The Road to No Where
My past has taken hostage of me.
Turning life around 180 degrees. 
The revolving doors are thrown into reverse.
Like a ticker tape parade of uninvited mirth.
 For on the backside of that neglected road.
I skip over many hearts not willing to know.
 Being young and free and I just didnít care.
About loveís demands from other's to share.
 My heart was entwined within a barb wire fence.
Protection from pain was the first line of defense.
Then like a forest in need of rain for many years.
Lightning struck twice to return again the tears. 
For a fine line always separated you and me.
I revisited that moment when I first met thee.
 But that dormant dream I always secretly cherished.
In the midst of that roaring fire it all finally perished.
 Ashes to ashes one day I will go.
Never to look back is all I know.
On that day I will become a sandman.
For the dream just died in poetry land.



"A Hollywood Ending"
I will exit the shores again as a sandman.
For the dreams will live on in poetry land. 



Author's Notes:
What lives inside is your get up and go.
The flame isnít fuel by wealth from gold.

It is  clear that the first was set within emotion

and the second examined a frail devotion

yet both have their merits

                                for understanding relations.

WOW Dan! Intensely and profoundly personal, put forth in such a way as to mean so much to so many. Stunningly beautiful!

A profound look at our conceptions and misconceptions developing in the fullness of time -- as you say wealth is not measured in gold... As always you provide us not only a superbly crafted write but a topic which forces us to cogitate in earnest -- quality and depth here -- thank you for sharing...

A mature poet's statement about the changes that happen with the passage of time.  Personal and meaningful.  Intriguing and insightful.  --David
