why am i not you
chloee

i see the blades of grass dance
 1
and i know not of the wind
 2
so in my mind they dance for me
 3
and i begin to dance for them
 4
i see the water in the ocean reaching out for me
 5
knowing not of logic i can clearly hear it
 6
sing in breeze
 7
and i understand the language used
 8
and means for which it speaks
 9
 
 
i sing back to it
 10
in a higher pitch
 11
and a rhythmic rhyme
 12
and then i take off all my clothes
 13
and give them to the tide
 14
 
 
i see my naked body glowing white
 15
under the moon
 16
and i know not of the ego
 17
but i smile like i do
 18
if you can see me now, what would you think?
 19
why am i nude?
 20
why am i dancing?
 21
singing?
 22
why am i not
 23
you?
