prompt image – August 5, 2019

silhouette, a saboteur of my spirit as

I reminisce with a sad and heavy heart

looking at your profile, stern and angular,

hunting for signs of gentleness and goodwill

original feelings blurred and reckless

unto to myself lies the energy of blame

eternal love rewards those who seek it

tears of joy or tears of sadness, no matter

truth is the fortunate stroke of serendipity

embarking on my quest for happiness
