i want more: Poem

Maybe it's easy to step over stones

avoid crushing flowers as you walk all alone

to look quickly behind you and see if you’ve left a mess

check for muddy footprints that are hard to miss

walk along the curb

dangerously close to the edge

feel a car fly by

a smile tugging at the lips

to make it to a light

that tells you when to move

watch closely knowing these are the rules

maybe close your eyes as you pick up the pace

trust the wind as it whips harshly at your face

twirl in a tight circle because you finally have the chance

trip on the pavement

but frown at a stranger as they offer you a hand

we move in a way no one understands
