What is it that drives you
To wander those crazy streets,
where light stops shining and walkways
seem so hard, so narrow.
Let me show you where the light falls.
Let me be most of who you are
inside those chasms that shrink
from reach and touch.
Let me find where I think
you are hidden – deep and alone,
somewhere forbidden –
almost hesitant to face a day.
Where are you now with arms folded
and tired inside?
Still walking with no limits in mind,
or stop signs along your empty roads
or shelter from frosted fields?
You’re too cold and proud
to find a place to sit, too angry
to find a corner to nestle.
Let me show you the nearest
let me take the weight of so far away,
and find a way through those bricked
up walls you bang your head against.
Don’t wander alone through sprawling
notions and cobwebs.
Let me be there with you for just a moment,
introvert and quiet, free from eyes
and prying assumptions.
Let me find you somewhere inside,
somewhere near not deep and hidden,
and nowhere forbidden.
Don’t hide away…with me there. Let me.
