Barefoot

 

You swap
Your socks
For your shoes
You swap 
Your shoes 
For the pavement
You move 
Your heart
To your 
Sleeve
To the gutter
To the stars
You walk
On egg shells
Tiptoe
Through the 
Roses
Balance 
On the thorns
Pretend
The spikes
Are a 
Pivotal change
In your life
You do
What you
Have to do
And sometimes 
You make 
Excuses
Sometimes 
You lay
The blame
Sometimes you 
Throw your stones
At your own
World 
Of glass
And when 
The pathway
Spins patterns
In your mind
You throw 
Everything 
Out and in
Retching and 
Rushing
And thinking
It's okay
And maybe 
It is
Or it was
But your head 
It spins
Along 
With the earth
And pretending
You're an entity
Separate 
From the whole
Is dancing on ice
That hasn't 
Yet frozen
If your feet 
Are wet 
Step out 
Of the puddle
And don't blame
The world
For the holes
In
Your 
Soul
