Yesterday I wrote a poem of epic proportions while supposed to be paying attention in class. I love when that happens. It's only epic because I haven't written one that long in awhile. And then it got me thinking about other things, which prompted another poem. I also love when that happens.

Sigh...

when did I become old enough for these types of things?

I always say that, but it's very true.

Isn't it nice to know that the lining is silver? Isn't it nice to know that we're going home?

To My Child: Part Two
7.7.08

I fear that I have tainted
your name.
I fear the truth will drive
us apart.
If you only knew,
I fear you would be ashamed.

I want to hold you,
to smell your hair
and see Games of my youth
reflected in your eyes.
I want to share secrets with you,
and hold hands on scary nights.
I want to watch you love,
I want to witness you learn.
I want to touch your soft skin
and know you are mine and
no one else's.

If I beg on my knees, I can
only pray you could begin
to forgive me.
I love you.
Until we meet, keep me in
your mind's eye.

"Anything"
by: Mae

Love, it's the wave I ride
That won't ever reach the shore
Overwhelmed by the tide
but wanting nothing more..tonight
Than to take this time and make it all mine
It's coming around again

Every now and again sometimes
I get lost on the wind of a dream
The air gets clean and the seas get wide
and I can do anything
The pain it won't even cross my mind
There's wonder in everything
The rope gets loose and the chains unbind
and I can do anything

Hope, it's the light that strikes
that burns inside of me
It's a blinding light but somehow I can see...again
When I've lost my way
It's becoming very clear
And it's coming around again

Every now and again sometimes
I get lost on the wind of a dream
The air gets clean and the seas get wide
and I can do anything
The pain it won't even cross my mind
There is wonder in everything
The ropes get loose and the chains unbind
and I can do anything

Somewhere between the darkness and the light
My spirit takes to fly
The colors fill the sky
And I'm free
Oh-oh...

It's coming around again
It's coming around again
It's coming around again
