Heartbeat - Poem by RHEY W. HEDGES

The Spirit part of me understands about human taboos and unconditional Love gives each person the right to choose or reject the other each day … but the selfish Human part of me felt like this …
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~


Dreaming of Love I dreamed of YOU,
dark to light to dark to light,
dreaming of YOU it seemed I flew,
dark to light to dark to light.

Curving upward then swerving down,
light to dark to light to dark,
soothing, sensuous, swishing sound,
light to dark to light to dark.

Fooled by the notion of regular motion,
wooed by the wind in my face,
I laughed and cried to the same emotion,
unable to see that I swung in place.

Dark to light and back and forth,
Love swinging a pendular course,
dark to light to dark to light,
I soared ‘thru life a fool in flight.

Declaring Love I flew and dreamed,
dark to light to dark to light,
caring for you I flew it seemed,
dark to light to dark to light.

Then YOU screamed goodbye,
and screamed and screamed,
screaming silence in my ears;

and it was dark to dark,
only to dark,
dark … … … … … …

    Love it! It even follows the course of a song!

    If you play any instrument you would have it made. You already have the lyrics!
