Emotions Raw


Emotions raw,
i want you to touch me
one more time.
This love is an open door,
stay just a little longer.
Once you have left,
ill be alone trying to hold
your memory in my hands but
its like
free
flowing
water.
Not knowing what meanders around the river bed.
Wish i could swim in your waters forever,
but im bearly able to keep my head up as it is.
And i can feel your eyes on me,
i dnt even have to turn to know that you're there
watching.
Your touch stroking softly,
even though you're out of reach.
I'd love to spend my life without paying the price,
but no.

    ok... felt a little bit 'dodgy' around the 'Wish i could swim in your waters' part, but otherwise this is very good: -) (Report) Reply

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
