I think maybe winter has set in for good, it seems I cannot shake the chill and the winds howling makes it colder still. maybe this is a reflection of my inner self, living in the winter of my life, waiting anticipating when spring will bring new life and blossoms to myself. how long I wonder can one live in the winter before life after is no longer in the future, but a passing memory of time

The winds were howling outside my window as I awoke this morn
an omen or a cleansing I pondered

No snows yet this day, but they say they will not hold at bay
a forecast or another lie, I pondered

*laughing* What do I write today of my thoughts?

Sometimes there are so many questions racing through my mind, I'm not sure which way to travel. You know I keep trying to figure out who I am, searching for Me.

trail your finger across my cheek
experience my softness
explore my tender flesh.

touch your lips to mine,
wrap me in a warm embrace
feel my body pressed against yours

My heart lightly beats against yours
tenderness entraps me.
Surrounding us.

although we are so close
My heart yours
will you ever know me
