The Poem Within A Poem

A poem within a poem
Isn't always what it's cracked up to be.

A card or five is passed.
A glance, a slight frown, a desire.
The cards inspire,
And words flow to the page.

A paradox is formed.

Denial is accepted;
The poem within a poem is praised,
But rejection draws near, inevitable.

A star shines in commemoration.
The boy is victorious.

The poem within a poem
Never perishes.
