No One Can Follow

I have stopped searching for the way,
 the path,
a welcome sign,
and a free entry ticket.
I will no longer be a servant to the map.
My course cannot be plotted
or predicted.
I will swing my shining axe and send my own handcrafted bridges crashing to the bottom
and smile softly as I burn them later to keep the monsters at bay.
Although I am not sure if it is the flames that they fear,
or the sharpness of my chilled eyes shining at them in the dark…
But either way,
no one,
no man, woman or monster,
 can follow you 
if you don’t know where you’re going……

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
