Believe


The people who
make believe
make us believe
the world
is not lost
and have found
an answer
in the dark recesses
of the darkest corner
of the soul.
A story can go
either way
until
tumbling waves and
grumbling noises
from an imaginary place
are whisked away
in a flash
taking with them
precious things.
There are people
who's outward urge
is to express dismay
at the loss
of all good things
and others
who would
make us believe
they make believe
that the word
was not lost
and the answer
is always
in front of you
when you need it most

Two more so tenderly complete:
