RockPoetry101

“A day can seem just like forever and ever and ever
when you’re waiting for the one you love to speak.
That’s just how I feel.
I keep turning and turning and turning
like a bicycle wheel.
You know, there’s not anything that love can’t heal,
but I needed you to make me see love is real.”
– Kendall Kardt, “Bicycle Wheel,” recorded by Jim Post on Rattlesnake (Fantasy)
