When I Feel

from Smoke Ghost by Tadpoles



When I feel

I want to touch

When I do

I do too much

When I go

I go too far

What I want

I want more

I'm going to last a lifetime

I'm feeling frail

Dead afraid

Trapped, earthbound

Peace flew away

Arm in a sling

My broken wing

This day is gone

Thistle in my palm

I'm going to last a lifetime

Greet the new day

Feel a new way

Figure time

With math of mine

I glow and flow

I frost the glass

Feel electric

Big and blasting

Hobo a train

I can't fail

Boxcar free

Chug down the rails

Ride on wheels

Learn and yearn

I'm on fire

Feel me burn

I'm going to last a lifetime
