Wasn't to be

It wasn't what I thought ~at all
There was no writing on the wall
It seemed to want to be held
It shone so bright
I was under its spell

The red that glowed
Seemed to fill the room
All from a flowers bloom?

But as I approached
To breathe in the sight
I noticed a dimmer light

Thorns drawn
Blood flows
Everyone had to know?
All but me
It wasn't to be
This rose was for Another

Or, was this how it's to be?
Capture me in your beauty
Fill my senses with your perfume
Ask me to reach for you
Then open up a wound?

I will go
And leave you here
If it's another you wait for.
But know~ 
I will heal
And we may meet again
But your beauty, 
for me,
Will have faded by then.





Fight nature?

I wrestled with the wind
After awhile 
I knew I had lost.

The ocean was of no help at all
It too only pushed me around.
Nothing left in the palm of my hand
Another fight lost

I yelled at the clouds
But they only laughed and ran away
I screamed at the sun
It fried me!

I tried to move a mountain
It wouldn't fight back
I kicked at the rocks
They stumbled away
They too didn't want to stay.

As night wrapped around me and stole my fight
I gave into its selfish plight.
"Tomorrow will be better," it said
You can't be angry any more
You no longer even know
What you are fighting for.

I allowed the breeze to take my revenge
The stars then danced for me
"Everything isn't what it seems"
I let these words settle in
As I laid my head against the stone

The wind came back to cool me
The oceans mid-night roar, soothed me
They were right
There are reasons to stay and fight
And there are reasons to let go

Which ever is decided
All I need to know
Be brave, stand tall, stay true
Nature will run its course
And Nature always wins.
