I am back after a brief break from writing. Well maybe a long break. We have been in the middle of a long renovation project at our apartment complex. I know a few of you have missed my blogs. I am going to begin posting poetry that I have written in the past while I work on new poetry. This particular poem was written for a special friend whom will always be "The One That Got Away."
Ahhh! Sweet reprieve! You are my solace tucked deep inside.
I journey to you a hundred times a day.
Your arms wrapping me in the safety of a sunrise.
Your touch the sustenance for a faded rose. Brining out my wishes, my desires, and completion.
I see you in my dreams and find you in my heart.
Never imagining I would find you there.
Though my heart is with you, I find my hand elsewhere.
Wishing for something that now I know I can't have.
My desire unwavers as your are tucked away in my heart.
Always hoping that one day my journey to you is real.
