soul mates

Do you ever wish that you could have something, but then realize that it is already yours?


I wish that I could write
With the same zeal and appeal as Van Gough,
Painting with words rather than with pigments


What was his success?
Was it the way that he envisioned his world?
The way that he communicated what he saw?
Certainly mad, but true
Pursing his own gift rather than convention
Grasping spirit rather than context


Oh, can I ever learn to write The Starry Night?
Or pen a haystack blue?
Will I ever be as he?
Just Me?
