Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desire can be won. It exists. It is real. It is possible. It is yours.

The wind blowing,
my heart glowing.
No reason to fear,
because you are here.

Just in spirit,
I can hear it.
But it’s only me;
the world cannot see.

My tongue is tied.
I don’t know why.
My mind is tangled;
my thoughts are jangled.

I sit in sun
while you have fun.
I am all alone
as the day does drone.

As one ponders,
my mind wanders.
Waiting for that kiss
that my lips have missed.

Played many times,
I create rhymes
to put to paper
imagined capers.

Top of my mind –
thoughts left behind.
The front of my brain
do memories stain.

Stricken each night;
full of delight.
Dreams are filled with you
and things that you do.

Caboose* hugged tight,
I’m done tonight.
My body drifts to
sweet visions of you.
