    A Taste of Joy

    I confess my pain
    …Profess my love of the game (wordplay)
    That comes with my
    Ev’ryday
    As
    I
    Abstain
    My crying(s)

    There was a time

    …A time when
    Songs were sung
    About the breathe of love’s arm
    And the warmth of joy’s embrace
    But fast-paced hearts
    And disenchanted minds
    Have left us
    sTaRvEd
    For those times

    Mentally…

    I live in the underbrush
    Of a lust-filled husk
    Wallowing in joy’s embrace

    I taste its essence EV’RYday
    Savor the flavor of
    In-Ti-Ma-Cy
    …The feel of In-de-cen-cy
    That nature bRiNgS to me

    Have you not tasted it?

    Did you not sip from the proverbial cup
    That struck DeSiRe deep in your soul
    Do you not know…
    The secret shadows of long ago

    I have wished upon the stars Heaven presents us

    I have traveled the maze from shattered heart to renewed trust

    Never once did I “cuss”

    I have known Joy
