"... How dreary to be somebody-- How public like a frog;
To tell one's name; the livelong June-- To an admiring bog"
-Emily Dickinson


A shimmer
A sparkle
A twinkle...

Gone.

Run to chase it,
the wind in your hair.
Once was found,
now is lost...

Gone.

But always run to chase it.

Yes, my earlier poems were much shorter than the ones I tend to write now. But every once in a while I try to keep it simple... Thanks for reading :)

Very true...I'll try that in my future poems. But to me poetry is all about finding your own meaning, so I don't want to give to much away.

Beautiful yet an unclear meaning. Try clarifying what you mean to evoke more emotion and response from your reader, everyone loves a poem they can easily relate to a personal experience, especially if it's powerful.

I'm mostly talking about my lost dreams that people put down all the time...but I still run to chase them.
