And inspiration
Is sparce
Varied
But life's divine and endless course
Carries me on it's current
And I go along willingly
Though expression has become so
Empty in it's opulence
I still dream
I still love
I take the good with the bad
And the light with the heavy
I smile when it overtakes me
And frown when it becomes
Dark, no longer
Possessing that dreamlike quality
That qualified it as art
Tearing me apart
Timeless and eloquent
The freedom we pride ourselves on having
Is so tightly controlled
By inhibition and fear
Power and danger are guiding emotions
That rules us on our journey
But so few can be honest
About their presence
And, still feeling the pain of
Unrequited love and
The end of a "timeless" romance
I take the cowards stance
And let them take me
I give too willingly
But I'm honest and forgiving
I'll tell it all when I get there
I never promise, I hardly swear
But no one understand what I say
I say it anyway
In hopes that someday
Someone will hear my call
And find comfort in my voice, my words
And I will be recognized, maybe even
Understood-

Thank you Tim. I've always had the fear that I would become the love-striken teenage cliche in my writing, but I'm starting to feel more confident. You comments help a lot.
