Kids go down
The slide…they head toward the swings

Their parents want to go home

We exchanged harsh words...
I let you walk out that door
without a goodbye

- The time flies - and I fly with it -

                                                My mirror
                                 it shows me a middle-aged lady
                                                Who is it?

The very first time

By: Miranda Lambert
For: Michael Falotico’s contest “Eyes First Meet”

Simple as a glance
Turns two stares entwined
Distant, unknown, yet conjoined

Seduced by my eyes
Your temptation begins to sting
Denial no longer and option

End with a burning kiss
Indulging fever from our lips
Caressing that love into today

splash of yellow hues winking across a black mat breaths dance with stardust light folds drenched eyelids skins under quilt of twilight ~ lullaby the moon
