The Woman I romanticize


The woman I romanticize.
Her abode is not in my mind
She has no place in my heart
Her face is not in my eyes
Her frame is not in my dream.
Who is she then?
Where I found her?
When I met her?
Where is she?
You know it as do I.
She isn’t someplace
She isn’t someone
She isn’t part
She isn’t full
She isn’t love
She isn’t passion
She isn’t dead
She isn’t alive
She’s one I made
In my bid to survive!

    Are you wishing you life away?
    A shadow crutch to crush your limp?
    Life is too short to have a make believe life. (Report) Reply

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
