Today I set you free



Today I set you free
to be who you need to be
Our paths crossed
In a magical place

It was the perfect choice
But your heart was too fragile
Our destination was not meant to be

Day by day, reflections
Of us in shattered glass
This is a place I can never return
Our destiny was never meant to be

Poems of love will now fade
Trails of tears will be distant
In the oasis two soul mates
Stand with faces silent

The thunder of forgotten dreams
Will now sound throughout infinite
May you be at peace
Under a gossamer sky
And fly on the wings of an angel
Throughout your journey

There're few times in life that I've been stuck for words. This time is one of them. Brilliantly written!!!

Long, Dark Night

I stand here late at night, beside a roaring fire
With a handful of old poems that I wrote for you before
My head tells me to throw them down into the pyre
My hearts says hang on to them, fool, just for one day more

I knew you could not be my muse forever
Missing your hair, and voice, and face is my regret
I'll cherish every moment that we had together
Even though, the saddest thing is that we never met

Upon you for this I can not now lay the blame
Flower of springtime, I'm destined for fall
Before you go I must thank you, my life is better since you came.
Though late at night, your name I'll sometimes call

It's nearly dawn, the fire dying, stars fade one by one
I'm standing here with old poems, waiting for the sun.

Happy Valentines day,Shy!!!!

Alex said...

Happy Valentines Day!! My old computer decided it would take a permanent vacation so it had to be replaced.

Alex said...

You're right it is "pure"!!!

Alex said...

I see from the entries that you have come back from the edge of the "cliff"!!! The Second Lady may have made you sweat a little, but she wasn't going to let you "fall" (except in one instance). I'll let you figure that one out on your own.

Enocia said...

Good to have you back in brilliant form, Shy.

Lots of love,

Hey Alex, happy valentines day to you.

Sorry about your old computer. That's a bummer but a new one is always nice ha.

The
"edge of the cliff" It was to say the least. I am feeling great and want to stay this way.

I think I know what that "fall" is ha. Nice..

Am I late for valentines day again?

Story of my life, all those free snogs going around and I turn up 24 hours short of a good lip tickle.

Ah well!!!

Great new pic Shy... a fairy in stockings... She could have come up with a pair of fishnets though.

Nice one

Amanda said...
