Ah, dastardly Life, to taunt me so,
to dangle paradise so near,
to gift a glimpse of passion's glow
then cause the Muse to disappear.
You opened wide the drapes of hope
and let me gaze on misty dreams,
you took my hand and led me through
the corridors where love-lust gleams.
I felt the soft caress of breath
that out to shadowed hearts beseech,
and lips that spoke of sensual love,
but all were just beyond my reach.

I saw your eyes entreat my own
to follow you and world be damned;
but as I strained my fingertips
to touch you, destiny began
to build a wall of haze and stone,
to swirl the darkness into time.
He built a fence of pales and space
so high and deep, I could not climb.
And so, the sun and moon still shine,
the roses bloom and waters run deep;
but Life has placed beyond my grasp
eternity's balm my soul did seek.

Thnx Joyce...I wish I had your gift for writing like this. I read these works, and say to myself, now why didn't I write it just like this? This piece speaks of thoughts I think constantly. Thoughts of why am I so close, yet so far away, from seeing my life's dream realized? This is very good Joyce, thnx for sharing. May the Lord Jesus bless you and yours, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, stubborn to a fault, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little terified den sister, Barbie
