I should be away,

Abandoning reason and common sense,

Normalcy, expectation,

Skin, blood and bone.

A beggar’s ride from nadir

To far distant crest.

And still I stay

Away, yet at home.

For horses,

Like dreams,

Are fearsome things to ride.

  1. If wishes were horses, I think of all the manure I would have to clean up. And those horses get hunger. So I’ll have to buy some hay. A proper horse needs a stable. Pretty soon I can’t afford the wishes. So I don’t wish much anymore.

    I like how you established everything and your last three lines especially 🙂
