Rich, bold and luring
Invigorating body
Stimulates my mind

The moment my lips touch
Sweet, creamy heat in my cup

The Long Haul

You can’t be in it just for a day
Your heart needs to be committed to stay
Knowing that there’ll be barriers along the way
To overcome by being honest – mean what you say

Now listen to what isn’t being said
I want you to get it all out of your head
Our words are meant to be shared, spoken and read
So give yourself the permission needed to move ahead

Hunker down it’ll be a long haul
Don’t be afraid I’ll catch you if you fall
Always remember that you’ll never please them all
It’s up to you now, there’s no time left to waste or stall

 


Prompt from Saturday (thanks Judy!) and for my friends over at the IECWC.

Inventive Subjugation

 

Here I stand at a crossroads
Staring off into the distance,
As I wait patiently and listen
Loyally, for the next episode

Commanding are rules to role
I struggle with the instructions
It’s the bane of self-destruction
Governing beyond my control

I let the true stories unfold
Taking a path of insistence
Though there’ll be resistance
Accepted in confusions hold

Baring the secret of horrors
Twisting the preferred reality
Toeing the fine line of fantasy
Hidden behind each closed door

Extending around the globe
Reaching into hearts and souls
Where kindred spirits do roam
Together in a place called home
