what if....



what if i hung my feelings like  photos on the wall just to remember 

what if i was a detective and searched my body for fingerprints and traces of your touch

what if i stopped right here, planted my feet, lifted my arms to the sky and grew leaves

what if i was a poem chasing its tail across the page

what if i disappeared into the crowd and swung from palm to palm like Tarzan through the jungle until i found a grasp that wouldn't let go

what if my legs moved on without me and i just stood right here, head over shoulder, waiting for the past to catch up

I liked this. especially the first one. Sometimes the feelings I have are hard to remember or even portray and if I had the perfect photo, it would capture it so nice and would last forever.

i am a new little blogger... came across your blog via the rockstar diaries.i just wanted to say that i think you are a lovely and courageous lady! sometimes the blogging world feels a little to shiny, not quite real enough. yours feels just right!

What if I told you that you inspire me?
What if I told you that you have a way with words that make my dreams and ambitions want to spring from me and become reality?
What if I said thank you?

Prianka said...

you are so real.
a lot of people are real, but most of those people can't or don't write it out. I love your blog.

I would have to echo Martha's comment!!!
What a lovely post...thank you!

Jessica Kettle said...

this is beautiful. i love it and it sorta makes wish i was a pinch more insightful... or poetic? i have to second what ilovekiwi said. you're just the right amount of shiney and real. and i'd say that's pretty tricky to come by.

thank you so much for your nice comment! to answer your q (this is so silly)- people stop to tell me all the time that i look like scarlet johansen. someone once asked me if my name was scarlet while in ca. yes. this was before i experienced a little thing called pregnancy. crack up huh? i don't really see it.

Hello,
I too am a random noter. Your blogs reminds me off cupcakes and buttons and grass. I hope you don't mind if I follow.

Now I've got you and Naomi. One more to go!

Sometimes I wonder when my hand will be grabbed in the crowd, and never let go, too. I wonder that all the time and I love this post.
