Let Me

Take me away
away from here
from the sound
the smell
and the mirror
let me breathe
away from here
where I can talk
be heard
and speak more
than one word
let me be
away from here
where I don’t
have to look
over my shoulder
and feel every look
getting colder
and colder
let me stand
away from here
up straight
with no weight
pushing me down
let me do
away from here
be how
I need to
and don’t ask
what or who
let me live
away from here
one day
some day
another day
let me be
just let me be.

About Paul

I think of my blog as an all-you-can-read buffet. There's something for everyone and complimentary mints at the door as you leave.

    Amazingggggg. Poetry time with Paul is one of my favorites! As usual, super
    Raw and cut-open, but like in a subtle, not too much blood type
    Of cut! Love!
