Underground (O.S.I.)

Hi all,

Here is my poem for O.S.I. This week's theme is underground.

If these feelings escape the corridor of my soul
And race along the staircase of my bones
Pry away the keys of my heart
And leap from the window of my mouth
Words may escape that I cannot take back
Though I may hide them in the black
Between the laughter of flattering lips
May they flutter and lock themselves in darkness

Okay, W.G, you write soooo beautifully. Your words turn into a romantic message seeminingly so easy and naturally. I'm envious.
BTW, my picture is one I took in the 'Moscow (Russia) Metro.' It had art on some of the walls and statues all around.

How many times I have felt this way regarding words I have said and regretted.

Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day and leaving a comment. It was nice to "meet" you. :)
