• Lost Love


    it’s been so long
    I thought I’d be strong
    that’s’s just the way it is
    sometimes I’m alright
    sometimes in the night
    I wish I could see you again
    a shell of bright blue
    against an eclipse of alone
    I’ve always been a dreamer
    dreaming is not
    what you are about
    so I’ll just recycle
    some second hand dreams
    for the both of us
    I know that love is a game
    my heart is not the same
    the memory is fanning the flame
    so I stand in line
    for my heart to die
    I look for someone new
    but no one
    looks like you

    if I ever said that I know
    where there is a small cabin in the Snowy Mountain Range
    where you can watch the Elk graze
    warm the chill with a
    potbellied stove
    a heavy quilt
    a glass of Brandy
    and listen to the sound of
    absolutely nothing
    would you ever
    meet me

    Desperado... why don't you come to your senses, you been out riding fences... etc. If I were going to make a mistake "F. L. honey" then I would do it out there where, as Teardrops states, "you can hear a fly cough" with some crazy poetry writing cowboy like you.

    Teardrops commented on heartache


    If she doesnt join you there she is crazy . I have a fishing pond blocked from the wind and when you have your line in the water its so quit you can here a fly cough marie



    SO quiet you can hear a fly cough!! Sounds like the makling of a poem to me...Train

    Hello again T-64. Finally had a morning that I could sit back and read some fine poetry this morning. Been a couple weeks since I had time to spend and decided to catch up on all you have placed on here this month. Enjoyed them all and got a good feel for the life you've led, places you've been, loves you've had, and what your aching for again. After catching up with your work, it inspired me to try to put down in pen a 30 yr old story of mine intitled "Painful Gifts" on my site. Blessings, W.



    W, So glad you that you are up and about..Thanks for the nice words.. I'll def read Painful Gifts.. Take Care and Blessings to you..Lane
