Let Me Keep

always thought my brain lived in my chest cavity
beating out thoughts
heart child
heart child
heart child
can you feel your thoughts pulse?
stuck between stars and earth
I've always had rolling hills beneath my feet
always wonder whether
I should roll down them
or walk through them
be sensible
or be whimsical
I want to grow wings you see
feel the moon between my fingers
and hold starlight in cupped hands
but be rational
there's a world there, that doesn't know
doesn't know
of all that lurks behind closed books
so be rational, be rational, child
be reasonable
writing, it isn't reasonable
caring so much, oh honey, it isn't profitable
And don't drag your skirt through ocean water
it isn't sensible
be reasonable
be rational
but I can't, not when faced with
flower chains and poetry books
sun light and star bright
first star I see tonight
wish I may, wish I might,
let me keep my whimsy
let me keep my whimsy
sometimes, it's all that keeps me going
my light footing,
gentle wind whisperings
I often think
I'm more than ready to grow old, but growing up
that's another matter
so let me keep my fairytales
let me keep my castles
keep my whimsy
I intend to always be a heart child
feeling thoughts instead of thinking them
Once I fought this
but it this isn't a light head, just a warm soul
So let me always keep a warm soul,
A hearth lit for wandering thought
