A poem for Brenda Mantz

Breathe Long

Breathe long the delicate scent of that secluded desire,
Ravage the torment of past failure hindering advance
Embrace a love burdened with tribulation of mire
Nirvana nestles within support held sway on chance.

Disparity dispatches earthly vision to distant dream
Altered state leaps upon chests empty at source.
Greatness grapples clear sincerity’s force
Masked upon walls of grandeur’s seam.

Against surroundings of bejeweled and hopeful sight
Necessary trappings collide where adoration meets.
Trusting eyes gaze deep into the twinkling night
Zealous being longs for its overdue seat.
