Atlantic Crossing Inspiration

"I can tell by your eyes that you've probably been crying forever
and the stars in the sky don't mean nothing to you, they're a mirror,
I don't want to talk about it, how you broke my heart.
If I stay here just a little bit longer
If I stay here won't you listen to my heart...
If I stand all alone will the shadows hide the color of my heart,
blue for the tears, black for the night's fears..." (Rod Stewart)

The sorrow in your eyes betrays the evening skies
the stars shinning bright are nothing to you, alright,
the light in your eyes reaches deep into the night
illuminating possibilities that never seem to run dry.

When I imagined that you loved me, a contract signed
stating that your heart was only yours not really mine,
I accepted that, thinking it might be enough to heal me
of course, it was, it did, but in the long run only burned me.

Whom do I blame for that? No one twisted my arm,
You stayed as long as your heart allowed then you were gone,
now I'm just a bad dream, one that you used to wish upon,
a burned out star, a nova proving half life, flared up then it was gone.

"If I stay here just a little bit longer...
if i stay here won't you listen...
to my heart..."

    Love for people our age is as you have writen. I'm in it's tangled mess now. I don't want to say she won't listen.

    When we plant flowers we know they will not last forever but as long as they last our garden is a beautiful one. When they are gone we wish them to be with us so we wait till we plant new ones! I love this sad poem for its intensity and beauty of expression dear, Catie! Hugs xx
