    Poem Commentary

    Another reflection from a poem in English class.
    I wrote it about a boy that I like.

    Living In The Body

    I wonder what it's like
    living in the body
    of the person I can't stop thinking about.

    The eyes I want to gaze into.
    the arms I wish to wrap around myself,
    the hair I dream of running my fingers through,
    and the ears I whisper sweet words into.

    I often wonder what it's like
    being him.
    Being the perfection he is.
    Breathing in air
    and breathing out his being.

    Knowing he could have me
    wrapped around his finger
    twirling me,
    bending me,
    doing whatever it is he pleases.

    I watch him
    staring at the fireflies
    that aren't there anymore.
    Stading in an open field
    is that boy
    living in that body.

    "I wonder what it's like living in the body of the person I can't stop thinking about." — the surreal depth of this line would make Andre' Breton gasp in his grave or make Salvador Dali turn it in to a painting.



    Aww. Thanks, Dah. :)

    Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.
