A Secret Game--By Rhoda Galgiani--United States

A Secret Game

I had been hungry all these years
for dreams to come my way,
to fill the empty hollow hole
that pains the words I say.

I look at the windows of my dreams
that could not be gently opened,
‘Twas within the reach of fingertips
I hear words my lips softly spoken.

Nature and I often share a vision
or two during a daydream full of gleam,
wish for moments of splendor to appear,
visions reflected on a babbling stream.

Hurting wasn’t new for the quest has
been buried deep within thy frame,
the heart searches the hungry dreams
seeking to win this secret game.
