Title: Without Wings
Author: Ki
Category: POTC
Type: Poem,
Rating R
Warnings: none
Summary: This is about Jack. I get offended when people think that he is an idiot drunk. He is complex, intelligent and has integrity, although it is sometimes a little different from what is the norm. I have still not got over him leaving the Pearl...I don't think that he would have done that. Every time I have seen that I have cried...But anyway, this is about Jack.


I am
Perhaps not what you see
Or what you think you see
I am a contradiction
A puzzle

Freedom is my air
The thing I most want
A story that has no end
Dreams lived
But I am awake

I have scars
Ink that I have chosen
Wounds that I have earned
Visible and invisible
Skin and soul

I cannot be who I am not
Dreams I reach for
Horizons I chase
You do not understand me
Because you do not know me

Simple but deep
Lost but grounded
I drink but am not drunk
It serves me to have you think that
Inside I smile

I completely agree with what you say about Jack, Ki.And you have truly captured his essence here in this short poem. It's beautiful, and lovely to read it again.

Now that was a treat and a wonderful and simple (and yet not, like him) description of YOUR Jack, Ki, and how you've opened our eyes (or mine anyway) to what the essence of him truly is, with your writing stories and now this.

I never believed for a second he'd leave the Pearl either, and was gobsmacked at that scene, and that was a crystal moment for me to go, "hang on....who IS this Jack really?"

Really good Ki, really good.

That bit is so powerful and the last verse so encompassing of who he is.

I just love it to pieces.

cheers

Thanks Luna, it makes me smile that you like my Jack. He is the same Jack this one just goes beyond what Disney shows.

The lines that you quoted are my favourite as well, also applying to life, whether you have tattoos or not.
