Falling in My Mind

I want to dance among the stars,

Play hopscotch on the moon.

I want to twirl in distant space,

Then come crashing to my room.

I want my mind to fog my eyes;

I want to disappear.

I want to sink in seas of thought;

I want anywhere but here.

I want my imagination

To swell me up inside,

Send me twisting through my dreams,

And spit me out alive.

I want to lay up on the roof,

Catch the sunrise in my hand,

And release it on the pages

Of a barren no-man’s land.

I want my heart to flutter.

I want my mind to reel.

I want my head to spin–

I want, again, to feel.
