    dedicated to 1 who might not believe just how much, or how long...


    you say nothing is impossible
    but I live inside
    a world of improbabilities
    the-rapist
    claims is my private cell
    made of concrete
    excuses so thick
    that I can't reason
    my way out my
    personal hell

    you have dreams
    I can see with my eyes open
    perhaps because I
    dreamed them first,
    before
    your birth
    and now, born in you
    forever is new hope
    that they just might
    come true


    we came close
    we come closer
    with each free-style
    attempt to unravel
    the tangle in the middle
    of our tapestry
    yes, my dear
    I still pearl and weave

    everytime you "speak"
    there goes
    another stitch
    in our heart-shaped fabric

    in my favorite hues
    honey/caramel and
    double dipped chocolate :wink:

    little one
    I may never live that
    impossible dream

    you will

    but it's highly probable
    I will die with my
    heart strings
    knit very tightly
    to yours

    AAA~L

    s

    from the chapter "lower case #5" of my never-to-be-published book of pitfalls :D
