u muse me

u muse me

A Poem by Lyn Anderson

collective love notes


Somewhere between unrealised expectations

and your kitchen counter,

we met --


It wasn't anything we recognised

we imagined

might be ...


Somewhere between want and need

we both found something

entirely new --


It wasn't what we thought

It was

so much more …

Lying beside you in the dark

I wonder the words

you hide inside your heart -

but only sometimes ...

Most times,

 I am just happy

you're here with me

Sunshine morning feeling 

whispers of him inside her

Wondering sometimes if

her love is enough -

Always standing on the edge

looking over -

Does he 

want more ...

than she can give


than she can be? 

His to lose

 and hers to set free

A heart that found 

more in him

Than every certain possibility

There are times 

when hesitation

seems like the final 


Stalled out,

I lost myself 

In an unsolvable 


Meeting you 

was the leap toward 

my heart's true

Thank u nice to see you
"his to lose and hers to set free"
thematically, although 4 separate pieces, they link together in a similar theme...finding love without looking...without trying to force it...
and words not really not necessary...just being with....in comfortable silence.
that is all we need.
so good to read you again, Lyn.

thank you for stopping in again. I always appreciate your thoughts.

You have the incredible ability to make your reader believe you are writing just for them... or at least, wish you were.... I note you slipped an extra one in here.... x4 for the price of one... cheers...
