Shhh!

Shhh!
These lips are for but one person,
the light in my eyes, his alone;
these ears they yearn
for his voice on the phone

Shhh!
The flash of colour in my hair,
a distraction for all to see,
my thoughts, my warmth I keep for him,
when I perch myself upon his knee.

Shhh!
Tell me not of my outward beauty,
that, everyone can plainly see;
He doesn’t want what everyone can have…
He simply desires who I am, simply me…

This is it

This is it…

I’ve reached the end of the fabled line,
been around the block…
done my time.

The God’s have spoken, issued a decree,
“Your time is up!
Now… be free”

But I want to live, and want to Love!
Or is that selfish?
A wish to Love?

I want the chains, the trappings of life,
not freedom of death,
A bond to life.

“My time was short…”, “No, it was enough,
’twas your choice to live
off the cuff”

Those choices reflect what’s then to be,
what might be regretted
for eternity.

This is it.
