If only I could stay and hide,

If only I could stay and hide ...

                                                    Authored by Chuck Keys         

If only I could stay and hide,
Inside a fragrant red rose, soft and true,
Smooth as air, warm as the summers day,
With no fear or wear and tear.

If only I could stay and hide,
Inside a drop of water, crystal clear and pure,
Quietly encased yet able to view all there is,
Where definition is soft and pliable.

If only I could stay and hide,
Inside a piece of chocolate, delicious and free,
Surrounded by its sweet and tender aroma,
Charitable in its feelings of sensual luxury.              

If only I could stay and hide,
If only I could…
If only....

    Nice sensitive work. Kind of "back to the womb" sort of thing. I love it, dream of it, but am too damn old to assume the foetal position. Love, Dave

    Stay and hide. I like hiding in my bed it's my soft, warm place. When I was a kid it was this tree in my front yard. The higher up I went the more I disappsred. Love this one Chuck.
