Love: Just an Illusion? #oneshotwednesday

Words she wrote reached into his heart He heard them somehow Unspoken words her  art Or…  just an illusion? *** She thinks he must be a dream How will she know? “what does it mean?” Is he …  just an illusion? *** silent pleas go into the night He feels her words This seems so […]

Holding Your Heart #oneshotwednesday

Can’t protect you against the storm in it’s rage but I can hold your heart * I can’t shield you from the flaming suns rays but I can hold your heart * Can’t keep your boat Safe from harm So it won’t capsize But I can hold your heart * I can’t keep The ugliness […]

Tattered and Torn #oneshotwednesday #abuse

Crouched in the corner lights graze my form front and center small, faded, forlorn *** What do they want? no warmth, only spite peering and prodding no “endless delight” *** Sucking the color pulling apart perfectly aimed at the center of my heart ** Any one there? a moment to share reach out a hand […]

Her Soft Caress to my Heart

~She~ Hold me for a moment feel my warm breath against your neck hear me whisper (something) softly in your ear ~He~ I held her and felt the faintest movement of air I turned and knew her words were a soft caress on my heart ❤ *

A glimpse of hope

It was broken so was she but a piece was still remaining That small shard reflected life hope possibilities maybe even a future *** “Oh ” she sighed as she picked up a piece of her heart there it is me! *** It was soft vulnerable it’s true but it was still beating
