This Entity
Lori LockHeart

It has a funny way of working.
This entity.

The surprises, the instances that sneak up on you.
This is what we remember.
And what remarkably becomes important to us.

This is how it happened with you.
A surprise.  

In my intention for new direction,
I turned down an unexpected path
And found my way to a beautiful friend.

Itís inexplicable, this entity.
You think you have all you need
Until you discover what was missing all along.

Before you, no one even heard mention
Of my most inherent thoughts,
Except the cold, vacant, unresponsive paper.

What did I do before?
I canít even imagine it.

Now I have our kinship, a new direction, and these words.
And all are infinite.

It was a surprise.
Yet my entity is changed forever.

How startling it is.
This entity we call life.

It is amazing how when some "entity" captivates us - everything changes all around us.  The past falls away and the future becomes something to look forward to.  You capture this feeling well.  Beautiful work, Lori.

Lori, it is wonderful and amazing how we can look at the same thing 100 times but then when we look at it through another's eyes we see it for what it really is and how life seems complete until we meet someone that completes US. Thank you for sharing this it gave me a reason to pause and "think".

†Hold me for yesterday
Kiss me for tomorrow
But love me for today.

this is very cool poem Lori-girl...
I do so like the way you mind works.
very nice view thru your eyes
take care, jm


 It's amazing
How you make your face just like a wall
How you take your heart and turn it off
How I turn my head and you lose it all ...
And it's unnerving
How one move just puts me by myself
There you go just trusting someone else
Now I know I put us both through hell ...
I'm not sayin
That there was nothing wrong
I just didn't think you'd ever get tired of me
And I'm not sayin
We ever had the right to hold on
I just didn't wanna let you get away from me.

Oh so true Lori ... the pleasant surprises in life can be wonderful when you are least expecting them. I loved how you portrayed this feeling!

Best wishes,

You are an Entity you say
I like the poem, the flow, the style and your way
Well done is all what I can say
But you are more than Entity
For someone you are an Eternity



 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
