Captivated - Poem by Living Experience

Into the light I step at dawn,
Wind blows pass me singing a song,
Flowers bloom, scent of dew,
Every thought seems to be of you.

Afternoon strolls - through the park,
Walking hand and hand till it gets dark,
Watching the stars in the darkened sky,
The future flashes before our eyes.

Full moon is bright shining down,
Lights the earth without a sound,
Holding you tight with in my arms,
Captivated by your romantic charms.

Unknown feelings what can they be,
Other than thoughts of you and me,
Unknown touches - soft skin and kiss,
Oh these feelings are heavenly bliss.

Caught In A Moment

We can’t always help,
Who we fall completely for,
One thing is for certain,
Those feelings we often explore.

Caught up in the moment,
Nothing serious just little flirts,
Spending time with them feels good,
Not caring who we hurt.

Then the reality slowly sinks in,
The lives that could be destroyed,
That you were nothing more to them,
A summer playmate, last year’s toy.

Even though we know these things,
There are things we can’t ignore,
Two hearts in search of something,
Only one left devastated to the core.

I was caught in a moment of lust,
Lust is for the ones you can never have,
Until you learn you love them,
Then you know it will never last.

Their hearts committed to another,
Your feelings will never change their minds,
They have all the great reasons and excuses,
And you feel that your heart is doing the time.

Caught up in something that shouldn’t have been,
Caught in the lore of the romantic buzz,
Caught in the feelings of letting go,
Caught in a moment that’s all it was.
