Fear Anchors

Reblogging from back in December. One of my favorites…

Anchor that held me
Has left the sea floor
Not sure where it went
Isn’t there any more

Swaying and bobbing
The ocean has taken
I look to the captain
But he has forsaken

Swept with the tides
No harbor in sight
Just miss the rocks
Lost to great fright

Then I remembered
Was of my own choice
I must let it all go
Have my own voice

Taking the controls
My vessel, my own
Direction of choosing
Even though all alone

No longer I’m pulled
No longer you steer
No longer I’m anchored
No longer I’ll fear©

Pieces

3ab20f459cc2292eb3ee6f0501599e8a--reflection-art-reflection-photography-ideas

The mirror shattered on the floor
Obscured her face I don’t know her anymore
Tries to find her way back and
Blood is dripping as she reaches out her hand
Attempted to pick up the pieces
But was cut so deep, so the shard she releases
As the pure crimson flows free
Again, she picks up a fragment, but it’s only me©

Lost And Not Found

woman-map-reading

Lost myself, cannot be found
Looked and looked all around
But to no avail I couldn’t find
Where it was I put my mind

How’d I realize I was gone?
The sunrise one early dawn
Beauty of the morning’s sun
No longer felt emotions come

Couldn’t be moved anymore
As I stood on thee ocean shore
The salty air or waves of gold
Yet all I am is bitter and cold

I touch where heart should be
It is a mystery how it did flee
Also found my spirit was MIA
Not certain how I got this way

Was it my choice? Had I known?
That I would leave me all alone
To face this cruel uncaring place
Not one emotion left on this face

So, I put an add out in the paper
“A missing person, it is a caper”
But just received one sad reply
“Sorry I forgot to say goodbye!”©

I Want A Treat

Woman eating chocolate cake

A cookie and a piece of cake
I want a treat, don’t want to bake
So I go to the grocery store
And down the isles I will explore
I need a snack, oh but what
Had my fill of candy, now in a rut
Not a chip not ice cream too
Like sweet and salty, but neither do
A donut looks like a keeper
Or maybe pizza, it is much cheesier
Too many choices to make
Suppose I will just go home to bake©

Awaken

wakeup_sunrise

I wake up with the sunshine on my face
A warm embrace
I wake up to fragrant flowers in the air
Joy every where
I wake up with love down in my heart
You do impart
I wake up to the sound of much laughter
Happily ever after©

Our Passion Burns

177086388003202

Passion as a fire burns around my heart
Whenever you are near the embers start
Despair and pain wield swords to destroy
“I cannot get enough of you,” is their ploy
My mind is a blur, all I can think of is you
As I look into the future, all I see is us two

Do you feel the same my love, never apart
Passion like fire burns around your heart
Will you hold me close and fight for us too
Against all who try to destroy me and you
Happiness for today I hope we can defend
Our destiny entwined until the very end©

Face Of Darkness

95c54aef8a9d9127d31f219942c38e64

Shall I cower in the face of Darkness?
Let it take me by the hand into its bosom
Fall victim as the ones that have gone before
As it woos me like prey being drawn by the hunter
I am unable to be pulled back from its clutches anymore
They all say, “You must fight harder,” but my strength is gone
Darkness shall be my captor and I will be in perfect peace at last©
