Poetic Exploration of the Heart

Out At Last

Stepping out I look about –
It’s crazy, to see in full color
on such a gloomy day…
I’m used to seeing the world around me
in fifty shades of grey.

As I inhale the smell of the rain
my fingers clutch with throbbing pain
my hands warm out of deep freeze
ready to give, ready to please

Passing by shop windows,
as I quietly inspect
my own reflection I try to detect
something that seems out of place…
like the smile I can’t wipe off my face

The thought of you
I can’t shake off my mind
The more I shake the more I feel confined
to bonds of my dirty, dirty mind…

  • 1.
    Breathe in and out,
    that’s number one,
    nicely done.
  • 3.
    Breath in and out
    that’s number three,
    I’m breaking free
  • 2.
    Breathe in and out
    that’s number two,
    easy to do
  • 4.
    Breathe in and out
    that’s number four,
    foot out the door

I count my breathing
as my thoughts roam about
Breathe in, breathe out,
It’s easier said than done –
Counting I always end up
back at breath number one.

Breathe in, breathe out,
Wherever I go, whatever I do
my thoughts keep going back to you.
The beautiful, unique, incredible you.
The fierce, tender, strong, sexy you.

All kinds of you for all kinds of me.
Between us there’s a huge playground
Different games, different rules, yet
we go on playing round after round.

The others thought I was all grown up
and done.
Fuck, even I thought I was all grown up
and done with ever again having fun.
But you dove into the deep
and found the one me I wanted to keep,
the one me I tucked away
not sure if she’d ever see the light of day.

And here we are,
twenty years have passed,
my favorite me is out at last.
So lover,
thank you for meeting me at 24
I really couldn’t ask for more.
