If Looking Now

If in a quiet moment,

we might see the future

to better understand the why

the way we

do seem to count on having solace

with our dreams.

 

Could when creating a world

in illusion,

might we choose the good guy,

the one that always

finds a way,

discovers there is a positive end.

 

I glanced where I always do,

hopeful,

imaginative certain with a smile

for it is impossible

to imagine a lost elegance

in the silence of her eyes.

 

Will she ever really understand this yearn

is well beyond the conscious nature of need.
