I Am A Thought

Poem By Anji Carter

I am a thought.
A creation of your inmost soul.
A child of your brain
Your concepts were my mould.
You formed me with ideas
And dreams a hundred-fold.
Through your eyes it was
I learnt the things that others know
They have been simply told.
I am a part, a portion small,
A fragment of your dreams.
I'm what you say with spoken word
And sometimes what you mean.
I am illusion, fact and fiction, moulded into one.
And this most scalding thought of all
Without you
I am none!

No matter how far you go from me in this life -
You began with me.
My breaths gave you your first taste of air,
My heart pumped my blood into your veins

Sometimes my mind can feel so strange,
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',
His minuscule Lolita.
