We’ll make it to the moon if we have to crawl

With the birds
This view we'll share
From the skies to the trees
So goes this gentle breeze
Like the lift of lollipop
From your lips to your kiss
I'm falling over myself
Just to lick your heart and taste your hips…

I'd die for you
Just to know
You feel me too
And when our story is told
They'll know
I did it all for you…
Like the gentle whisper
Your careless gesture this will's last breath…

Cause it's only with the birds
I feel truly free
And yet when I share it with you
This lonely view
I know it's with you
And so we soar
Ever higher just to feel free
Knowing full well
Misery…

And with this view
I'll share it with you
So come with me
Gentle one
And soar with the eagle wing
Pretending to climb higher
Hoping just to feel free
Hoping just to share this view
Hoping because I know
Hoping because…

About Michael Medlen

My name is Michael and during my free time I avoid having a day job. Strangely enough, this gives me the freedom to run this blog. I write just about anything that can be considered art. I also occasionally post articles that may or may not be relevant to the theme of this site. You’ve been warned.

  3. 🙂 I’d love to return the favor but I think you deserve an actual article describing your mastering tongue of the American limerick. Maybe in the future I could make that happen.

  4. Well…if the spirit moves…! I do have an excellent liberal arts education, and a teaching degree—helping me focus on how people could best understand the point I’m trying to get across. I wrote for a limerick newsletter for a couple of years, and try to compose limericks each and every day…forcing myself to write.. That’s basically it, plus believing it is a gift from God given that I had to develop. 🙂

  5. I hear ya. Your background sounds similar to mine. Liberal arts degree with some teaching experience. I try to force myself to write but lately I’ve been selling some blog articles and reviews to help fund my marketing business. But poetry is always on the tip of my pen waiting to be expressed…
