I have endured innumerable hours in silent animal pain for you to appear like magic. I have stupidly tried to find you in others who wait desperately for fate to strike. Nature is the only form I admire. It created you and your beautiful woman form and thoughts. Like me, you are the Earth's child. Like me, you search endlessly. It is not a matter of contentment. Let others create their own hell. We are already in hell, forced to never meet, never speak. On cold, smoke scented mornings, I walk and imagine you, it is all I can do. I have been shunned for my views, my intelligence, my fury and my poverty. Oppression and apathy is all I receive. Search for me as I search for you, through the decadent failures we live in. Write as I write, so I will never relent. We burn like thermite, vaporizing steel and allowing nothing near. Yet we'd flow into each other. I see your star burn furiously light years away. The only evidence of your existence. I don't want to be here anymore. I want to warm myself by your fire, learn from your unique woman
perspective. Listen to the intelligence from your
beautiful woman mouth. I want to walk by your side
when we both succeed and do what I can to protect you. I want to transcend this dimension and dance with you over the ruins, to sit quietly with you because you know the word peace. I want. It is awful that we do this to ourselves, but it is the only fuel afforded us to forget our failures and journey endlessly on, hoping for that spontaneous reaction or luck to finally bind us. I wait for you endlessly.

Lyle, what you want a lot of us want and seek. A very good explanation of how we feel.
If you have a chance please stop by and read about the two children kidnapped by their Father who has also slain his girlfriend. We need your prayers and and any other help you can offer us. From Linda Hill and Bill
Murray. Thank you
