Ten Years

Ten years to go he told me so 
But that was last May wasn't it

Though my heart still beats all the while
Still the blood rushes up from down below

And I get sweaty and can not speak as though 
It were yesterday he touched me so sweet
I felt safe and secure with him like inside a womb  

I watched for him over long days on end
Though I could not see for the earth did not move

I thought I saw a glimpse of him 
Moving towards me

But that was ten years ago 
They told me so

    WEnt way back to see this one and it really has me curious to know the subject of this poem and if anything ever came of this person? About Cinder Girl. You asked me if it won anything ? That is a thrilling story for me. When I first came here in 2010, they were still having the International contests every four months or so. It was my FIRST year here and Cinder Girl WON!!! I was beyond words. Thanks for reading that poem of mine. Luv, Andrea
