Nostalgia By Jomboree F. Higgins


Google.com

I cannot build dreams with wooden reality...
the blueprints have suddenly changed,
We're no longer what we used to be.
How can you know how much I hurt
when you will not listen to me?
The ache is deeper than ever I realized
until today,
emptiness has taken over the hot nights;
Our only bond is Suzie-
Suzie of the laughing face and kindergarten enthusiasm.
I want to ask you what happened to forever
and the promises of love,
but i cannot penetrate your walls
to even ask you that.
Are you inside somewhere, John?
Have you learned not to care?
Maybe
i will understand someday
why i feel wooden now, and why
you constructed barricades!
