Rendezvous

Rendezvous

Lightly falling rain
soaking her hair
Excited she moved quickly
Anticipating
Feeling the chill
of the night air

Branches hanging low
snagging her dress
Oblivious to the elements
Extremities turning numb
Her zealous thoughts
she could not repress

Sheltering under the trees
he saw her running
toward him
In all her beauty
even disheveled
she was stunning

Facing each other
he was reticent to speak
Holding back his words
reining in his actions
fearing the havoc
he might wreak

Looking into his eyes
she knew it was wrong
Her head lowered
in a shameful repose
She opened her eyes
but he had already gone

Scared of Lonely

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’m in this fight and I’m swinging, and my arms are getting tired
I’m trying to beat this emptiness, but I’m running out of time
I’m sinking in the sand and I can barely stand
And I’m lost in this dream, I need you to hold me
I’m scared of lonely
I try to be patient, but I’m hurting deep inside
And I can’t keep waiting, I need comfort late at night
And I can’t find my way, won’t you lead me home?
Cause I’m lost in this dream, I need you to hold me

[Chorus]
I’m scared of lonely
And I’m scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I’m scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I’m scared of being alone
I can’t seem to breathe when I am lost in this dream, I need you to hold me
I’m scared of lonely
I’m scared of lonely

[Verse 2]
I cry at night, cause my baby’s too far to be by my side
To wipe away these tears of mine, so I hold my pillow tight
To imagine you would stretch your hand looking for mine
Cause I’m lost in this dream , I need you to hold me

[Chorus]
I’m scared of lonely
And I’m scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I’m scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I’m scared of being alone
I can’t seem to breathe when I am lost in this dream, I need you to hold me

[Bridge]
I need your strength when nobody is around
Cause I’m tired of this emptiness, I think I’m drowning
I can’t be lonely no more
Cause I’m lost in this dream, I need you to hold me

[Chorus]
I’m scared of lonely
And I’m scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I’m scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I’m scared of being alone
I can’t seem to breathe when I am lost in this dream, I need you to hold me
I’m scared of lonely
And I’m scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I’m scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I’m scared of being alone
I can’t seem to breathe when I am lost in this dream, I need you to hold me
I’m scared of lonely…..I’m scared of lonely…..

Cliffs

Cliffs

The sea was kissed
by the morning mist
Darkness tarried
as the sun struggled
to be set free

Standing atop the cliffs
a wild picture
of windblown
red hair likened to
the Flame tree

Cloak lifted by the wind
she scanned the horizon
searching for a sign
Praying he comes today
as was his decree

In the distance
she espies the sails
The ship moving at a clip
becoming clearer, getting nearer
bringing her the key

A flock of seagulls
Releasing its cacophony
Rose up around her
Its noise summoning
her sensually

Heart lifted from its
recessed pit
she mounts her steed
Galloping to the shoreline
sorrows vanish
once more carefree

Eyes Wide Open – Week 6

Here are some photos from this week to share with you.  As usual they are taken on my iPhone.

Enjoy your Saturday and keep your eyes wide open!

Butterfly on Daisy

I couldn’t believe this butterfly let me get so close to him.  I guess he was busy feeding himself!

 

Little Crab

This little crab ran across my path while I was walking on the nature trail

 

Desert Rose

A Desert Rose I am nurturing

Catamaran

A pretty Catamaran

 

Marigold and a Bee

Spot the Bee on the Marigold

 

Respect – An Acrostic Poem

Resembling someone I no longer know

Empty, devoid of emotion, almost inhumane

Seeing you, grudgingly, in your moment of glory

Pumped victoriously with ego

Endorphins swimming with energy

Circling the waters like a shark

Targeting your catch of the day
