Her spirit lost
Within a cloud of hesitation
Her fears of flying free
Are her own damnation.

A lullaby begins to drift
A forgotten melody
Sound quietly caressing
Like a liquid reverie.

She begins to listen
As the music flows
The silken touch of memory
Tenderly begins to grow.

Notes swell within the air
Rising in intensity
A symphony of floating souls
So rich and velvety.

A crescendo of desire
Rips the night apart
From the bleeding stars
Her healing now starts.

Tears of truth do cling
Offering their tale
She listens with her heart
And knows she will prevail.

So with her spirit's grace
She lets the wind arrive
And gently carry away
A love that long ago died.



 *Krista Knutson*

~*Like a lion, without fear of the howling pack,
Like a gust of wind, ne'er trapped in a snare,
Like a lotus blossom, ne'er sprinkled by water,
Let me, like a unicorn, in solitude roam.*~ Hymn Of Buddha

Krista.....I am glad that you can again hear the songs that echo in your heart again.  And one day that love will blossom so strong and so loud.  Nothing will ever end    Wonderful  

 
I don't buy temporary insanity as they murder defense. Because
people kill people. That's and animal instinct. I think breaking
into someone's home and ironing all their clothes is temporary
insanity.
