Restless Youth – Free Verse Wordle – August 11, 2015

 

Collage 3

“I’m restless. Things are calling me away. My hair is being pulled by the stars again.” -Anais Nin.

Restless was I at fifteen,
the stars did call and hormones too!
The sins of youth,
now rattle down my spine
and chill the cry
inside my brain.
The creek did witness,
over time,
more lover’s trysts
then men may know –
now receded
my love pains are dull,
like an echo
of a distant drum,
just a thread of thought
as I walk in the woods –
of plastered hair
on his sweaty brow.
Ah – if I knew then what I know now,
had only gazed in the mirror
to scry my future,
I would have suffered less
and enjoyed it more –
that long-lost first kiss
on a summer’s morn.
