Poetry Corner – “First Winter”

“First Winter”

Beautiful snowflakes from the sky
Covering everything in untainted white
The cold was so clean
The white was so infinite
Oh tell me, did you know that was my first time?

Huddled together, you and me
Trying to trap the escaping heat
The wind hastily swirling
As if telling us we had to depart
Oh tell me, do we have to leave our paradise?

We can’t make the Sun stand still
But we can make time run
We can make time run
And be together again

The sun peeks over the skyline
Letting the golden light into our lives
And I could see
The tears in your eyes
Oh tell me, did you know I couldn’t bear to say goodbye?

Watching you go from my window
I can’t quite shake the cold
Wishing I had your hand to hold
Oh tell me, did you know I wanted to be a snowflake?
(Swirling on the wind, able to be free)
Till I found you again

We can’t make the Sun stand still
But we can make time run
We can make time run
And be together again

Poetry Corner – “Are We in Love?”

 

“Are We in Love?”

Saturdays, summer days spent in seclusion
Wasting away our lives in this delusion
Saving face, amazing grace, where will this lead?
Tell me, but maybe, you don’t know the seed
Of this life-plaguing eventuality
Where do we go when faced with reality?

So now I’m forced to make the inquiry
Are we in love?
It seems our wedded bliss just a fantasy
Are we in love?

Untrue, who knew our love was unreal
The thing that grew was hunger’s zeal
Wasted time on lies, what do we do?
Thru my eyes I only find choices a few
I gotta save my life; death won’t suffice
Leaving you’s the only thing right

So now I’m forced to make the inquiry
Are we in love?
It seems our wedded bliss just a fantasy
Are we in love?

Floating, we are here on a vast sea
Until we cast out love to memory
So say goodbye to pretending to love me

Saturdays, summer days being on my own
Spending time, just getting by all alone
Saving face, amazing grace, where will I go?
To myself true everything I do till my life is done
Cast out love to memory
So say goodbye to pretending to love me

You were not in love
