I would like to fly away - - -

To soar, take wing, take flight, glide ~ Be detached, apart from this life's reality Where past sorrows shroud my remembering To seal the heavy door to the past And to flutter on the edge of dreams To tremble, hover, grasping, peaceful and happy In imagination, floating and drifting Like a breathtaking butterfly with gossamer wings But then, but then ~ The cold fingers of the past come creeping Monsters, ogres, beasts of the long ago Memories screaming, shrieking, shattering my soul The beautiful lost in the carnage Oh the tears, the weeping, the eternal floating sadness The heavy door to the past is bolted, secure Impenetrable with many padlocks and thick chains Where anguish and bliss entwine in an endless battle And happiness died long, long ago But from time to time, whispering A single memory finds a way From under that weighty door locked, chained And I crush the sweetness to my broken heart, weeping . . .

    Dear Constance,Dear Heart, Hope this finds YOU and YOURS Healthy and High in the Spirit. I feel the pain of memories, YOU bring tears to my eyes as I can feel the sorrow in YOUR Heart with this Marvelous MasterPiece.I do wish I had seen YOUR contest earlier so I could write an entree, but as fast as it is filling up I would not make it in time.

    I hope your heart is not still broken weeping etc. Beasts of the long ago. I like that line. They do have a way of moving in and out of the shadows . Be good to you.

    Your poetry is always weighed with your heart. How can one not feel the pain, and the emotion as you write and pour your soul into each line? As always....outstanding poetry!

    There are days at which I would like to fly away too, those days when I couldn't do anything right, when there is a lot of pain in my life! I do know how you feel because I've been there before, I might not be there now, but I have been there in the past my friend! I could just imagine the pain that has to be within ones heart to write such as this, and I feel for you Constance, I hope you are doing better...It always helps to write about it though! We are always here for you! Great Work!!

    Constance, Life can't be that grim. I even smiled at this, just knowing you had written again! Please tell Linda I wish her well and keep writing! RAY

    Oh, Constance, even the title made me sad. and the poem itself only made the sadness worse, until my heart was actually aching for you, and tears welled up in my eyes. I pray for your happiness. Love and hugs, Catie PS~ will check out your contest...check out mine! :)
