Challenge Accepted


My mind wonders to the outdoors

My ears ring in the silence

In the night air my vision blurs

Of wisping hair and mute guidance


I can run, but I can’t hide

The heat that I hold within me

My telling eyes, and exposed thighs

Beg for you to see me


Like a greedy doe through the picket fence

With a bag of stolen carrots

My body’s forced to except failure

So delicious there’s no regrets


I’ve lost all fight, I’ve got no defense

No excuses that hold any merit

With pointed toes I come unglued

When my challenge is accepted
