The Moment It Chafes

The moment chafes
Crinkling up my nostrils
Giving me…pause
When what I really need are paws
I’m in the open water this time
And my legs fight to float
Tweet, chirp, tweet
Must keep this bird in my box
Purr, meow, purr
A blow back so fierce
Ready or not here comes love
Living in a bell jar
My fingers have no traction
It’s a solitary solo
Will my screech crack the glass?

Run With Me

Take my hand, come ride with me,

Leave behind the world we bemoan.

Mount our steed, escape my plea.

It’s time this cage of a coop was flown.

Flee the terror of doubt’s gnawing seed.

Cast off the chains of wedded deceit.

Escape to each other, escape to be free.

Run, yes run, run with me.

Find solace, find a future so bright.

Settle, make a home in love to share.

Love me, hold me, hold me tight.

And together we’ll wake from our mutual nightmare. 

Flee the terror of doubt’s gnawing seed.

Cast off the chains of wedded deceit.

Escape to each other, escape to be free.

Run, yes run, run with me.

Eternity beckons, forever calls.

Eons of time has led to this point.

Courage so rare, we cannot stall.

The earth mother’s blessings will duly anoint.

Flee the terror of doubt’s gnawing seed.

Cast off the chains of wedded deceit.

Escape to each other, escape to be free.

Run, yes run, run with me.
