alex cherneski's poem #6
by alex cherneski
i can sing but not very well
i can tell the truth, and tell a tall tale
i can't live alone, but yet i can
i can't stand pain, but it feels so good
i can understand what needs to be understood.
i can look through you but can't, really
i can love you, but do you love me?
when i'm sad, i don't move
i cry and cry...
when i'm happy i smile through my tattered wings
i am the sparkle in your eyes, but am i forever?
can this life get better, or worse?
are you telling me we'll still be together
even if you say break?
life is like me. complicated.
