
Pushing a soul of stone
Like I'm Sisyphus
But with a better plan
So I steal, and harbor, and then retreat
I lock up my house
Shut the doors and windows
And hide all my keys
Only to be found out 
By some beautiful thief
And behind my barricade
Of lost wandering
Somehow you'll find me
And manage to steal my everything
