By: Robert Anderson

shadows aggravate

my heart,

love seems so far away --

so far, so far

and i am lost

beneath the blue veil

of my dreams

i'll linger awhile,

torn, lost without


i never actually knew yet

fantasied of


no matter how

elegance no longer laces

through all i once held near

i'll wander through and search

for you

'til breath becomes the chill

the air accumulates through

its pale frigidness and

tears fall while

memories loom

i'll sit here and watch

the craving earth


the fragmented rain

and want more

to escape

my very breath of life

ever... and again

Robert Anderson

Daily Quote: The jump is so frightening between where I am and where I want to be.
Because of all I may become, I will close my eyes and leap.
- Mary Anne Radmacher
