Sometimes, The World, Just Spins Away
Author: ShyHeart


Sometimes, the world, just spins away, far beyond my grasp
I see, black and white, but, mostly, I see gray, as my private
Thoughts, come over me, seems the power comes, when, Iím alone
Without reason, I welcome, its arrival, Iím so, confused

How can life be black and white, but, all I see is gray
Does the answer, lie inside of me, if, so, why do I reach
To touch places, where my heart and soul, have never been
Is, this a search for wisdom, or a cry for help? I, feel so, gray

The answer is inside of you, l who have a heart and soul
All who have ever cried, when, a baby cried, or saw the
Very special toy, underneath the Christmas tree, and cried
When, Grand-Pa died, he always wrapped his arms, around me

Now, that Iím older, no, I didnít say wiser, but I remember
Our Christmas tree, and the skating rink, where, I had, such fun
And, I remember, when, my life was black and white, no day or night
Sometimes, the world, just spins away, far beyond my grasp.

ďSometimes, The World, Just Spins AwayĒ

Martin,your words are absolutely beautiful...

i know this very feelin' many times as i close my eyes and dream of the love in my life a very special man, i feel him breathing softly upon my neck , i feel his lips upon mine, i feel his touch upon my hips and i love it..once i open my eyes i'm knocked back into reality and my love dissapears
yet i know he is there..the answer lies in my i wait patiently for him..this was very penetrating, i see/read poetry a bit different then most, i wrap every word around my my heart reads it...thats just me...

Terrie & Megan, Loving On Solid Ground...,

Terrie & Megan,

Yes, I know, I am slow to respond to your comments, but, they do not go ingnored. Yes, life is a test, of who we love, what really has importance, as we try to make sense, of every day's trails and contest. Here is my best answer, if, you have love, in your heart that you, yourself respect, you are loving on, solid ground.
Life will not spin away from you, but, around you!
Name:                                           Remember Me
