Ready To Burn

No such thing as a dream catcher
when the shades are drawn
to keep the light out
and all that stays too long
like an uninvited guest
are laugh lines
we tend to ignore
so I close my eyes
and conjure images
to rattle the narcissist
I hold so dear
all hopes for clear days and
loving nights
…oh yes such a romantic
heart strings pulled
I’m wearing you on my sleeve
best dress and high heels
stretch for miles
in candle light
lines crossed and long legs
your image becomes a sweet blur
I’m so ready to burn…
