Lakeshore Dr. Douglas, Michigan

I drive by the lake
in full view
on sunny afternoons
cliff road sides
long drops

and it’s painful
how beautiful it is
so painful, like longing
I want to wake up there

I want to write there
and overlook that waterscape
every day, every minute

I think I’ll be eternally
happy there, that none
of my problems or pitfalls
can possibly follow me
to a lakeshore
where they’d be instantly
drown out by the lapping
melody of the lake

kissing my soul
collecting all my tears
and taking me away.
