White Horses

Horse in space, in circle light. Mirror on the planet Earth. Animal concept, Winter effect and blue color.

Where do people get off

thinking they’re better – better thanย 

who is what I wanna know.ย 

I never learned to play the game.

So I’ll stand this one out, and move on.

My demons playing their own game.

They found her sleeping in secret

with me chasing my tail – running for the sun.

They want her to join the fun

but she knows it’s not true.

They like to play make believe –

jousting with my dreams for sport.

Horse in space, in circle light. Mirror on the planet Earth. Animal concept.

Standing here, I feel like Red Riding Hood

wanting to ask the lady beside me

why her nose is so damn high.

What does she see up there?

I wanna ask the man in front

why he seems to think my face

traveled South for the winter.

Maybe he knows something I don’t.

I never learned to play the game,

so I’ll stand this one out.

And just as well – too manyย 

white horses on the board already.

Horse in space, in circle light. Mirror on the planet Earth. Animal concept, Sepia and light Golden color.

  1. I love what you did here:

    “wanting to ask the lady beside me

    why her nose is so damn high.

    What does she see up there?

    I wanna ask the man in front

    why he seems to think my face

    traveled South for the winter.

    Maybe he knows something I donโ€™t.”

    Best part of it for me, the core of the poem. Nice, very nice.
