Made up

there is this image I can’t live up to
the one in their mind’s eye
and mine
there is this misunderstanding of regret
that clouds inner vision
and dampens the fire
Pride is one thing
I think I’ve got it right
I’m going backward
farther
than I thought I would, somehow…

  1. Love your new visual posts; I see you’re having lots of fun with your cam! Read your poem in Fertile field about music — so true. In lieu of counting sheep, I almost inevitably tap my feet to a song in my head until I fall asleep every night. I’d be a sleepless zombie without it.

    Take care,
