I’ll go into hiding where you wont see me.
Where my shadows are pure darkness
Where my smile will be light
and my breath: life.

I’ll go into hiding and I will flee.
Like a caterpillar on a cocoon
I’ll hide inside
So your thoughts wont bother me
I’ll leave all the hurt, the misery
On floating people’s realm.
So that after the rain,
I can say that the rainbow removed my pain.

I’ll go hiding and lurk on somebody else’s erms
Where fishes are salmons and gems are diamonds.
I’ll go into hiding where I am nobody.
Unlike the butterflies, I need more time to be free,
Three months, give me three months,
And I will be me.

    “Three months, give me three months,
    And I will be me.”

  8. orange says:

    You captured something that is sometimes really hard to capture… a desire for space, a desire to think freely, a desire to just be…

  9. A metamorphosis that is so naturally compelling and well-depicted:)

  13. SeaGlass says:

    There is a slight hint of Emily Dickinson in this- do you read much of her work?

  14. Thea says:

    Yep, this mortal coil stuff’s a bugger, eh? I like your idea of metamorphing LOTS better than shuffling off…

    Nicely done!

  16. Oh my! A poem we can all relate to Bixxx. Nicely writtin. You okay?

    • B says:

      Thanks love.
      As much as I want to lie and tell you I’m okay and I’m enjoying my holidays, I can’t.
      Being away from my family during this season, yeah, I’m pretty much over that, it’s been years that I am not celebrating with them. But to celebrate Xmas and New Year without my friends, well, that’s a different story.
      Am just really sad. 😦

      But hey, at least I’ve got a good job right?

      We can’t have it all. 😦

      Thanks again for passin thru hun!
