Butterflies Never Leave

Don’t clutter up my mind

With the facts of yesterday

I want to move forward

With what my heart is telling me

You were good for me

And I think I was good for you

Why can’t we be us again

Forget the reasons it was over

Embrace the love that never left

My heart still wants you

It may be full of butterflies

But they only want to fly to you

Wanted

I wanted to laugh with you

You got serious

I wanted your friendship

You turned away

I wanted your heart

It was locked away

I wanted you in my future

The opportunity past

I wanted you to remember

It seems you never did

Flirting drew us to each other

Passion fueled us for a time

A deep friendship bonded us

It was a perfect forever

You and me

But things fell apart

You slowly disappeared

Until I was completely lost

Just tell me if you are done

Stop dragging my heart around

Fandango’s Friday Flashback – January 31

Another week has come and gone, so it is once again time for Fandango’s Friday Flashback (FFF).  This week I reach back two years to a post I did for the word prompt cavity.  I hope you enjoy it!

Hollow

I have a hole in my chest
A place where a heart once belonged
It is now an hollow cavity
An echo of love lost
For you took my heart with you
When you walked out the door
And I have felt nothing but emptiness
Since you left me alone

Silver-Tongued Devil

You always told me exactly what you wanted

You never were subtle with your needs

You told me once you wanted me

And I fell like a rock off a skyscraper

I did everything I could do for you

And some things I shouldn’t have

Then suddenly you turned around

You said you didn’t want me anymore

You said you shouldn’t have said those things

But it was too late

My heart was ripped to shreds

Too damaged for anyone else to love

And as broken and battered as it was

It still beats only for you

Fandango’s Friday Flashback – January 24

This week for Fandango’s Friday Flashback (FFF) I dug back in my posts to January 24th in 2018.  This was the poem, originally published here, that I wrote for the word prompt candid.

Confession

“I have to be candid,
I have to speak the truth,
I love you”
She said to him.
He only said “No.”
Her heart stopped
For a second
That seemed like an eternity.
“You haven’t known me
Long enough to love me”
He added.
She swallowed back tears
“I know what is in my heart”
She told him with renewed confidence,
And he breathed
A heavy sigh.
“You don’t have to say anything,
Just know that I love you”
She said in almost a whisper
And kissed him softly.
He reached out to hold her
And they slept in
Each others arms.

You and I

How fast or slow we go

Has got to be up to me

This is a decision

I don’t take lightly

For my heart in your hands

Must be handled with care

I know how fragile it is

Giving my love to share

So no speeding past

What I can handle

Treat me with the care

Of a burning candle

Left alone it can set

The whole place on fire

But held tight it can be

A gentle light to inspire

A to Z Challenge – Origami

#AtoZChallenge 2019 Tenth Anniversary badge

O is for Origami

I wish I was a paper folding wizard who could make all sorts of animals and flowers, stars and boxes.  I am not.  But I can fold a dollar bill into a heart.  Many years ago in a stamping magazine there was instructions to fold a dollar bill into a heart.  I jumped at the change to learn this.

It had step by step instructions that I poured over for hours and I finally got something that resembled a heart.  Now years down the line I can do it without instructions or pictures and use it often for gifts of money in wedding cards.

I have also folded a shirt once. And made a frog with origami squares.  But my favorite is still the heart.  I would love to learn more… only takes a little time and patience.

Chained To You

I never meant to love you

It just happened

Your kind manner

Your contagious smile

I just felt so at ease with you

You never encouraged it

But you didn’t discourage it either

And now what do I do

I want to be with you

To touch you

To consume you

To share every moment of bliss

But this world is not fair

And I’m just a fool

Who fell for the wrong one

At the wrong time

So I keep my heart in shackles

Hoping we will get our time

Someday…
