"Dreamland/Chasing Lies"

Dreamland

Inspired and dedicated to the pink umbrella

Oh how my heart does wander,

to places over yonder

where lilly's dance and glitter

my heart does patter, pitter,

Into a fairytale dream

where stars brightly gleam,

just within my reach

I can touch the sky's feet.

and burst into flight,

I will soar this lovely night

until the break of dawn

when my eyelids open with a stretch and yawn

and all is broken,

that magical spell; I've awoken.

"Chasing Lies"

I must have been chasing lies

because I kept running into you.

You were the bittersweet truth

of a dream that would never come true.

You were just another example of a time when

another was chosen over me.

It didn't matter how hard

My heart would have beat.

It could have fallen right out of my chest

And you still wouldn't have noticed.

This poem instills in me the need to look over my shoulder and see what a not so innocent glance may mean...just how does a person really feel about me.;)

Hello again Nikki.

I know it's been a long time, but arriving back i see that you have change. Not yourself but your work. I wouldn't have thought it could but your hubs are better than every.

You seem to have a hand with magic in the finger tips. It seems you can turn your work in many direction, the good, the bad, and the ugly, so to say. As i read your work i'm amazed but thrilled. Sometimes the hair stands up on my arms and sometimes i just give a sigh and say beautiful. Keep em coming Nikki. LOL Ghaelach

Hi Nikki .

Don't ever say your work is done.

You captivate me with your master pieces and when not there are thousands of others that you do the same to.
