not going anywhere

not going anywhere

A Poem by Lyn Anderson
"

on late nights with you

"
afraid to fall

the words that roll
so easily
off my tongue
for others
are not so simple
after all.
not because
I don't feel them
but because
I am afraid
to fall.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For now with you is better than all the forevers who came before ...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your blanket

It isn't that I
don't feel it
in every cell --
I know it.

I am so afraid
to say it,
wrapped in blankets
at your feet.

you say you aren't
going anywhere;
those words are bigger
than this particular night.

you are my
nearly everything
that makes sense,
that feels right.

you didn't have to
but you did,
for me,
like you always do.

because that's the only way
you know how to be.

"because that's the only way you know how to be" that last stanza really nails it in. I loved this piece so much! Nicely penned

Interesting trilogy. I love the simplicity and the rhyme of the third. And the first, where the person that they just are is what you want or need.

Lyn, I feel as though the progression is a little jarring. What if the first and third were switched?

Then the second, a thought thst is both romantic and pragmatic (really a contradiction), acts as a bridge.

Well penned as always.

You are probably right. I posted them exactly as I wrote them, with no edits. It probably does sound.. read more
