Escape From Reality

Poem By Anji Carter

The star you see on high,
And strive to pluck it from the sky,
Is not so far away as it may seem.
It's not a dream.
When an angel, caught midstream in flight,
Catches with wisdom still, an inner sight,
Of what may seem to other eyes, not to be there.
Then only you and I will know, and care.

A singer brings you music for your soul.
Ambitious men make power seem a goal.
A poet brings you words to charm your ears,
And tells you all about her dreams, your fears.
An artist takes the music and the strength,
The words that give the sentences their length.
The dreams you've dreamt, and couldn't quite describe,
And on a canvas sets them for your eyes.

You began with me.
My breaths gave you your first taste of air,
My heart pumped my blood into your veins

An endless teeming mountain range.
A snow of thoughts, falling swift,
Into chasms, into drifts.

I'Ve Learnt How To Walk In The Sunshine

I've learned how to walk in the sunshine,
There's plenty for any who try.
The curtains are open, it's daytime,
There's not much to see in the night.


These strange confused contusions, are they a part of me?
And if they are, then why are they?
I have a mind that runs at tangents, tying itself in knots,
It's always getting lost.

Mercury Is The Moment

Will I be drawn by what I knew before?
Life is a whirlpool, I am very small.
Dreams are like clouds, evaporate too soon.
They carry thoughts and aspirations,

Sweet Baby Sugar-Lips

Sweet baby 'Sugar Lips',
His minuscule Lolita.
Coaxing kisses,
