Can I Ask You A Question, Or Two - Poem by Leria Hawkins

Can I Ask You A Question, Or Two
Date: August 14,2013

What is there to say, to know
Before the sun and after
Should I stay or should I go
When the sky above has shattered
Can I catch the waning night
Before the stars escape me
Can I hold onto their light
And let the passion shape me
I hear the bells and whistles
And I see the pot of gold
But it is just illusion
To have, but not to hold
How can I defend it
When I don’t know what it is
How can I pretend
As I stumble in the mist
Temptation is the test
That binds my heart in chains
I try to do my very best
But my efforts are in vain
One smile and I am broken
Arms wide to risk it all
Then next I am forsaken
Left reeling from the fall
There simply is no promise
Not a single hope to hold
There is no magic potion
To turn ashes into gold
