Poetry Pool


It's only castles burning
And you know better than
to let that keep you from
getting what you want.

The sky's on fire too
But with your big umbrella
that doesn't have to mean
it's time to go inside.

C'mon you know
it was answered long ago
And who are we to argue
with so many buried sages?

But you'll still say
it doesn't move you--
the way she cries at night--
She doesn't need your comfort anyway.

After all, it's only castles burning
And I know you've decided
not to let them keep you
from getting what you need.
