Getting rid of old baggage...

Pipe Dream


 


 


The angel in black is waiting on the line


What she wants from me is a puzzle


Never pieced it together in all this time


No matter how Iíve hustled


Lost I turned back to my pipe dream


To look at how hope was torn


For how do you capture a dream


Vanishing right after it is born


The desire barely carried me through


Bad choices and heartache


Clinging only by a thread or two


Grasping for what it would take


To guide me back to what is true


The angel in black no longer waits


With her I am inescapably through

Liz,

I love this one. It shows how you've seen mostly hard times & had to give up your dreams because of it. What I love is the fresh, positive outlook towards the end of this piece. Since I wrote my first book, so many have told me their shoulda, coulda, woulda's. I can't help but tilt my head and look at them as though bewildered. No one should stop working toward their goals until their heart stops beating. It's never too late to turn things around and reach for the stars. I also see another meaning in this one; a recent battle being won with health or a personal situation. This poem is so inspirational, and I love the imagery and meaning. This one goes in my library, Liz!

Poignant and well described. My mother and sister both committed suicide so I know a little about bi-polar disorder. My "White Rosebud" is about depression. I'd like to hear what you think about it.

Good imagery to show the strong will and knowledge that makes you stay away from what you identified as dark and destructive.
Bad choice... heartache... these words sound sadly familiar.
