Burning Man

Further down a slow, sad spiral I sought my 
youth in Truth's denial- contrary to fact, the 
hardest impact, the trek would take me 
ten-million miles! My strength depleted, my 
quest completed, I rest at last for a little 
while... 
Just give me grief beyond belief of which I 
may find no relief for soon I will tire with 
the wish to expire- Let the fire burn bright, 
yet brief!

    I added back the stanza you liked. It just vexed me at the time. I also re-titled the poem to "Wonder and Dismay," which works better for me than Patterns and Prose. Thanks for your encouragement and suggestions.

    Glad to hear you went back to your original stanza, Mark. I understand completely that feeling of being vexed and stuck. You can definitely count me a fan of your work and I look forward to reading more :)

    Archaic. I hear echoes of rhyme within the poem- it taste to me like a scrambled egg; whipped and mixed to create an omelette. Great one again from Rhyme Master. Friend, JM
