No path of vines
even if they're covered by thorns,
can keep me from spending
my life with you.

No snowy roads,
though slick with ice,
can keep from coming
home to you.

No stampede of charging rhinos,
No line of stand-still traffic,
No fires or flood
can keep me away
from being with you.

For even if there is not a way
there is a heart set on fire,
needing to burn
but only with your fuel.

So may the sky come to life
with the light of desire,

I'm coming home.
Full Title: Where There is no Path, Burn One.


You are about two feet away from me
and still
it sometimes feel
like light years.

I really enjoyed the feeling I got from this piece. A few lines lost your flow a bit but it picked back up quickly. Great work.

If there are thorny vines in the way, can a Snorlax eat them? Hehe.

Sorry that your work caused you to go away for a bit - we'll be together again! Then we can tackle that obstacle course... *grin*
