The memories flood in,pastContinue reading “And So, I Escape”

I Swung From the Willow

I swung from the willow,so careless and free;from ground to air,her strong branches carried me. In the shade of the willow,our secrets we shared;two best friends just sitting,all frustrations were aired. We met at the willow,and smiled as we talked;somehow we returned there,whenever we walked.

I cannot climbthe mountain of despair,where snow-crested hills crumblein dark isolation. I will not follow youdown the dark and twisty streets,where shadows fall,and unseen eyes watch.Continue reading “Until You Return To Me”
