safe

safe

A Poem by Lydia Shutter

the sky moves seductively
in shades of gold, pink, and orange
i see your forever blue eyes peek out from a cloud

time seems blurred on days like this
some would say i am tethered to the past
others might think i have raced haphazardly into the future
but i know i am right now…in the moment

i must tend to my bruises
set the lingering pain free
words will be my medicine
till i feel safe between the lines of my poetry
almost as safe as i felt in your arms.

This was lovely. Some say we shouldn't exist in the moment. I say what else is there? We do what needs to be done and get on with the business of living while we can. If we can pen some of it down in words to share, all the better. I enjoyed the read. F.

I need to read daily to keep my sanity. I liked your words and thought dear Lydia. Some of us need words and song to keep us going forward. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

This is really beautiful and I Iove that your feminine voice appreciates your safe space for healing.
Too often we never take the time to do that. 💛

Yup, the flesh is transitory but love is eternal, and a lover sorely missed gone physically but his/her presence heartens the soul,and so I write poetic knowing prophetic words shall reach you, my love, unil we meet again ...

to "feel safe between the lines of my poetry/ almost as safe as i felt in your arms"

when we write poetry I think we could be in the past, present and future all at once...
You say it all here when you say "words will be my medicine"---

There are places safety is hidden away for only safety's sake - and beautiful it is, of course. But the most gloriously welcome safety is in the company of someone special.. who understands why, when, where, how and all else how it is to be you..

Your poetry is beautiful.
