For Labor Day weekend, I want to share a poem I wrote for my husband. Blessings to everyone!

 

So many dreams
 
I mistook them for balloons
 
Streaming through life
 
Sweeping up their long curly strings in my hand
 
Wrapping them tight around my wrist
 
Pulling them down from the pale blue sky
 
Like cotton candy bouquets
 
Whenever I felt the whim
 
Just because I wanted to
 
Just because I could
 
It was so easy then
 
So much fun
 
I popped them
 
Sat on them
 
Pretended I was pregnant with them, tied them to chairs
 
Tables, my wrist and even my little brother
 
Then watched them magically float away
 
I wondered how high they could go
 
I wondered how high I could go.
 
I wondered.
 
I wanted to play in the clouds
 
So I tried
 
I jumped as high as I could off everything
 
I did back flips in gym class
 
Did cartwheels on ice
 
And sought out every trampoline I could find
 
Until one day I flew off my mother's bed and cracked my head open.
 
I wanted to fly
 
So I tried
 
I swung from the monkey bars with determination and grace
 
I dared the balance beam with my arms stretched out to the side
 
I climbed the highest ladders and slid down every slide
 
Until one day I ran a race and won but was disqualified
 
I was so excited I had walked back in someone else’s lane
 
I wanted to Love
 
And I did
 
I talked all night until we fell asleep
 
Kissed until my lips were raw
 
Made love my very first time and disappeared
 
Until one day my heart shattered
 
I watched him drive by that very day with another girl
 
I wanted to sing ~ Lisa told me my voice was too low
 
I wanted to be a model ~ Toni told me my nose was too wide
 
I wanted to act ~ I was afraid I couldn’t remember my lines
 
I wanted to play music ~ I broke my finger
 
I wanted to paint ~ Ms Mattis yelled at me because I painted outside the lines
 
I wanted, I wanted, I .wanted
 
I wanted everything!
 
But they told me I had to stop wanting so much
 
That I wanted to much
 
That I couldn’t have what I wanted
 
That you can’t have it all
 
That I was spoiled and selfish
 
To quit acting like a child
 
That life is hard and then you die
 
That money doesn’t grow on trees
 
That nobody gave them a break why should they give me one
 
There are kids starving in Africa- right now.
 
That it’s a cruel world out there
 
That your lucky if you have five true friends
 
That there is only ONE true love
 
That only 2% of the population will ever be rich
 
That there it’s us against them
 
Me against the world
 
To get over it
 
That we are going to die in 2012
 
Who do you think you are? They scorned as I tried to keep wanting.
 
I didn’t know
 
So naturally-
 
I died.
 
I watched my self fade into the bleak deserted future
 
My body hardened
 
My Spirit abandoned
 
There was nothing left but… play the game
 
Say yes when you mean no
 
Be nice to get what you need
 
Say anything to get what you want
 
Do anything to get what you can
 
Take anything you can get
 
Hang on
 
Don’t let go
 
Never say die
 
Never give in
 
Never give up
 
Take the money and run
 
Bigger is better
 
Fuck em if they can’t take a joke
 
I am laughing all the way to the bank
 
This is mine
 
That’s mine
 
These are yours
 
Those are mine
 
He’s mine
 
You’re mine
 
Wait…
 
Someone’s coming
 
He’s coming
 
Is anyone coming?
 
Is anyone out there?
 
And naturally…
 
I died again
 
 
 
And then one day I cut off my balloons
 
Me so tired of dying
 
Me want to live
 
Me want to celebrate
 
Me want to perform anyway
 
Me want to sing anyway
 
Me want to paint anyway
 
Me want to play anyway
 
Me dance ANY WAY
 
Me vulnerable anyway
 
Staying open anyway
 
Heart open anyway
 
Open anyway
 
Everyway
 
Everyday
 
This day
 
Right here
 
Right Now
 
Finally
 
At Last…
 
 
 
For my husband David on 1/30/07, and it's just gotten better since then!
