I no longer want

to write

about a heart’s desire

that burns through

my hands

my chest

as the noon time sun

dips towards the horizon.

I no longer want

a penny for your thoughts

verdigris and copper

all the reasons

why your life

isn’t perfect.

I want to cast out

all my demons

in the name of a Spirit

that will fight my battles

and defeat the


I want to run into

the open waves that rush

along the shore line

crashing into every thought

and desire

I will ever have.

For when will this

lonely traveler

find peace?
