hold tight

Updated on April 14, 2012

braze yourself

and yes, i mean braze

we must harden the parts of us

which are most afraid.

alone and frightened

he stares at his ghost

questioning why

finding answers he would never

have chose

his silence screams volumes

his cries soft and black

wondering mostly

why the decks have been stacked

just a moment without this

the pain is astounding

hold tight to my voice

block out your surroundings

he lays and he wonders

and dreams of her skin

imagining her taste

and how she feels within

the struggle is painful

the air is so thick

escaping escape

not easy to lick

forget all the terror

lay with me now

escape to an Eden

i bet you know how

to darkened forest

we can away

endless cool nights

never turning to day

we can lay in the grass

make love in the breeze

ill rip

ill bite

ill break

ill tease

gripping the earth

with new sense of passion

don't leave me here alone

escape from a world that's crashing.

down all around us

seek shelter in me

i might not be much

but I'm in love with thee.

      Addictions can be over come. waiting can sometimes be an have to realize when to let for someone addicted to drugs he has to want to help himself before he can ever be helped. And somethings are worth fighting for, no it may never be easy, but also it doesnt always work out in the end. No matter how hard you fight. I think True Love, and true things worth having, shouldnt be that hard. You cant force things to be if they arent meant to be ya know. Sometimes things just come naturally. and thats the kind of person and love and relationship I want. Someone worth fighting for, but i wont have to... Im tired of fighting. Your life is worth all the treasure in the world. Dont waste it away.

      You could be right. But for me..well you read my caterpillar poem...and I still feel of course, just not as emotional as i used to be. try not to let things get to me so much, or take things personally. It is what it is...and if someone doesnt appreciate me or want me the way I do them then I am done wasting my time on them. I am not letting someone who isnt worth the pain hurt me anymore. and if they are worth the pain..well then they wouldnt hurt you in the first place.

      nikki- i feel like all i do is try to harden myself. but, to no avail. some harts can only stay hard for so long, some souls protected only for a moment. sooner or later it all sinks in, and then agony comes back like a long lost friend.

      Awesome Poem! We all ask the questions and dont always get the answers we choose. We cant choose the answers, they just are. Just like we cant choose who our hearts fall for. Beautiful poem. just flows off the tongue. Great imagery. I love the first part. I've been brazing myself for years, I think I am finally at a place where I am not afraid of getting hurt any more...I just accept that I will most likely get let down so I dont expect anything that way when I get nothing, I wont be so disappointed.

      Isn't passion so beautiful, you exude it here in your words. You embrace all that is woman, the desires to satisfy and be satisfied in turn. Merlin's magic indeed taken us to Eden to enjoy the forbidden fruits as one.

      I enjoy your romantic pieces, they are like an elixir to me and fill my cup to overflowing. I am always stunned when I come to your page and find yet another one of your soulful pieces shared. I will be sharing this, as it needs to be read by many.
