I Would Leave No Breadcrumbs In The Alleyway


I have been down there with you and high at least as much the eagle’s soar.
Sometimes, somewhere nowhere that guides me to you;
Sometimes like a dragon fly prancing around your toes
And at times it seemed we’re inches from a thousand ocean’s roar…

…and I ‘v been deep inside of you, so deep I could see
Nothing but your eyes that played a game with mine
And then I have kissed your thighs in a certain awkward shame
But the deeper I went I felt so strongly that I had left
Something a lot like life at your eyes and lips…

By now you know most of my stories –
The ones that are told from the view point of a fence.
I haven’t told but I would like you to know
And think that when the game was over and when everyone left
I ran into the field and dropped and rolled on the grounds.

Mamma, I’m a tiny, little, elfin bit of slow because
I’ve had an awful lot of time to do with myself.
Yes, but with every cell I have tried to be in your heart and mind and soul.
I have tried all that I have been taught…but I have never let the world’s ways back me off an inch from you.

However,
From this junction I can’t see where the highways are.
They’re too darned high and I am not quite the hitchhiker
And so, I’m trying every alley-way that shows any promise.
This is one such alley I have fancied upon and I dare say,
I’m hopeful a lot that it would reach a dead end and I would hit
The walls of your heart that smiles at the door on the wall,
Across the ruby floor.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
