Every picture of you,
brings me back to a time,
where all things were fine,
The world was all mine,
and life was divine.

I wanted to share it with you.

Gained perspective,
from taking your pain, feeling strained.

As I bare it with you.

And to the naked eye,
You and I, are one.
Living art, so perfectly done.

But, that collection has attracted dust,
And it’s a must, for trust, and self reflection.
Perfection never met.
What lies in the message...

...is love. It's us.

Above, everything else I could think of,
One thing can never subside,
And that’s loving you.

Forever, never, and in between.
The middle of nowhere isn’t always where it seems.
Of all the lies I've been told
Of all the promises that have been broke
The ones I lose sleep over most
Are those three words you misspoke

I inspire
I won’t expire
I transcend
I won’t descend
Aspire to transpire
Make pages
In His Story
Make a name
That won’t fade
Through the ages
And paint your images
With full colors
That time can’t erase
Mount your fears
And they will take you far
Like a feather
Blown by the wind
Fear is the weakness
It cripples your mind
And weakens your faith

When your mind plays up
Take a deep breathe and stand up
Be a summer tree
I had 3 glasses of wine yesterday I shouldn't have had none as not great on hang overs I even put lemonade and ice in my wine to water it down  , anyway was finally inspired :))
And England won so i shouldn't grumble xxxxx
I love being in Love but,
I'm not particularly fond of people.
Perhaps I haven't found "the one" even though I don't believe he/she exists, we just settle for the person who annoys us the least.
I don't like relationships.
Simple as that really, it's all good at the beginning but then I just get bored.
I didn't realise it hurt people that much until now.
Then again, I didn't realise how much I prefer the crush feeling and the tense on edge butterfly feeling, until now.

I'm in love with Love.
And she (yes, she) is the most beautiful, blossoming, aspiring, inspiring thing I have ever known.
She is all I've ever deserved.

This blanket brings warmth to most everyone
Yet, when I wrap it around me I seem colder
Yearning to thaw the frost from my bones
Within your arms, I melt while you smolder

You said it hurts,
But it cuts me deeper
I yearned for you to say it
Yet here I am, still playing mind reader

My brain's shut down
While my heart continues bleeding
Echoes of our love
Linger on while I'm grieving

Don't want to be your anchor
Don't want to weigh you down
Want to be the wind
Against your sails
Take you far
Further than you've ever known

When tears caress my cheekbones
It's rarely for my sake
This heart of mine empathizes immeasurably
For when another endures pain

My voice may not soothe
My written words unlikely to mend,
But my silent presence offers
Peace and prayer
Until your healing begins

clouds darken the sky
with their endless rain
foreboding silence
settles and blankets

yet through the despair
of those who cry woe
a brightness pours through

a ray of sunshine
does your dear heart hold
thank you for shining
your light down on me

your endearing warmth
melts away my doubts
like so much piled snow
making way for spring

i've known the summer
and its blazing heat
its fun adventures
for all of my life

yet your cool nature
and slow gentle winds
it incites in me
a new sense of peace
for my beloved sun.
