It Doesn't Make Sense


As the car moves toward home, my thoughts don't seem to want to go there just yet.

I didn't
want
to leave
the place of
salty air
and kite rooms
and lyrical boys.

Not only
did I survive
the days
which I didn't think
I could,
they refreshed me,
revitalized me,
reminded me
of what I've been
missing.

What does that mean
exactly?

My thoughts
don't seem
to want to go there
just yet
either. comments

This is another piece beautifully written :) I sometimes ask the question, "What does that mean
exactly?"

I love that EE Cummings quote! And you wrote a beautiful poem to go with it. :)

I didn't know you were into poetry. Your poem got me really thinking and I like the rhythm of it. Hope to read more.

it doesnt make sense at all iwas trying to figure out everything. i guess making this poems makes everything else in right direction. or you might be glad you made this poem and it will give you the right direction

and kite rooms and lyrical boys.

The quote from EE Cummings I can relate to.

Your poem evokes some kind of fear, I just can't seem to figure out.
