Live Life

By Damien Knight

I live my life filled with adventure
Rock climbing, travel, and surf
What does it matter, I dont have her?
I long to climb cliffs, her with me
To show her the falls of the Ohio,
To sit in theatre watching Dracula.
To enjoy the arts and outdoors,
Simply display my skill with spatula.
Life is amazing every day!
Fossil hunting with my children
Daughter sings, son builds displays.
When day is done and class complete,
I come home turn on reality T.V.
My guitar sits in a corner ready.
I turn on my laptop and write
This all is part of life for me.
I have all I could ever ask for,
Perfect kids, cats, dogs and house.
Still my Princess Aniya who I adore,
Not with me, she’s what’s missing.

She pressed the frilled crests to the side of her smooth face and neck as she edged nearer. She watched over him with an anxious eye.

A new large line appeared on the shell. Rork looked up and detected the crack. He called out with telepathy.

Mika, it is hatching, he exclaimed.
