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

Mouth of Hell

Nae's Nest —  April 8, 2012 — 1 Comment

Turn back, turn back!
Don’t tell me it’s too late
Darkness surrounds me
This is my fate
*
Spirits are closing in
Many of them evil
Trying to get me
Their venom is lethal
*
Pirating my vessel
Flowing in my veins
Unwanted aliens
They have me restrained
*
I’ve reached the end
Of this realm
Alien spirit
At the helm
*
The waters open
I see the mouth of hell
Tumbling down
My fear swells
*
Into hell’s mouth
An endless fall
I hear the teeth
Gnashing a call
A gruesome welcome
Into this pit
Dear Lord
How do you see fit
*
To send me here
As a believer
Why condemn
You are my Savior
*
Heaven’s hand
Reached down to me
Calming
He heard my plea
*
He said I am
To bear witness
To testify
To address
*
Telling all who 
Need to hear
Hell is real 
It will sear
*
The flesh 
Off the bone
Please repent 
Make Heaven home
