Poem - Me and my hammock ...

Though you're long gone,
I still see you

and though its been years,
I can still hear your laughter

Though happy days are long gone,
I still see us together

and though its been years,
I can still feel the warmth

I can no longer pretend
That everything's allright
When its not

I can no longer pretend
That I've forgotten you
When I've not

You were all I ever wanted
You were all I ever had
And now,
Your memories are all I have
and your memories are all I hold dear

So I'm going to break the promise I made
The promise I made to myself
The promise to forget everything
The promise to move on

I am just going to lie here ...
... lie here forever
This cozy hammock of memories I have,
... will do just fine ...

-----
This was done in one sitting ... I know it needs a lot of work ... but kinda describes a state I was in a couple of months back ... am no longer in any hammock ... am too busy ... :)

Have a gr8 weekend ya all!!!

it's been sometime since i've seen a new post! you're really busy huh?

Well, at times when we want to move on, the hammock keeps us there, for it is comforting and comfortable but we often did not see the potential danger of a hammock.

take care. God Bless ya.
