Poem Hunter
JA John Allen (2/26/83 / New Yawk)


i wish so intensely

that after an hour or two

my hopes are as vapid

as the murmurs of a child

pretending, closing his eyes

above smoldering birthday candles

pretending and smoldering, another gem here
I love this piece. The wishing to believe in a wish. Lovely, thank you.
Wonderful, succint piece. Beautiful imagery and the expression of a pause between each line seems to illustrate an intyake of breath. Demanding the reader ponders each line. I like it when the writer demands effort from the reader. That shows confidence and strength.
