I will


A dream come true is not necessarily a reality that lasts.

Coffee and words


Even my coffee needs a pep talk,

For I feel no relief when the 
caffeine kicks in.

I know the tools
Time heals;
Not all wounds
Are bad memories to kill.

Yet I go to war defeated
Escape in the world of dreams,
Only to wake up even more

Time heals, they say, but how
much time  when it seems 

Switched off the router today,
Waited a few seconds
Maybe my energy will start

Not yet,
Dear friend.

Be patient,
The sun has not set.

My coffee just kicked in, and I can 
still write a poem.
