Wild Flower


Wouldn't trade this fireside chat,
Or You on the balcony, more
Beautiful than Juliet honestly,
Remember the times,
Remember the titans, wished
Took you to the movies, wondered
Why wasn't life more directed, hoped
For a happy ever after.

Fallacy across a horizon,
You got me Gatsby, calling out,
Recognize the grand design,
Sublime desperation,
The course split us up,

Left me second guessing,
That road not taken,
Forsaken the sun,
Class of your own,
You were all that mattered,

But would you believe me-
Contemplating constellations,
Concise condemnation of careers,
Set minor and major ablaze,
Reality realtor reliving next to you,
As my favorite place.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
