Excerpt from A Warrior’s Tale, a poem From my blog. For #mylovebug For #eftxphotochallenge #day13 #love #epilepsyawareness #mypoem
It’s in the time-stands-still moments I know you best.
A silken caress, a deep sigh of depression.
Mesmerizing eyes, faintly there.
A portrait in a prison.
It’s in the crush-my-heart moments I know you best.
A stinging grasp, a tormented cry of rage.
Piercing eyes desperately stare.
A dove in a cage.
It’s in the cotton candy moments I know you best.
The melting lips, a joyous gurgle of wonderland.
Sparkling eyes, reaching deeply.
A precious pearl in my hand.
It’s in these moments I’ve come to need you more, I believe.
I push away, I cringe.
I squeeze, I nurture, I breath.
Never would I be a million free birds,
But just one caged with you.
Nor do I dare loose my hands,
For a precious pearl awaits the blue.
Flying, falling, sinking, soaring,
We are yet to find the place to be free.
Cages and prisons and hands be damned.
Holding on I am, tightly for eternity.
Question is, is it really about my child or me?
Sunshine and Pancakes
No chance I will get up!
No smiles, no hugs,
No warm snuggle time for you — harrumph!
You can’t expect me!
Only moans and groans.
Pillows and blankets I choose, you see…
Clouds and toast won’t appease
The monster inside me.
Only sunshine and pancakes please!
