*The Life Less Travelled By*
.
You've got these caged Faraday hands
You cup lightning and sip it without
Implicitly implying
The sky was lying when it
Said it's flash-bombs would burn
Life into dying limbs.
You always have to go the extra mile
To prove a quivering point on a broken compass.
You yearn for wild, you yearn for free,
Wound up in the beaurocracy of
Commutes and white shirts.
This shit hurts to walk away from,
I know!
It's like scraping off layers of sediment long
Compressed into limestone.
But staying in the cage won't
Quiet the rush of blood in your veins that
Shouts "Come away!",
This equilibrium is coming undone,
A life of regret is more stifling than wild fire smoke.
Don't choke on the wanting.
.
____________________________

As clichéd as it sounds, sometimes I do wake up with snippets of poetry in my head. I woke today and wrote "Faraday hands sipping lighting" in my notebook, then wrote the rest of this around that phrase while waiting for my coffee. Also wove in today's word prompt "Equilibrium" from the #tealmoonstorm list. .
This is about being desperate to *do things*, travel, live an extraordinary life, but always being terrified to try, and finding a hundred reasons for it not to work. It *is* terrifying, I know - I've been there and I left a comfortable job to chase a dream. But if there is anyway you can make a life outside of the daily grind, doing something that fires you up, that will keep you fed and safe and with somewhere to sleep... it's worth a try. Nothing has to be permanent if you don't want it to be, or if it's not working. .
(A Faraday cage is an cage used to block electricity and lightning)

I never really asked for a fairy tale love
because they never tell you what begins after the happy ending
Do the happy couples fight?
Do they ever feel like they made a mistake
or jumped the bandwagon too soon?
Do they ever worry about the fact that some day their love is going
to tip over and spill,
and then it would be irreconcilable?
And then every little thing that love would do wrong
would seem like a crime against the self?
So I never asked for a fairy tale loving,
for it has too many plot holes to tell!
But I did ask, one day, for a perfect kind of loving
A love where there would be no place for doubt
to harbour like a sore
where there would be nothing to hide
or cry about
one which would not only take but also give
where there would be no tug of war for trust and faith,
no hopes to tame,
a love boiled to perfection
so it doesn’t tip over and spill
So it was impossible for me to believe
when they took my love
brushed it at the edges
and embossed it
in between the shiny pages of
a 9*11 print
placed on a window sill
to be tucked away
as a myth,
to be forgotten
or mused at
in leisurely hours to fill

Little Circles. The park's alive, thronged at two with
roundabout shrieks and 'too high' cries from hollow o mouths;
sharp jazz crotchets of thin-throated play float
as the second-rate band hacks at first-rate tunes.
Tots and tweens pitch themselves in somersaults
and tight-topped teens with vibrant shirts but darker looks
perfect u-turn frowns. Half an ale evaporates
in sticky older hands. Just one more... the plastic mouth goads.
Outside this wide green, gardened circle,
revolving at the centre of town,
the public house serves battered cod clients.
On its gaudy shopfront sup punters,
and between toothless benches, one orange mouth trembles.
It goldfishes open atop slack breasts and lips spilling pints and
misspelt swears.
Her boy, full football kitted, absorbs agape.
A double-hoodied shambles lashes both with wet whip tongue,
his hatchet face an angry open hole
red-raw with drink and momentary
purpose.
At the crossing my boys strain at the button,
puckermouthed. Only on the other side do I think to ask
'Am I better?' ‘Will you miss this?’ ‘Do you trust me?’
‘Does she need help?’ But don’t.
On this side two young attend a fallen man.
Four older walk by with
little circle mouths
little circle eyes.
All the little circles.
Bubbles avoiding collisions.
All continuing
imperfect
tense.
Returning home
I ignore 3 homeless;
2 charity workers;
an acquaintance.

You’ve taken much of my time,
much of energy.
You’ve been the main contributor of my stress and heartache.
You’ve held me back and held me down.
You, many times.
I can’t seem to shake whatever hold you have on me.
You’re not my lover and far from a friend.
And surely not a comforter.
Let go of me.

He's My Honeydew
By N.E

Today I decide. I will be a better me. I will be a sweeter me. I will believe people and not question weather they are lying to hurt me. I will let light into my heart again. I will be who I was. I will be strong, but soft. Today I decided.
Regrannman.poetry - It won't happen overnight, but it won't happen at all if you don't let it. .
