Your enterprise engages you
and keeps you dedicated with your inspiration
to make you wage and give it all you have,
whatever it may be, some work or love affair,
some project of realization of some dream,
perhaps a work of architecture or of art,
a book or poem of some vital meaning;
and the most important thing is that it is accomplished
and fulfilled, completed in accordance with your plans.
And if it works out well you will have managed to accomplish it
and leave a finished masterpiece for others to enjoy,
and then, what next? There’s nothing more for you to do,
you will feel hollow in a state of vacuum,
you will find a void of nothingness
and miss the hour of devotion and activity
and a remorse like after a collapsed relationship,
the anguish of a loss or a divorce,
a situation of some bottomless unpleasantness
that only can be likened with the worst of hangovers,
that must require some hard work to get you out of it.
It will take time, you will need patience,
but ultimately you will manage,
you will be relieved of that exasperating dreariness
and find yourself a victor, like you also managed
and fulfilled that enterprise, affair or masterpiece of yours.

one trick pony The PoetBay support member heart!
This brings to mind a friend, here on poetbay, who disappeared a long time ago. She was a victor, then suffered a collapse, and now, I do not know.

I appreciate your poem.
