Because I'm Too Busy

Mon, 08/05/2013 - 14:01 -- kamrynk



I want to sit outside again 

in overgrown grass 

popping the heads off dandelions 

and running away from bees 


walk around on the dark beach 

sand clinging to my ankles 

a moon the only flashlight I need 


swim so much I can feel the waves  

sloshing through my dreams 

carrying up the thoughts 

I left in the sea 


run through the playground 

tripping on shoelaces 

I haven't learned to tie 

and let ice cream heal 

the bruises on my knees
