Not a Goddess


I cannot be your Savior.
I am no Goddess from above.
I am just a simple person
Who believes in our love.

The pedestal you put me on
is way to high you see,
so take me down with loving arms
Please do not worship me.

You must fight your own demons
Your dragons you must slay
You must look deep within yourself
Please listen to what I say.

I can be there in your darkness night
I can guide you through the storm
I can give you a loving smile
To help to keep you warm.

I cannot not fight your pain inside
That is something you must do
Only you can conquer your own fears
Just remember  I Love You.

I cannot be your Savior.
I am no Goddess from above.
I am just a simple person
Who believes in our love.



 --------------
You got to get up every morning with a smile on your face
and show the world all the love in your heart
Then people are gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes you will
That your beautiful as you feel.~~~ Carol King

Wow... this reminds me so much of what my ex-fience' used to say that it's earie... er however you spell it... thanks.  It brings back memories and even seems to add a more optimistic tone to them. ;-)

 "The storm rises up when the shadows descend
every beat of my heart every day without end
I will stand like a rock I will bend till I break
till theres no more to give if thats what it takes
I will risk everything I will fight I will bleed
I will lay down my life if thats what you need
every second I live thats the promise I make"

I have no idea who wrote this... tell me if you know. =)

kk, this is AWESOME!!!
this is my fav of your..very well written
perfect poem!!
take care, jm

 Well the sun sets gently on your shoulders
And it makes me want to touch you there.
And the light in your eyes makes me feel
Like there's something much better out there
Something kind...
And I know someday I might be looking around
Trying to find some purpose
Well purpose it can't be that hard to find
As long as I've got the wind...
The wind and your love to carry me.

Very lovely and touching...kindof reminded me of the line Julia Roberts spoke to her boyfriend in Notting Hill.  She was playing herself, a big hot shot movie star and her boyfriend was just a normal guy who owned a secondhand book store.  And she said to him  "I am just a woman standing before a man asking him to love me." ...or something like that..it was a very touching scene.  James

I agree with everyone here Kitkat. I like the way it keeps you reading, and the ending brings it all together again. Very strong and well done.
Your bud,

Thanks for your kind words,
Sometime those who care for you just do not relize the pressure they put on you when they think you are perfect or have all the answers. I feel if I fail them it would hurt them. So I just do not want that put on my shoulders.
