Constellation Surprises

At the time what I felt was real
Was only a practice punch

Feeling good doesn't always mean
Feeling right, right away

Given time, it would have fallen
And, I never would have been able to catch it

Should I hold you to my word?
Probably shouldnít. Probably will.

But "that's life" they say
Only to discover that too late

While driving through my past
I gave in to all my sympathies

Even though it was a cold dark night
I felt warm inside

The night I couldn't find Orion
The night I gave up

-- Kathryn Berit Hoyme
