# # Penance For A Dream


Is it worth it….waiting

Knowing I will never find him

To have you kiss my blistered feet

Is it worth the long trip


To have you find me instead of him

To have you rescue me from his whims

To have you save me

From certain death for want of him


Oh muse!

Must you punish me too!
