Mitchell stood at the bow
Of his own luxury liner
Feeling so small
Compared to the heights
Peal had taken him
Watching her disappear
In the black of the limo
Becoming distant
Beyond the cliffs of
Of the ocean wall

He knew this was not her name
Beautiful all the same

Recalling his childhood
Growing up with “Painted Ladies”
On the “Cherry Farm”
Out in the Navada wasteland

He was pampered and spoiled
Loved and adored
His Mother, the Madam
He knew her private toil

As he grew well in the card games
The tricks of the trade
Paid...him respect
By always leaving him
With a newfound swindle
Under his belt

His heart was golden
His Mother’s love
Was real
Even though they dwelled
Among small time criminals

On her death bed
She decided it was time
He knew who his real father was
He was worth more than a dime
Even though some raised a brow
At her chosen profession
She was reposed
At knowing
Her son came from millions
Though she was unwanting
That her little boy
Be splashed as the ******* Son.

As her secret lover
Would never marry
A tumbleweed
From the desert’s tarry
The sands had many demands
And she met them all
Proudly
Even in death

He couldn’t rest
Until he found a love
To make up
For all the love swept
under the sands as a young man

His new money made no difference
But Pearl surely did
As his heart
Would go insane
Until he learned her real name

Wishing for the new day
To hurry and rise to its highest
He blinked at the thought
Edwardo might not like
The fact
That he desired
to posses his gem
“Best Man Wins”
He coin tossed “heads up”
into the fog
Burning daylight
Landing lucky
As he knew it would

You have such a beautiful heart, sweet friend, thank you for sharing!

   With this one, you gave us further emotional insight to a character, and continued with the crisp imagery that marks your work...Very Good, Regina!

I'm sorry, the deleted word was that of an illegitimate son.

Thank you all for following along my tale spin. I hope to conclude this...as I don't want to go on forever...the ending is near..but I have to go on a trip this weekend and will be away for 4 days...unless I sneak someone's lap top!  

So please don't be disappointed in me if the end hasn't come by then. My plate is full and I know you're all ready for the end by now ~Laugh. Someday..I'll thank you in a much bigger way! Hugs for your patience!

Sincerely,
Regina

It's all in the mind
Except for what's in the heart.
