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.

With moon shining bright,
I stare up at the sky.
Confused, befuddled, and wondering why.

Why I can’t do it,
though there’s nothing to fear.
Only my heart jumping, with you so near.

With the slightest touch,
my heart begins racing.
My face grows warm and my mind starts spacing.

Such a simple task,
and yet I hesitate,
thinking you may not be ready; to wait.

Internal struggles
prevent me from acting,
though when you’re not here, it’s love songs I sing.

Just having left you,
I already feel lost,
hoping these poems get my point across.

On my roof I sit,
staring up at the sky.
Confused, befuddled, and wondering why.
