Perceptions Lost (To Wish Impossible Things)

Perceptions Lost

 

To wish impossible things seems my destiny- I sit here in the truck only wishing, letting my mind wander with my desires- Taking me close to things I cannot hold or possess.  Remember how it used to be? With the stars in the sky- they were as real as you and me. Remember how we used to be? Now I am destined only to wish impossible things. And now I cannot call and share with you the delights of my day.  I am left to my own devices, my own quiet prayer. Now I dare not go there. So I carry a little more melancholy in my heart, it seems to have endless capacity for it- Why I do not know… It was your sweetness that filled me with hope to wish impossible things- To dare to be happy.  But all I wish has gone away- The stars are not real- Merely satellites as placeholders. Nothing is real anymore, merely an illusion, just a ruse to break my already vulnerable heart. Please take care with my fragile heart…someone….

About the Author

From Review: "Charlotte Von Woffle Greer is an artist in the truest sense of the word. Tormented, embattled, strong, fearless and fearful. Curious, and full of wonder yet jaded and defeated at times. An artist shares what they feel. A true and brave artist shares what they feel completely as Charlotte does, in these pages." -Erik Johnson
