Black Plastic Frames

Who said sad stories can't have happy endings?

The way he said my name, at my knees, bending

Sent to earth with an S on his chest

My heart guarded with a bullet proof vest

I lost focus no plan or vision

Bleeding at the heart scalpel made incision

Down to the ground I fell with no cause

Beautiful lifeless creature with plenty of flaws

Hid his eyes behind his black plastic frames

You Mr. Kent and I Ms. Lanes

The need you shouldered right from the start

A secret ingredient to cure an aching heart

You came to my rescue when I needed you most

The feeling you gave when you held me close

Afraid I was to look deep into your stare

Afraid I was to be captured by your glare

In your arms I decided to rest my weakened soul

A gentle kiss that made my heart whole

Heaven sent like an angel you came and swept

Lifting me from the pits of hell where I once wept

You must have watched a rerun of Superman last weekend. Very nicely the tempo and the centering around the black frame glasses...very much a centerpiece in the Superman disguise. Up and Awesome. WB

This is awe inspiring, Bella. It is wonderful when someone special comes along in our life and raises up and out from the chaos or uncertainty of our earlier existence. There are people like this in the world. And to find love with someone like that... well, shout it from the rooftops, girl. :)

And you did. And I am so happy for you. :)
