Stardust Road

“Stardust Road.” "Soft defense is driven by my thoughts, I vanish away into yesterday’s scenic road, Set the mood among the dark clouds, Wish I could go back to the night, of fourteen and cold. Tell me not to look up and cover myself with the world. Sorry I could not stay, One too many excuses & lies, To where they never fixed themselves; I could not handle the air, I had to breathe right the cold nights that followed. I stood as one in love, under the starry sky… Young and alone, I left the never-ending vindictive feeling. The dust slept every reason inside my soul. I travel the world, snoozing with the magic of the sand. Stars that echo and drop twinkles to my walking toes. The horizon was my blanket and shield Where the light and night I wore, Accelerating, escaping no more justification! "Oceans of excuses sailed through my soul, Heartbroken, but in love with defiance toward the stardust novelty. With a sigh! I hesitate not to look back, Somewhere the ages turn to rust: Old and grey, all alone, The leaves I stepped on then are trample and gone. One day I shall return for the proper goodbye. For now, I must travel down this lonely road silently. Slowly my heart will heal itself, nurturing the frozen sleet away. Releasing the 14-year old girl at last, In a body a mind and soul, Confronting her with an, I BELONG HELLO!” By;PD

This is delightful - so very well written, and has a great flow and rhythm to it. All in all, just a really pleasant piece, and so tidily done. I really liked this one.

I love how you write with so much emotion. Love has never left your heart even when you were 14. I know this because I can feel it in your poetry. The only thing I can't do, is see it in your eyes and your smile in person. Oh, how I wish I could.....Hugs....Luv....Roger

You seem to be releasing your "Inner Child" in this poem - which is all to the good. Yes, I am a baseball fan - I like the NY Mets and the minor league team - the Brookllyn Cyclones. Do you and yours go to games in Houston - to minor league games? Peace & Love Matthew Anish
