A poem by me

Soft-pedal
  1. Precious ink
  2. pressed to my chest wears
  3. as briefly as the Sunday paper
  4. a butterfly's wing I carry.
  5. From this to that, chasing a glimpse
  6. far away dream from a far away "one"
  7. unmarred
  8. Weary of this metaphysical exercise
  9. cease to have been
  10. I try, I try, to be.
  11. I am!
