  13.     

THe burning dream

My dream is a flame
Flickering through the night
Slowly melting away
The realities of my mind

My hidden desires
Cast shadows on the wall
As I watch myself live
The life I never had

The silent flame dies
As the sun begins to rise
And I am left watching
The world become real

The dream is gone
And I am here
Watching it fade
Like a wisp of smoke in the air

  14.     

The color of my life

I remember…
Her pouty red lips, when she wouldn’t get her way
The blush in her cheeks when her hand grazed mine
The freshly picked hibiscus that clung in her hair
And the mosquito bite that she wouldn’t stop scratching

The red and white striped hat
Atop the cat of the book we used to read
The little red shoes she wore for Halloween
And the six little flames flickering on her birthday cake

The color of my young fingertips
When she squeezed my hand in hers
As the spots of blood leaked from her fallen knee
Flushing her tear stricken cheeks red

The color of the first Valentine card I gave to her
And the color of the last rose, I almost gave to her

The color of the burning sky
As we both silently waited for our parents to come
The bright red brake lights of her parent’s car
Leaving the school and me behind

The color of the balloon that slipped out of her hand
And floated out into the eternal blue sky
I remember… the red in my life

The Journal

Bold cursive silver letters
Etched onto a plain black cover
Labeling what I am
But not who I am

I sometimes just sit down
And clumsily flip through the pages
Smiling to myself on one page
And breaking my heart on the next

My friends are old photographs
Safely tucked between the pages
Guarding my scribbled down memories
From times forgetful spell

The love of my life is a bad poem
Quickly scratched out across the page
So many little messy wishes
That was never meant to be

As my eyes graze across my stained memories
I wish I could just scratch out
All of my regretful mistakes
But even then, the words would still remain

I am just a sad little character
Caught up in my own little plot
Living each page to the next
Until “The End”

  16.     

The Life We Lived

The life we lived
And the lives we wanted
Are all but footprints
In the ever shifting sands

The lives we wanted
Are but mere fairytales
Woven from the threads
Of our wishful imaginations

While that self defining moment
Has long since passed
And whether by fate or coincidence
We have chosen the lesser

And like all lives
That came and are to come
Will be lived and forgotten
Like footprints in the sand
 
Jeffrey Lee
