    Here in me I feel
    Development of a force
    A magnetic energy
    Drawing me like a bee
    To the sweet nectar of a
    Beautiful flower

    It is in my nature to chase after my feelings
    I can’t explain it except to say
    “You were the one who lit my flame and
    blew out my fire”
    I cherished you and delighted in your sweetness

    If I could take back those mistakes
    It would be easy enough
    To turn back time
    And hold pain captive
    Never allowing it to hurt you again

    Calloused
    My heart has been.....
    Your rib I will give back
    I selfishly took from you
    Undeserving of your love
    Unworthy of your friendship

    The days have gone by slow
    Since your lips felt mine were missed
    And I wish you were my savior
    To bring me back from despair
    That I have slumbered in way too long
    That I haven’t desired to be without you no more


    I have climbed the tree of life
    And tasted my forbidden fruit
    And now my heart is left sailing In your ocean….
    Waves washing all over me​

    Truly Beautiful

    LadyBelle

    Thoughts evoke feelings
    What you feel is ok and good
    The healing starts when you discover
    You have been touched

    congrats Winner.. Welcome to Destee

    If we knew what we know now, oh how differently we would have behaved, but such is hindsight. This was a beautiful write, in all that is both bitter and sweet.

    drowning in a sea of memories...

    ...as we relive what was...thinking of what could have been. IF ONLY. if only i had loved differently. if only i had behaved lovingly. if only my touch had been tender. if only my words were softer. IF ONLY.

    NICELY DONE, poetess.

    and the river floweth.
