I Miss It (Response)

I miss it too. Of course I do

Hours together in fading light

Then off adventuring

Into a warm distant night

 

We get shots at the ready

All in a line

Camera’s held steady

Taking snapshots in time

 

I miss your little made up tunes

And your cute dopey smile

I especially miss the way

That you could bring mine out

for a while.

 

It’s weird to think

how far apart we are

and the distance we travel from

even weirder that time flies by

when you’re here

yet ceases when you’re gone.

Wonder Kids

We are the exceptional,

The Apples of our mother’s eyes

Balloons that rise, rise above

Reaching for heights we ourselves cannot see.

 

We,

Dearly departed from the realm of sanity.

Giving the mundane a voice

Hearing music out of noise

We see through portals

To another world,

 

The real world, for most is

hard edges and straight lines.

For us it’s bursts and swirls.

We get lost in the real world.

 

 

We are the wonderful crazy,

The extravagant unknown

The souls that couldn’t survive

So far away from home.

 

Most of us don’t make it,

We are a glorious mistake,

Living with normality

Which was never ours to take.

 

But even though we do not see

in 1s and 0s,

We do not need rescuing.

We’re our own heroes.
