    Butterfly Park.

    Every year, the county fair comes to Butterfly Park
    And I would visit and watch the couples there, hand in hand
    As they shared secret’s that seemed to be
    Wonderful conversations of enchantment

    I would sit and watch, the lovers go by
    Her hand filled with the cotton candy
    of blueberry swirls
    He, so delighted in the sugar of she
    Ran his fingers through her tangled wild curls

    I was happy for them…
    although wished it was me
    So I took in the ferris wheel so that I could see
    All the love being born below me…

    Higher in the nights sky
    I looked down below
    Saw a Giant Teddy Bear
    With a big satin bow
    That he won for she…
    I was so happy for her
    But wished it was me.

    The diamond crusted sky loned it’s ear to me
    The winds offered their whispers of love
    High above the fairgrounds I sat
    Witnessng their love from above.

    Motionless, I sat
    Drinking in the love of thee
    So happy for them
    Yet wished it was me.

    The park was filled with children laughing, and singing
    Funnel cakes with strawberry filling
    Not so funny clowns…
    Just laughing at me
    For coming to the county fair alone, I see
    Maybe I wanted to drown myself in their love,
    Let me be!
    For I am happy for them
    Yet wish it was me.

    Tears pouring down my cheeks
    And in my chest cavity, my little heart beats
    And beats….and beats…for thee
    That will not allow my soul to leak out of me
    But will rescue me from the ferris wheel of misery
    Bring me down to the ground safely

    Im no longer happy for them!

    I wish it were me!!

    Thank you S4U, thank you $Rich...

    Writing this was rather spontaneous, and although I am not experiencing this right now, their have been times that I have felt like this. he he he...I can laugh about it, but it truly is a hard thing to swallow, when love is all around you...


    Thank you so much.

    yes i know , i've been in your shoes and saw with your eyez

    it's like everywhere you go and turn u see sweet moments taking place
    then you take a quick glance at self standing there all alone but you know
    i always look up again to capture happiness within another and it makes me smile
    I want this too and will get it someday !

    sweetapplepie - Doubtless you captured the searching heart with beauty and faultless flair sitting side by side on that ferris wheel of your spontaneity and riding it all the way down to this poetic treasure below. For a poet, it's a grand asset to have. Never lose it. This was a work of art and it's to be loved. Namyh
    P.S. - By the way, thanks for the ride and the view from above.

    Hello Sweet apple pie...

    In love’s transition the soul of a heart yearns for its return.
    Thank God that condition isn't permanent.

    I enjoyed the read!
