Gray Matter


I stopped closing my eyes
and for a while I saw myself fly
Wandering around the deep blue sky
With my hair billowing and my fingers gliding
Around around around the blue swirls go
All seemed fine and all seemed like gray
But the blue swirls decided to stay

And I’ve been waiting for another beat
to come my way, ready to give that break
I’ve been needing for so long, for so long

I closed all windows and I broke all doors
My eyes are still wet from drowning in yours
I breathe in and I breathe out
It’s time to break out from this grey matter.

  1. Addybee, I would like to feature this poem in either September or October on my Poetic License series. Once a month I post great poetry that I find by searching blogs such as yours. If you allow me to use your poem, you will get full credit and a link back to your site.

    Three times a year I will also be combining the previous four months into one large magazine style post. If you don’t mind please let me know. If you would like to see an example, the first magazine issue of the last trimester of 2010 was posted on January 6th ( with the poems from Sept-Dec of 2010.

    Here is the link to the January Poetic License ( if you would like to see it before you decide. Thank you for your consideration, regardless of your decision.
