Paper Boat

Nae's Nest —  May 1, 2012 — 1 Comment

His eyes so unusual, can’t help but stare

Something about him tells me beware

He offers to guide me as I travel

I am uneasy, feeling rattled

He is sexy and hot to the touch

Is this a warning, revealing too much

What do I do, leave or stay

My mind says leave, but my heart craves

His hair, silver lining of the clouds

His voice gentle and kind, not very loud

He has a beard the color of the moon

He sings a song, a delightful tune

Lyrics floating down the trail

Birds chime in, musical sail

In a boat made of paper

Am entranced, in a vapor

I’ve am smitten by this man

Wherever he leads, I take his hand

Forgive me please, if I’ve made a mistake

I pray my soul will be safe

I can no longer walk, too weak to fight

He carried me as if, feather light

A paper boat sailing to the stars

Taking me away someplace far

I look at this man with his golden eyes

With him I am safe, my decision wise

No more pain

no more tears

No more sorrow

no more fears

This chapter is closed

Turn the page

A new one is opened

Smelling of sage

A new beginning

With a fresh start

In a paper boat

I depart

I find myself "Dancing With Cancer", problem is...I can't dance. I stumble, bumble, and get pulled along. To keep my sanity, (humor me), I write short stories, a journal, musings and poetry....just about anything goes.

    Very lovely imagery, Nae.
