The bitterness recedes
Yet the tide is shortcoming
Take me from it
So that I never swim again
JC Apr 2021
I wished for you
To make me smile
I sat and waited
Thought for a while

You were on my street
I was pulling weeds
You stomp on my yard
I laugh and my dog barked
You made me smile

We run to the trees
Playing hide and seek
Birds chirping in harmony
Our hearts a symphony
You looked back, eyes wild
You made me smile

Twenty years later
Our love is only greater
Our memories still hatch
With you I still laugh
Knocking on heavens door
My hand is holding yours
And together, we'll be smiling

Taking a breath
Thinking things through
Thinking of love
Of course, that’s you

I look to the past
But time marches on
My face is a mask
But love will wear it off

My smiles, my tears
I want them all to you
My choices, my regrets
You can share yours too!

For a child begot
We’ll raise him together
After tying the knot
Just us

Well here's a freestyle
Let me rap a mile
As I put on a smile
And think of tiny tiles
Like stepping stones
Or skeleton bones
To make words flow
Off the top of my head and
In yo girls bed
Yeah I'm freestyling
I'm straight up wildin'
I've got the mileage
For proverbial cartilage
Calcium, muscle, all the organs are here
For an MC that everyone fears
Let me take a breath
And wallow in death
From the mic massacre
You feeling the burn?
Yeah, get lost, ****
I love poetry.

Here I am
A lonely poet
But a poet forever to be

As I wish and I wait
For a dream to escape
And possess a lover's embrace

To which I scoff
And shake my head
But hate for it not to come true

As well as I want
I'll script my heart out
And begin my journey anew

But writing I shall
And writing I will
For a poet I truly am

For I write and I weep
For the dreams I keep
Thus the new day began

Summer nature song
Sweet chorus and cry from far
Birds flies with freedom
Just came back from an outing. It's a lovely day out today!
Stay safe and well today, everyone!
Much love,
Lyn 💜

Don't ever give your heart
To someone who doesn't want it
