Snowflakes by Mark Brawn

Still feeling choking excitement
no time to breathe
just time to move
and gather speed
*
This sad chasm
void between tracks
you’re either endlessly wrong
or endlessly
coming back
*
I know a place
where people
don’t live like this
where they pass through walls
like easy ghosts
always in the light
Light and survive.
*
The only animals
that live willingly in snares
and take each other
for walks around
their wounds
*
Illusions have the prettiest shine
*
The struggle is over
freedom is at hand
but sometimes running unharnessed
is harder than running in sand
*
A new man is born from a collision
*
Do nothing.
Come to motionless beauty
with all senses awake
*
Someone has just blown out a candle
and made a wish
but I never saw them
too busy thinking
about the spines of trees
cracking in the breeze
*
You are my number one casualty
but you gave empty handed
and walked out so casually
that it’s almost a shame
to draw webs on your name
*
A restless woman
is a dangerous thing
she might leave before breakfast
and whistle
in another field
or stand up and
fold before your eyes
*
Punished for wanting to travel faster than life
*
To the surface we must go
and when we get there
we’ll break it
*
I must sink deep into the well
to hoist a spark of life
on this tarnished chain
*
I demand access to somewhere quieter and greener
*
Advice to poets:
EAT YOUR WORDS
AND HAVE INDIGESTION
FOR LIFE !!!!
