On the edge of a smile
Her life a lies soft apology
Some small gesture to her past
She battles the ideal
Between what she dreams
And what is real.
Her eyes have held no focus
But now sideways
Sweeping glance.
She so desperately wants
(As she has always known)
Soft winds and exotic flowers
To murder time
And her knowing.
She wholly comprehends
The intensity of excess
The inadequacy of persuasion.
And while white knights
Compare visions
With cruel intentions
She awakens to a dark
Translation
Of sexual claustrophobia.

WOW....where have you been hiding this stuff??

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints in our heart and we are never ever the same.

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!
