Torn...Torn between comfort and the familiar
Tempted by the unknown
The beasts inside my chest--
Loyalty and betrayal
And the inability to accept
That only one will win…
Paper WishesIf only I could fly on paper crane wings.
I fold my wishes silently by lamplight
And keep them in a jar;
While in the present, I fool myself
With the lack of your understanding,
Your petulant mockery of my superstitions
And my silly beliefs and quirks.
You don’t believe in 'nonsense'
Things like ghosts or souls or fairy-folk,
To you there is no magic in anything--only monetary value.
Your lack of empathy crumbles my muse,
The buds of my creativity withering,
Compassion wandering along with your eyes.
My novelty has worn away, I’m no longer new to you
Eroded. somehow worn out a little by life.
Fate will roll the dice and read the cards and spin the wheel
Though the future may see you in arms that are not mine
And find another in my heart.
Keep in Touch!
