The Elusive Hero


The Elusive Hero

I wait I wait
For the fairytale to begin
Put my life on hold
Keep my breath in
Until he comes
Who he is I do not know
Yet I have waited for him my whole life through
Is it him over there or is it you?
Sometimes I think I glimpse him
Reflected in my lovers eyes
But in the morning he is gone
My elusive intangible hero
Always out of reach
A shadow in my mind
Keeping me restless
Keeping me blue
Looking for you

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
