    "How the west was won" 8-24-08

    I'm knock,knock,knocking on heavens door
    but no one answers
    there's no one home

    So I slip a note in the box........it reads.....
    "I dont know how to tell you
    that there's a fire in my heart
    but not much left to burn
    I long to run away
    but I've nowhere left to turn

    Every time I close my eyes I see you
    but your eyes,
    they always look right through me
    I guess now I can see,
    thats the way it's got to be

    I say,"it doesn't matter all that much"
    as I stand outside myself and cry
    because I've learned to run so fast
    that the hurt cant catch me.....and soon.....
    I'll be past the point of even caring anymore

    Running west.......
    as the sun runs from me.

    What a haunting tale of loneliness and desire. Like the fictional Rhett Butler, frustration erases the latter, if not the former.



    now if I could only find a publisher interested in my stuff and the transformative tale they tell of my time I spent

    When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

    John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
