The days

that seem lost

in the wind

when I seem

at a loss

to say,

“I am feeling”

because I


a hu-man,


conquering souls

my parents only dreamt

of on their honeymoon,

California palms

catching the moon

and my heart

waiting, wanting

to know what was

real outside

my one skinned cage,

until I learned

that cage was just

a lie.
