A Chapter by Lyn Anderson
"

promises and truths unspoken

"
paper confessions

when I wrote you

into that first line,
I had already
written you
into my heart.

lost and found

belting out a country tune
at the top of my lungs
driving in my car--
glancing in the rearview,
smiling, thinking of you ...

you helped me find
the me I was
before we ever met.






a well of hope

wishes in a well
of wondering
what you mean
when you tell me
"I notice more than I say" ...

I only hope
those things
you notice
are the things
that make you
want to stay.

A new relationship has plenty of questions, but if it makes you feel young and carefree and totally yourself....it is the right relationship to invest your time into. I liked all three of these...and I could hear you belting out a country song! :) Lydi**

Thanks, that is exactly the feeling I wanted to get across.:)
This is a different approach, at least to me. Something which should have been considered. Anyways, I especially like the third part.

I can see. I tend to bounce from one thought to another!
Love the part: "you helped me find the me I was before we ever met." It's different from what you always hear about needing love to be a better person, instead love helps you discover and love the person you already were

Thanks, that is sometimes what love can be.:)
i love these pieces - especially 'paper confessions' and the second stanza of 'a well of hope' - i think, 'though that the second piece needs some more work to get it 'there', other than that, these are inspiring poems

Check out the revision of 2 -- I like it a lot better. Thanks.
can I just smile with you on this poem KL..

oh and if he doesn't stay, I will just have to personally examine his head and see what is inside... but from the voice in your poem, it sounds like he will only leave to go pick up milk and the dry cleaning type stuff.. and maybe your heart since it seems you have lost it to him for safe keeping...

it's a really sweet poem KL, please do not mind my small footsteps in itg...
