Sometimes all I want, is to run!

A 100 miles in the opposite direction
like a bat out of hell
screaming at the top of my lungs
saying words I would never speak.

Sometimes all I want, is to run!

Directly into your path
away from nightmares
into dreams
straight into your arms.

Sometimes all I want, is to run!

Into the sea
drowning my sorrow
never to see or feel
into the future.

Sometimes all I want, is to run!

With confidence
beyond today
never having to worry
for the rest of my life.

Sometimes all I want, is to run!

Yes it can Tracey! You started me off with
the portrait. The portrait to me is a
presence shattered. All broken up. But as
she runs ... the poem changes to fulfillment,
to lonliness, to the thought that life is a
fantasy and running avoids it. ?? I hope I
am close somewhere in here. But you are
right. Everyone will see it differently,
and some like myself may see things that
aern't there. Isn't this what good poetry
does? It is explicit and easy to read and
enjoy, yet in its simplicity lies its
complexities. Some writers here are very
complex but thoroughly misunderstandable.
They seem to love to wite to confuse and vex
the mind. You write clearly and achieve
what they cannot. They cannot communicate.
Their complexities presented only clouds
their poems, and many will say to them that
the poem is wonderful ... without the
slightest idea what the poet is talking
about. But you have advanced far beyond
their talented but very rudimentary skills.
Everyone should read and analyse this poem.
Maybe they will learn how to advance to a
more meaningful level in their work. I know
I will. Good poetry communicates, not
obfuscates, and this is good poetry.

Very nice Tracey!

Meant that as two entirely different meanings, I think faster than I type which is unusal for a man with such a small brain and big hands.

I read it standing on one foot with my mouth open and then standing on the other foot with my mouth closed and your right, too entirely different meanings.
