Ere it Bursts

Fri, 01/16/2015 - 20:13 -- k8carr

I cannot stand today

My heart dawdles behind

 

The burdens of yesterdays are

Willingly carried through

Todays for days and days.

 

I cannot stand today

My heart is eager to pass

 

The woes and cares I've

Yet to bear

 beseech my

Wandering mind of

Tomorrows ne'er to be

Reached.

 

I cannot stand today my

Heart lingers elsewhere

 

In sunlight while a

Gentle breeze

Trickles through my hair,

On mountains, with their

Ice cold hearts, looming

O'er my head,

On waters vast and

Flowing past the

Ends of the earth.

 

My heart escapes with

Tender haste.

Ere it Bursts.
