Flying High

by Nichole Shannon

Where a heart was once empty and torn,
an other fills the void and heals the wounds.

A newly reborn soul now filled by the warmth
flies free in the clouds.

No boundaries, no limits, no confines to contain it.
Its wings spread wide and catch the rising warmth.

The heart drifts upwards to the distant heavens.
Carrying the soul to meet its mate.

They meet in the heavens,
soaring above the world together at last.

Two hearts as one soaring towards infinity.
Two souls bound and flying free.

Nikki’s Dream

Please god let this be real… she whispers softly.

Her pillows piled high against her, she softly cuddles with them.

She could only think of her lover, imagining they were together.

Two lost souls reaching out to each other.

She embraces the pillows harder.

Her soft flesh pressing into the fabric.

Longing for warmth and a tender touch.

Longing for the heartbeat beating against her bosom.

Softly, silently she whispers her lover’s name.

Drawing from her dreams she gently fades into the night.

Embracing her lover a thousand miles away.

All the love and all the promises

Today my love you are taking away the memories.
Today my love you pack a life we made together.
All those dreams and hopes.
All the love and promises.

Today my love marks the end of a dream.
Today my love our parting tears into my flesh.
All the fun and all the good times.
All the love and all the promises.

Today my love we split our lives.
Today my love we go our separate ways.
All the romance and all the intimacy.
All the tears and all the warmth.

Two lives bound together now pulled apart.
Two pieces in the whole.
A union of hearts ours no more.
All the love and all the promises.

My lover is gone.
Never again will we hold one another.
Never again will these to halves be together.
All the love and all the promises.

These tears are for you.
