Here is a poem I wrote recently…
I wrote it while feeling very exhausted and a little under appreciated.
I believe that when we each feel that way, we must still carry on and give, and share, and love...but it doesn't hurt to carry an umbrella.
I long to be held in your arms
I dream of being held like a feminine gem
I dream of feeling one hundred percent secure and loved by my lover
I dream of being recognized in your arms for the precious soul that I am
Many lives before I have been beaten down
My spark crushed by the cruelness of mankind
My trust broken by selfish hearts
I dream of when I shall return to the land of dreams
Until then I must build my arms stronger
To hold my umbrella for longer
From the human race
I let go of my umbrella with you
I felt safe enough to bare my inner flame
I was wrong to let it down
I have let my flame get wet
I need time back in the Summerland to dry
And even though it’s caused me pain
I will let my umbrella down with you again
And feel the rain.
