1 Poem by Terry Stolz

Into the Night
My face is full and fusty
My mind is on the blink
I’m burning up inside, I shiver into the night
Blankets pulled tightly under my neck
Let me rest until its light
A single tear flows down my cheek

I’m burning up inside, I shiver into the night
Blankets pulled tightly
Thoughts running rampant
Confusion is the conclusion
I’m burning up inside, crud in my eyes

I’m burning up inside, I shiver on into the night
Blankets tossed aside and my mind lies
What was I thinking? Wishful thoughts
Spring at the front door, winter at the back

Aspirations are squandered
Memories forgotten
The horizon nourishes a fool’s paradise
Creating an air castle bolstering my fancy
