Skirting You


I closed my eyes...
you couldn't see
the thoughts behind,
those of tomorrows.

You never fail me,
though my expectations
are high because
time is so limited
and the intensity
of my being
wishes for the alwaysconnection.

Loving you
comes with ease,
it's the reverse that raises fear
and the ever lifecurious  me.

So I closed my eyes...
so you could see
the quiet of me.

M

Good morning, Maureen! Joining the words and italicizing them, was very creative and effective.

~ alwaysconnection

~ lifecurious  

You have the gift of conveying the soft "quiet" of you.

Hugs with love,

Hiya Maureen, Good Morning
Yes, it certainly does meet the challenge, and made me wonder, why is it so hard for some people to let their fears go, show them, talk it out, and then go forward?

Great write girl!!!!

Thank you Linda...hope the day finds you well.

Lee, I guess   it's that insecurity once you have been "let down" in life...not wanting it to happen again.

If you talked to my lifelong friends they would say "WHAT?" you insecure???

But different situations can take the strength out of you.

Hugs and good morning~~ and you know Lee, someday we should have lunch...if you ever have enough time for lunch that a person like me who has trouble with directions the first time 'round, could get there on time

LOL...Maureen...you just need to plan your trip so that you leave early enough to get lost, enjoy the scenery and still arrive on time!

As for your poem?

lifecurious...

I like that!

Excellent Maureen!
You met the challenge very well.

Something tugs at me, I've no doubt of that.
Something from the sea, whichever one I'm near.
When I stray too far from beachland, it calls me back
