If I Close My Eyes Forever Revised
Mile Marker MCCXXI
Word Acrostic/Blank Sonnet
Heaven declaring agreement with hell,
is confrontation the best policy?
In troubled water hope struggles to float,
the problem with one beginning with two. . .
Palm branches burning reward honesty,
of promised future now nothing to claim.
My situation denied paradise,
hand of fate choosing death's comforting arms:
And now condolence is all that remains,
it's poison writing tomorrow's first page.
Waiting for sunrise since love's final breath,
here in the darkness watching memory.
for a while longer both travel alone,
you and I knowing circles never end.
