Flight of Infatuation

A kite,
      A red balloon,
chasing folly to the moon,
something new and shiny
with I love you there in gold,
and I feel old
           and worn,
a dark pinata torn
and emptied,
by this world.................

and there it is...............
Loves' shadow,
caught and tethered
in the branches of
neglect,
and I reflect while
someone prays,

My struggle's cost?
a wondering heart released,
reaching back to cast
a distant "why?",

Weighing myself in
lonely mirrors,
I search heaven..............
and call
you.
