The Lake House

burnt-out finger tips
still warm and searching
for tomorrow’s answer and
a love affair – like that film,
The Lake House – without letters
and a trash can for romantic
epitaphs written on bad checks,
endorsed, with love.

I’ve spent half my life
afraid but that’s okay
I’ll spend the other
half awake…

and you can’t
break me.
