Perceptions Lost (To Wish Impossible Things)
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….
