Reaching For Heaven
and post notes and photos about your poem like Emile Pinet.
Have you ever out run the wind
propelled by the rays of the sun?
And felt magic embrace your heart
conjuring hope where there was none?
Embellished by lost innocence
fantasies overlook the truth.
And sweep aside reality
with the sheer impetus of youth.
Smitten by unrequited love
you can’t conceal rejection’s pain.
For like smoke reaching for heaven
all of your dreams were launched in vain.
Your surroundings seem surreal
at the moment of love’s demise.
And pooling deep within your heart
teardrops trickle from weeping eyes.
You're emotionally empty
acquiescing to love's defeat.
And it is hard to imagine
ever feeling so incomplete.
