What You Dream, Earnestly, By Shutting A Friend, Will Not Come True Poem by RIC S. BASTASA


someone shuts you
out temporarily from his
world because he is
writing a poem which
he dreams, must win
him an award that he
really needs to fulfill
his self-esteem as a
writer,

he misses the point of
inspiration, as, and this
i must stress, the source
of poetic inspiration
is always the other,
not the lonely swim
within,

nevertheless, i look
up to the sky, and pray
to all the gods,
i take a walk under
the trees,
to pray to all the
fairies, that he wins
the prize,

but deep within, i am
pretty sure,
he will not make it.
