One Step Away

Isn’t it that we always seem

one step away

from a great adventure?

One star away

from a perfect night?

One tear away

from a beautiful disaster?

Isn’t it that we always seem

one frame away

from the movie stars–

that maybe I could be Audrey Hepburn

or Marilyn Monroe

if only you decided to blur your eyes a little,

look at me in a different

light?

Isn’t it that we almost seem

doomed to choose the wrong way?

Like the girl who still hasn’t figured out

the best way to end

her poetry?
