Steven and Me
2003 Jennifer Lyon

I hear Steven ask
"How soon is now?"
Words that can carry
Meanings as wide as a sea
But in the end
Trumpets a single understanding
A time where i will never wonder
Question, Dream
Or grow sick in jealousy
Of the diseased pair
(An Inamorato)
Or bound with a solicitous mind
So hope is all that will swaddle me
Till this unfortunate desire arrives
But also i swear i hear him say,
(Fraught with irony and bittersweet)
"I've already waited too long"
So naturally
"All my hope is gone."
