Ready To Burn

No such thing as a dream catcher,
when the shades are drawn to keep
the light out – I dream on and on

And all that stay too long, like an uninvited
guest or laugh lines we tend to ignore.
I close my eyes and conjure images

To rattle the narcissist I hold so dear.
all my hopes are for calmer days
and loving nights

…oh yes I remain such a romantic

Heart strings tighten, I wear you on my
sleeve. best dress and high heels stretch
for miles in the glow of candle light

Lines and long legs crossed. your image
floats in a blinding haze of a funeral pyre
I am ready to burn…
