full throttle, an electrical impulse
then a whisper, her name in the dark
capture me, it sighs
and as he awakens
just remains

how many new days, will break
and close, with exits over entrances
both on the same page
each beginning, again
at dawn

will his pockets empty, or fill
with possibility or regret
turn inside out or linger,
inside chance
or desire

how many times, will he flee
with a fist full of dreams
drowning under doubt, suspicion
stifling, resisting the impulse
to just be


  1. Oh, this is excellent. It really speaks to me.


  2. Love it LoVe It LOVE IT. Very expressive, now I look in the mirror and I finally see myself.

  3. Thought you'd like that. Thank you, Cledstone. :)
