The Air

By Raven of Erin

The air tastes of anticipation
A laugh a sigh
Selfishly selfless gratification
A weary tear
Wiped away from the cheek
An old fear
The bold made meek
Brought low
So much yet to know

    Thanks, appreciate it. One of my firsts after a long break. Glad to know I still have some of the old touch.

    "Selfishly selfless gratification" - that is an excellent turn of a phrase! I know just what you mean with that, and can picture just the attitude. Ciao, T/S Scholar
