    "Lilt of the Pink Poppy" Small delicate petals

    stretching up To swing from a chandelier of stars. Although misunderstood from conception, Alive as a pink poppy with all my scars! A wildflower doesn't grow in every garden. Creation of prose, due to a pardon. Soul is not about if words rhyme; My blooms kiss the heavens...

    I can't afford her, 'though my heart,

    Rich with desire and passion, bleeds To fill the coffer of my soul; Her value, all this wealth, exceeds... But I will not live beyond my means, Her fondness I can cover; I'd rather keep her as a friend... Than lose her as a lover.
