"Only Wish"

by Jeph Johnson


Damned creativity!
I toss up my hands in vain-
For my inspiration is gone...long gone
and with my last I've feigned.
Must I turn my practice inward?
For unattained my quest
to fulfill endearment towards
fairness manifest.
Rest assured my voyage
more than thrice has ran its course
and more than twentyfold my passion
could not find its source.
When the end has found me
blankly staring at a wall
you may imagine my thoughts a muse,
But there is none to recall.
For when time finally hits me
and I fall prey to nothingness,
remember that my only wish
was for someone to caress...
