Poem -

(say a prayer for me)

(say a prayer for me)

shameless

whistle in the teeth

silver fickle heat

thunder

ice put on the shelf

wanting whomever else

tasteless

gulp until you’re done

treat it as all fun

whatever

tonight I will dream

forget the unreal scene

questionless

accept it as it comes

release each thought gun

trivial 

I laugh you laugh I 

smile smirk scatter stride

empty 

where are the thrills? 

cheap! cheap! lost stills. 

reaching 

there is the moon bright

wholesome, glittering night

steady 

soles grip the tarmac 

cold lips restrained back 

pray 

every moment keenly won

is broken when it’s done

Hey BIANCA!!... ok ...I'll say a prayer for you....... but....... this write is VERY enigmatically delivered ...so the prayer will be wide .......sounds like you're caught up in something VERY intense,....... and this...... your confession........ is begging for understanding....... the writing is VERY powerful....... and skilled in its poetic rhyme scheme...... and well conceived rhythm and timing....... ALL STARS....... well done....... and ......WELCOME to COSMO .......LOVE and ROCKETS!!......T xo. 😉✳✴☀
