    umbrage

    i still want to be a superhero
    saving lives and flying over the city
    but like an ailing troubadour
    pulliing my pain across the floor
    i retreat to the comfort of pillows and covers
    and dream of fighting monsters and lovers

    i still want to be a rock star
    beautiful women watch me playing guitar
    but something has blocked the lights
    and the winter hours have ruined my nights
    it's within this dark that the truth comes about
    wasting time made my youth run out.

    This really hit home with me, retreating to pillows and covers has been something I have done often in the process of life.

    Too true; wasted time pining to be that which we can never be. Excellen write, first words to last line. Thanks for drawing us into your world. you might like "Hero", though not nearly as profound as this work.

    Good read. Darlin', you are way to YOUNG to think it is Too Late. True, somethings we have to start early in life but we learn everyday and you can still be a super star. From your poems, I know you can express yourself, your deep feelings. Use this gift. Voluteer. If you can reach but one soul you are a super star. I have faith in you.

    ya know something, you are right. it is never too late to be a superstar. when i wrote this dark poem last year i thought time had run out. i feel that starting at my age would be impossible. it wasn't, i came through it just fine. thanks for you time, most appreciated.

    Poetry is what is lost in translation.
