You Told Yourself So…

February 24, 2010

To perch your whole self
On a pin prick of beauty,
Tethered to reality

By a mis-aimed hope,
Existing only
-balanced-
In your mind.

To fall in the head,
Can cause much more damage
Than bruises,
And broken bones.

I’ve fallen
In my mind,
And live
With the limp.

So, when your pin prick moves,
Or your hope is shot, amiss,
Never forget,
Never forget
This:
That you told yourself so.
You told yourself… So
You
Told yourself…
“So?”

    I love your line “perch your whole self
    On a pin prick of beauty”…wonderful imagery!

    Thanks, slpmartin! =)

    I praise God for it… He’s the Giver of brains, and the Creator of the original things, like birds, and beauty, that make imagery useful in the first place. =)

    P.S.

    You’ve got some interesting art up on your blog…

    Are they sketches?
