    Nothing to something back to
    Something of nothing within
    Everything that was is it still is
    For right now….
    Lost meaning
    Lost vision
    Tomorrow’s rainbows fade
    In the Jamaican wind
    Love have faded
    Upon the black sand
    Crush in the heavens as tears run
    And the sun don’t gleam
    As it once did the rose fold
    Once was so bold and bright
    The joy of your light
    Now you no longer see
    In a hush the cry of the soul
    Weeps loud
    But no one can hear
    Bored this pain
    As you took true love in vain
    The hurt cuts like fire
    Inside the walls of the heart
    Not caring just letting it lay
    Lost and lone in a mystify state
    Above the midnight sky
    No longer looks the same
    For the island have vanish
    Of pearly seas and midnight scene
    Upon the entering of the ocean blue
    Of you and I in the wind
    On a calm breeze sailing high
    In our own realm
    Nothing to something back to
    Something of nothing
    Do you even know?
    Do you even care?
    Once a heart of gold
    Purple passion
    Gem of a diamond the apple of your eye
    Likewise as we sail high
    But the star is black and the moon gray
    And the day is dim….
    Nothing to something back to
    Something of nothing
    Once more….
    So if you love me as you say you do
    Why must we keep going through this
    And just be together...within our realm
    Just fly away to a hidden place
    Just us two in love’s paradise
    Beyond the starz far from the orbs
    In purple mountains
    And white laced clouds
    On the black sand of love
    Nothing to something back to
    Something of nothing
    It can’t be….

    Why can't we just let things be? Why does there have to be a barrier, when it seems much easier for the river to just flow? Wish I had the answer. Emotive piece.

    Something to nothing and back again
    Will love win?
    Or does time play cruel jokes
    Upon restless folks
    Seeking life liberty love
    And any sign from above
    With a mind of gold
    Or a heart of coal
    Will we ever see
    Sometimes nothing is all
    It is meant to be....

    Digging it!

    This is a beautiful flow MzBlk. Very nice.

    It has a wind of island dreams.

    Making something out of what one has.
    Making something out of nothing.

    Drawing from whince one came.
    Something from a nothing.

    Dust blowing winds of my island.
    Sand is black as you said.
    Glistening moon drop kisses
    above rain drops fall on my head.

    Heart pounding looking sad.
    Willow tree hanging low.
    Pick me up into your life
    take me where you go.

    Your not heavy sweet love of mine.
    Coming thru me.

    Touching time
    doesn't matter what was said
    On my mind your sweet
    Lover said.

    Touch me once you have my heart.
    Captured totally. From the start
    Standing boldly by your side.
    I won't let the trouble fold.
    Us into it's strangling hold.

    Soft cheek kisses.
    Smiling wishes.
    Dancing in my mind.
    Dance with me.

    Once more
    my love and take this
    beyond time.

    You have done it again... :heart:
