Tracking Reality

Tracking Reality

 I listen to the sound of

Wings beating on the careless sky

Wanting to make everyone understand

Reality exists with waking dreams


Love someone and hold them tight

Even if it is for just tonight

Strange how little I know

Even when the lilies flow


Down a river past the sea

Parted the shores by the galley

Of a ship washed on the beach

Pitying the trials of people who reach


Is it too late to learn?

Words become deniable

Thoughts are unreliable

Random chains of touch


Working your magic of love

You try to save someone

Who doesn’t understand

But who wants to


Tracking reality broken by dreams

Told that her fantasies were pointless

Yet wanting to learn to heal

From a massacred heart


These verses are how one speaks

In silent tongues full of riddles

When clear words are too scary

Or thoughts fail to track reality


A reality one clings to with hope

Yearning to touch someone in soul

Not being able to see in

Frustrated by not trusting in what she feels
