Stars Of Heaven’s Gate to Super Mario: Underworld 
From a lover at heaven's gate 
To a super hero in the underworld 

Stars Of Heaven’s Gate (English sonnet) 

I’m chasing stars above my heaven’s gate
Enthralled in realms beyond enchantment’s flow
They hold my heart with dreams of long ago
When souls of lovers rose to meet their fate
I’m lead to places time will never know
Where songs of ever wonder’s treasure wait
A promised start which lovers can create
In heaven’s gate which whisper far below
I’m racing through the endlessness unknown
With silken waves of paradise’s shore
Which warm my passions nothing would we miss
Then all at once to darkness I am thrown
So I can fully feel how high stars soar
As heaven’s gates evoked a promised kiss

A lover is distracted from his goal by stars in this English sonnet. Here we have a lover who is lost in the stars. For three stanzas he leads us on a magic adventure. Then suddenly and abruptly his journey is put to an end, as he reaches heaven's gate: A kiss. If we haven't figured it out, the stars and the first three stanzas were about his lady's eyes. 

I remember that night. Arlene and I had just gotten back from our cruise down the Mississippi River. Arlene went over all the pone calls we had missed while we were away and I went through the mail. There it was. Our credit card bill. All those outfits, the nights out, the parties, years of those disco days had taken their toll. We were over our heads in debt. What were we to do? We went to Bill's Place, for San Francisco's best hamburgers. After which we drove to Lookout Point, to watch the sun go down. It was the end of an era. There was no need for words. Arlene and I both knew what had to be done. I remember. after the sun had set, losing myself in Arlene's eyes. The nights, the parties. that couple, all there. In her eyes. I have often enjoyed losing myself in Arlene's eyes, but never, or never again like this. 

In many was, life is like a play. As one act is over a new one begins. Our script is made up as we go. How the act went is determined by the audience within us. Critics, on the outside will say as they want, but is we who are the real and final judges. And we are so good, we can handle many plays at the same time: like home and work. Then there are the small plays: Like the vacations, the outings, the parties. Then there are the eras: the child, the 20s, the parent. Every once in a while, we get to spend time in the dressing room, in between acts, in between plays. But the shows go on. And how are we doing? Listen to the applaud and cheers of the audience within us. It was a challenge to be us,but we did a unbelievable job. And as we take our well deserved bow, Enjoy.

All the world's a stage, 
And all the men and women merely players; 
They have their exits and their entrances, 
And one man in his time plays many parts.

  2. It is like a script in a way, except you can easily write yourself out of crap in an actual script, life isn't so easy. Plus a script is about 200 pages max, can get a lovey dovey story in easy there and make it look easy. Life doesn't work that way, lots of crap in between.

    1. I closed by saying, life was a challenge. You gave an instance of why.
