Float Away

I can hold you
In my arms
And tell you
All the lies
You've been longing
To hear
And mean
Every word
I say
Because those lies
Are the same lies
I've been dreaming
Of, for so long
And we'll lose
Ourselves
In blind
Blissful
Ignorance

float away


This piece is included in my poetry collection COLDER, available at Amazon.

  1. Eventually we start believing our own lies and mistaking them for the truths. I very much loved this piece today! Especially,
    “And mean
    Every word
    I say
    Because those lies
    Are the same lies
    I’ve been dreaming
    Of, for so long”
    Thanks for the share! ~K

      1. I’m just so in awe of the gift.

        BTW, I went to the Great Sand Dunes National Park Saturday and thought of you looking at this magnificent space.

      2. It’s a bit overwhelming. There were done backpackers planning to camp overnight there. I can only imagine how beautiful and surreal it would be at night.

  2. Oh…E

    I can easily say, this is my favourite piece I’ve ever read of yours.

    It’s INCREDIBLY romantic, but a little dangerous and a little scary in a way just because we want so badly to be told certain sweet, hot things and we wish and plead that they are not lies but still…
    I am rambling and predict you will answer me with your usual thank you, lol.

    Just know you touched me with this one

  3. Sometimes we blur the lines between truth and lies we lie so often that is transcends into our shared reality having said that it was amazing and I’d really appreciate your feedback on some of my content. Regards.
