the beginning felt solid to me, like tasting another day with choice
       and i am a drifter, one sifting as sand   (not in an hourglass)     
                 i am free like the wind,
                            so-     this feeling i didn’t understand,
                                           how could i?
                 
      i’m not one “planted by the rivers of water” 
                  nestled beside a firm tree
                                
    
          suddenly: i pause and stare, completely unaware
                                  that somehow in this reality - 

                    you would attempt to manipulate my voice,
                         change my shape and mold me
   
                                       don’t you dare!!!
                                 
                 quickly: 
            become aware, that sand does not belong in your hand
                                    (a feeling you better comprehend)

If we try to control we lose the ecstasy of losing control.

In moments of ecstasy, sometimes being in control is exciting. Just sayin'. Thank you Richard. :) Brandy

Just a little insight on this emotion. You are right Son of Spock, she wants a connection- but does not want controlled. I appreciate you. Thank you. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and week ahead. ~ Brandy

To truly love someone one must allow them the freedom to think and speak for themselves; to manipulate and control them is a sign of insecurity, in my opinion. The ink from you pen flows golden, B. All the best my dear friend. Hugs, John

Your thoughts hold so much truth. There are many in world under the control of another. Which isn't love!! Of any kind. Thank you John for leaving your heart-print upon my words. You are appreciated. ~ Brandy

In this case: Sand is the Individual. God gives us free will. Man likes to be in control. Balance is needed. Thank you Rico for placing your thoughts on this scribble of mine. ~ Brandy

As beautiful as ever, the final lines really took me away with this piece. I could actually feel the wet sand slipping between my fingers. Really nice Brandy.
