My advice, whenever you play with words,
understand there is a weight thrown.
And maybe your vision is such
that the message is a little anemic
for one to survive on.
Those big and lofty words of yours,
most typically get lost because
the story that you want us to feel
is truly impossible for us to absorb.
Unless of course, you’re all mythical
in that character realm where
translucent waves peek in and
metaphorically touch us all.
In my case, and with all these words
I promised a friend with a diagnosis
that she’d have dragonfly Poetry
to help her lose,
track of time. Just in case
I created this fictional girl of love
one that is blended from
all the experiences in my life.
The trick in this
little craft of ours
is to stay true to our words.
Simply look up at the sky
and tell us how
it moves the love you hold inside.
Beautiful you, the diagnosed one
we spoke last night
and just because
you’re tired and have no real appetite,
it doesn’t mean,
you’re allowed to skip a meal.
I promised you
all My words,
as long as you
you would fight.
