Before the Breaking Dawn

The fire that may burn some day
Captures the mind
Leaves me stepping slightly to the side
To see a different perspective
A different view
Of who I am
What I stand to lose
If it is indeed a fire that is so bright
Then why has it a delicacy tonight
Passion would just not be right
It is something held respective
Something that I choose
Even if in the past I sang those blues
So I ponder
And in pondering the wonder is amazing
To be me right now
Right here
These feelings so frail
Is so fascinating
That I have to remember my feet are on the ground
Take a good look around
And realize I remain alone
I vow to take that trip to that stone
And come clean my feelings decades pent
So I may finally truly love
Before the breaking of dawn
Has gone

    † Once More We Find These Depths In Your Words Thus Spoken, Dear Precious Lucinda Price ˜ Tis Almost Troubling Amid Some Slight Measure ? Tasting For Lack There Of These Shards In Broken Glass Ever Present Within A World Which Produces An Endless Sea Reflecting Shattered Hearts As Dreams ? Not That This Be Yourself Yet Everywhere We Turn Tears Filling Eyes Overflowing Precious Lives; Trodden ? Beautiful Of Bittersweet Painting And I Am Well, Thank You ˜ Love, John

    For half a second, I thought this was a poem about one of those weird "Twilight" books. Thankfully, it wasn't. =) There is a lot of powerful self-reflection in your lines. The need for clarity & freedom are at its peak. Excellent job!
