Tonight I Will Get Away....
Author: Terrie*


I need to go away
I need to find my soul
for just one day
I need to find myself

I need to get away
I need to know what to do
I need to learn what is true
I need to set my heart straight

I need to get away
I need to set my soul free
I need to understand
I need to put my heart on hold

tonight I will get away
tonight I will stay away
tonight I must stay away
tonight God will help me
find my way
and maybe love can truely find me....

------- Author's Notes -------

confused about the past/present /future adds strain on ones heart a few simple words can tell us what we need to know.. eliminates the pain we need not go through..

It's so hard to try and live in the past, present, and future...scared to stay behind, scared to stand where you are, and scared to move on. I truely know how you feel, i have been there, and I find myself still there at times....Great poem!!!

Needing time to be alone, to think your thoughts out loud, about the 4-letter word eh? Good going... Like you and Tammy said, you want to press fast forward, but your fingers get numb, in which you're too afraid... It's almost like shifting gears in an automobile.... Just never press neutral, then you'll be in the same spot, in years to I understand now Miss T! Wonderful job! Smiles, Meridian

yea i really need several days of solitude, yikes, yeap the love bug bit me real hard in the heart the 2nd time around ..i feel like i'm 16 all over again. i still fel the need to do some deep soul searching involving my most personal innermost feelings, God i love this man..and i do not want to...mess up i have my weaknesses, i'm only human..i'm female at that too..i have enjoyed my freedom for so long..i want to be loved , but...i'm free spirited ,i hope he allows me to keep my own personal space.....alot of adjustments to go thru the biggest is my attitude. haha thanx for understanding..i hope he understands..i will return at a later time. i'm enjoying this time to myself.
