I’m tired of meeting movie stars.
Drawn towards drama, romance, and adventure.
I take time off to sit back and think
before rushing in for the
final word or highest mountain.
Heroes don’t look back and
don’t worry about the future.
An immediate flaw when worrying about
what the villain will do next.
I’m tired of meeting characters.
Bent on self destruction,
Ones that write their own novel
of a text message to you.
Hoping you care
and knowing that you must
or you’ll be reading their novel
in the back of the newspaper
under the obituaries.
