Can’t I?

Can’t I

Lose myself between words, get lost

Between the pages of a dusty old book

That nobody opens, curl up

Like a C, go to sleep

Warm and cosy

And hope that nobody will notice?

Can’t I

Hide between the leaves

Of a dewy frangipani tree,lulled

By the tranquil scents,smile

At a rising sun, float

To an embracing earth,borne

Upon the feathery wings,of a

Gentle flowing breeze?

Can’t I

Dive in to your arms, lose myself


In to the folds of your skin, dissolve

In to the pores of your flesh,hide

In the marrow of your bones, flow

Within the course of your veins

Dwell within

Without ever been seen but

Forever felt?

    Cozily cuddling between the pages of a book or between two words – How I wish! It is a very clever image, one that any writer/reader will die to be in.

    Like how you finished the poem about wanting to be felt and not seen. Everyone’s dream put in such remarkable poetry.

    such a warm cuddly poem…

  11. WOW. Such beautiful words, almost lyrics in their flow. The repetition of “Can’t I” between each stanza is brilliantly effective. Amazing poem.

    such vivid natural images, and great ending!

  16. ‘Behind the leaves!’ Behind them still leaves us much open to view from other angles. I love this. How ardently we plea for that which we crave of have a passion for.

    I think you are a song or a poem. A lonely song?
