    pictures of my youth
    i see the mirror
    envision my dreams
    colors of reality
    deeper and sharper than
    what i actually see
    awake and breathe
    a prayer to be
    to be i pray
    just to be me
    a stair
    my youth is fleeing me
    i'm crippled chasing
    my reams with a stick
    dreams thick as summer flies
    i swat and swaatt with a stick
    molasses and glue at the tip
    casually i trip
    but my previous ease to continue
    is weighted down
    heavily
    like gravity pulling at
    lover's lips.

    Reminds me of what my grandmother used to say, if you live long enough, you're going to get old. Thinking of what used to be, and knowing what is creeping up on you. I liked the way you posed this.

    I love the rhythm and imagery in this peace...
    especially the part about swatting at dreams
    and the gravity of a lovers lip...hmmm, deep

    Nice flow...
