The One Who Got Away

In rain and thunder
Wind and hail
You stand there. Still
Forlorn, ghastly pale

Your sunshine gone
Your hope deplete
The absolute antithesis of
Complete

My treasure trove
Mercilessly plundered
My wings so clipped
My soul now barren

My will you will not
Cannot sway
Please just accept
I’m the one who got away

This is the final post for this Tandem series.  Please check out what Celeste and Chevone have dished for this week.

Fading

Into the backdrop of space and time
Fading
Drifting

Into the roaring waves pulling…
Drawing me
Deeper

Into a galaxy beyond that which we know
Sinking
Reaching

Out from the abyss of that which is
Fading
Save me

From the ever depressing mire
You break me
As I’m fading

Into you

This is the third installment in a Tandem Blog Series by Celeste of Surviving Jonkersville, Chevone of Chev’s Life and myself.  Thank you for taking the time to read our scribbles.  We’ll be back with another installment next Thursday at 1pm.

(This week we were challenged to go to Page 51 of a random book and start our piece with the last line/sentence of the page.  Our book is PLAYBOYSKOOL (How to Get Pull and Get Laid) by Nick Starr. “Let’s roll…”)

Let’s roll…
Roll along the highways and byways
Of our connected cosmos…
Along the murky way of life.

Let’s roll in and out of the technicolour swirl…
The kaleidoscope of culture and creed…
Roll the identity of you and I
Into us and we.

Let’s roll all our differences into an unreserved common…
Common dialogue, common thought,
Common goal…Common humanity.

Let’s roll away the tumbleweed
Of cultural insecurity…
Roll the identity of you and I
Into us and we.

What do you say?
Will you roll with me?
Let’s aid our future
By changing our present…
Together.

C’mon…Let’s roll!

This is the second installment in a Tandem Blog Series by Celeste of Surviving Jonkersville, Chevonne of Chev’s Life and Shelley…that’s me.  Thank you for taking the time to read.  We’ll be back with another installment next Thursday at 1pm.
