I write

for you

As if these words could

Turn circumstances around

Fingers beating down on the keyboard

Making the charm bracelet- you gave me- jingle


In my heart

I believe they could

And so I write

For you


The mind knows nothing

Of what the heart believes

And is forever

The pessimist

Laughing at my folly
