She’s Like the Wind

*Inspired by that song from that movie. Weirdly enough, I’ve never seen it. I was told to listen to the song though, and the inspiration kicked in.*

She’s like the wind lifting me to the skies.

A zephyr carrying my heart away.

It’s a struggle to look into her eyes.

Who could be worthy of her in that way?

Maybe I’m just a fool to think it’s me.

Every word she speaks melts me like the sun.

There is nowhere that I would rather be.

A goddess like her could have anyone.

She’s the storm and the calm that comes before.

When I hold her my heart begins to race.

I’m frozen in time but I still want more.

There’s no better feeling than her embrace.

I’m restless like the clouds that can’t be pinned.

She lifts my heart up because she’s the wind.

Yes, Tonight

*Feeling a spark with someone and wanting to go back to that first moment where the fuse was lit.*

When I see your face I can’t help but smile.

I’m comforted by the sound of your voice.

I only wish you could stay here awhile.

You in my arms would always be my choice.

I know happiness just thinking of you.

When you smile I know what heaven feels like.

Whenever I need it you’re right on cue.

When I think of you I feel my heart spike.

Sometimes I’ve felt like I should run away,

But I would rather hold you in my arms.

In the heat of the night we’ll dance and sway,

Without a care for the morning’s alarms.

Yes, I’ll never let go of you tonight.

When we’re together everything is right.

Say Anything…

*About newfound infatuation. Two very different songs helped influence this one. One from the movie the title is from.*

The light and the heat make me want to write.

The burning from your lips lights up my soul.

In your dark eyes I see heaven tonight.

Not closer to God but closer to whole.

Your smile has woken what’s dormant inside.

No anxiety nor fear can stop me.

My pain and my worries are cast aside.

With you in my arms I’m once again free.

No villain can take that relief away,

Nor could a failure from a broken past.

Not closer to God but I guess I’ll pray,

To find a way to make happiness last.

I feel real bliss when I look in your eyes.

The light and the heat that make my heart rise.

Yes

*Having an internal monologue about how you feel, and then finally telling them when they’re actually next to you.*

When I see your face I can’t help but smile.

I’m comforted by the sound of your voice.

I only wish you could stay here awhile.

You in my arms would always be my choice.

I know happiness just thinking of you.

When you smile I know what heaven feels like.

Whenever I need it you’re right on cue.

When I think of you I feel my heart spike.

Sometimes I’ve felt like I should run away,

But I would rather hold you in my arms.

In the heat of the night we’ll dance and sway,

Without a care for the morning’s alarms.

Yes, I’ll never let go of you tonight.

When we’re together everything is right.

The View

*about longing for someone who makes your world feel special*

When you look at me I feel my heart race.

I’m caught in a spell I just can’t escape.

I’m weak at the thought of a first embrace.

Gazing in your eyes makes my dreams take shape.

Your doe-like eyes send me to paradise.

I can touch heaven when I see your smile.

I never thought that I could feel so nice,

But next to you this world becomes worthwhile.

All I could want until the end of time,

Is you in my arms with your lips on mine.

To make it real I would make any climb.

Anything to make our hearts entwine.

Until that day I’ll just enjoy the view.

Visions of a future where I’m with you.

Build Back Better

*Voting in 2020*

We’ve come too far from where we started from.


In so much darkness we must be the light.


Onward together we must beat the drum.


We’ll make our voices heard and win this fight.


With love and peace we will walk with the wind.


We will march joyfully and spread the faith.


We will be asked where we were as hope thinned.


We’re the ones to find justice for the wraiths.


We fight for the people, with open hearts,


To build the Beloved Community.


Through compassion we’ll keep doing our parts,


To restore the nation towards unity.


We’ll vote for hope and a new hierarchy,


For a restored soul, without malarkey.

Solitude

*About missing someone you love and have to be separated from. The struggle to deal with the isolation while social distancing, because all you want is to see the person who makes you whole. And how they get you through it.*

As the world stands still you’re all I think of.

Am I selfish or do I simply care?

Night falls and all I do is look above.

It feels hard not to give in to despair.

All I want is to see your glowing face.

In solitude I’m losing track of time.

The longer we’re apart, the more I race,

Thinking of you as I hear the windchime.

Good spirits haven’t followed with the breeze.

Thoughts of seeing you are what set me free.

I’ve been longing to put your mind at ease.

In this disrupted world you’re all I see.

No matter the time that we’re kept apart,

You’ll always be here with me in my heart.

Journey

*Seeing someone at the start of New Year’s and picturing starting a new journey together.*

The clock strikes midnight and the sky glimmers.

Once again it’s time to start things anew.

When I see your face, hope starts to shimmer.

I see our start when I look at you.

You set off fireworks inside of my heart.

The sound of your voice sets my soul alight.

You’re more priceless than any work of art,

With a perfect smile that always shines bright,

And beautiful eyes that leave me spellbound.

The butterflies you cause fill me with hope.

It’s your heart that makes me want you around.

At this point, I’m yours in an envelope.

I’m sealed shut and waiting to be set free,

To start a new journey where you’re with me.

Clueless

*When you’re thinking about someone and unsure about how they feel. Thinking you’re sure about how you feel. Not knowing what they want.*

Most nights I’m just not quite sure what to think.

I look out the window and hear your voice.

It sounds close yet far but never in sync.

The words I hear don’t seem to be your choice.

I wonder if I’m only wasting time.

Or if time just means you’ll be by my side.

With mountains between us, I want to climb.

I just hope you’ll come along for the ride.

I feel chemistry but we’re worlds apart.

I want to know if you feel the same spark.

That voice in the night is holding my heart.

My own words seem to echo in the dark.

I’m restless and don’t seem to have a clue.

Another night and I’m thinking of you.


Sivvy

*I was reading some Plath quotes even though she isn’t someone I’m normally that into. This is a twist on my typical writings with inspiration from the quotes and from Lady Lazarus.*

Seeing your face fills me with desire,

With hopes of what might kill me in the end.

Love worth throwing myself in the fire.

A love that makes a damaged heart ascend.

I expected nothing but feel it all.

All I want is to cling to this feeling,

Writhing in sweet pain waiting for your call.

I’m wounded but you make it appealing.

When we first locked gazes you took my soul.

I questioned every aspect of my life

Without you by my side I can’t feel whole.

Without you I can only dwell in strife.

I never thought I would fall into you.

My heart is yours for all we will go through.
