knock knock

I am so taking in by your wonderful talk You come up upon my door and carefully knock I dance all along strings as I carefully walk Closer to your waiting arms I skillfully stalk And I listen so carefully to whatever you say It’s so good to love somebody close every day As the twinkling in the stars, carefully play Any song I can fall in love with, takes me away And in this situation I so carefully weigh Never does me any good to not ever get away Life is so full of adventures living every day But I think being in love is my favorite way It’s been so long since I got so carried away That’s why it’s not difficult for me to say I will always be in love with you, every day It’s so wonderful you came here from so far away Lay your hand upon my heart and carefully knock I always let you in as you skillfully walk Lines you draw with your eyes quietly talk I see it’s so peaceful here, away I never will walk I wait so patiently for you with the tick talk of a clock For your fingers on my heart to carefully walk Some secret about being in love I can’t unlock Don’t make me wait so long next time you knock

Just love this Cynthia & I do see one tiny tweak that will make this PERFECT. First, the rhythm, stress, beat are just lovely. I like that IT HAS a storyline (not all do) and we can all relate to that amazing feeling of falling in love. This took us all back or reminded us of what we still have as blessings. TWEAK- you have set yourself the task of rhyming with THE SAME end rhyme sound. Murderous task! You ONLY departed on vrs. 4, last line,TALK(away,say,day,talk).

Cynthia: I have read your "Best" and some of the rest. My experience was "intense". I'm a silly rhymer so it's difficult to read so much "truth". Thank you for sharing your work with us on the soup. oldbuck
