Wouldn’t you rather

If I bought you a million dollar wrist watch,
darling, do you think
it would stop time for us?
would we feel as free, in an infinity pool
will the water kiss us like ocean waves?
would diamonds the size a fist,
mean that you have the same size
of a heart full of love,
just because the champagne glasses brimmed
would our days too brim
with mad love?

Wouldn’t you rather find
that dusty book
you and I always wanted
in the dingy little corner
of a second hand store,
rather scrape our knees
hiking an endless plain,
and complain how
big the world
is compared to us.
but trade
several thousand smiles
to luxury nights
in concrete boxes
that steal our skies?
wouldn’t you rather read
the stories written
in the stars,
for the next ten thousand nights?




Not a sky too high,

No slope too steep

look your demons in the eye,

Oh! darling as you leap…

You could always choose

to close your eyes

but with them wide open

you’ll soar more miles.

Your heart would soar,

in one eclectic dream,

as you see this world

for what it is.

You would even hit

a rock or two,

it would sting and hurt

till you get through..

You will learn to smile,

You will learn to cry

When you loose your wings,

You’ll learn to fly.
