The Horses

Let them run

They are so beautiful

So alive

The fluid motion

The easy grace

They are so nosy

Wanting what you have

Wanting more

Which makes you dig

Dig deep in your soul

Where the shadows lie

That’s where you find your true self

These animals

They yearn for your affection

They let you run

Run wild and free

Not with your feet but with your mind


Can go anywhere

Anywhere in the eyes

Of an animal

Try to see just what they see

And just how they see it

You should try it sometime


Might get lost

But these animals will bring you back

Back to the world that’s worth living

They are a gift to be treasured

Protect them

And let them run

Run where they see fit

This is why they are here

They are here to show

You and I

Just how


Being able to go

Go anywhere

Is to the soul

Never forget this

Lest you forget who






I look into your eyes

I touch your soul

I find the doors to the walls

Those fortified walls to your heart

I ask nothing of you

I accept what I am given

I am a man

I can see your pain

I want to wash it all away

This brings out your smile

That radiant reflection

Of who you are

This is a confusing world

How to tell you how I feel

I do not know, I am in the dark

Your light is right at the end of my tunnel

Yet it seems so out of reach

I know not what love is

Yet if it is this feeling of helplessness

Of hope for the future

The burning in my chest

The tingling of my fingers

At your touch

You do not know

And maybe that is best

For to let you know

Is to let you in

And that scares me

Scares me beyond belief

No one gets close

No one gets hurt

No hurt, No pain

Just sorrow

These words pound out strong

Like the beating of my heart

And these words are erractic

Also like my heart

My words, My soul

I pour out upon

The pages of time

The tears that flow

Wash my pain

From my face

Buy my insides

Have no tears

To wash them

They burn on

Bright as the sun

This really is not painful

There is so much joy

I am happy

Your smile is my guide

To understand you

That is to be happy

You may never know

I may never tell

But you my lady

Are Special
