She saves me every time.
Slowly I sink I keep grasping But there’s nothing to hold on to Lost in open water Overwhelmed by its torment My mind’s drowning Lost control under the surface Looking up, I watch as above me The waves crash all around
Gasping for a breathe I lost my clarity I can’t seem to hear Panic rings through my head My eyes keep searching My arms keep grasping My legs keep trying But slowly I sink Tired I’m trying not to let go With bloodshot eyes I’m fighting to stay alive
Taking another look up I saw the sunlight How majestically it shined With bright rays that hit the water A lighted tunnel almost like a guide I picture your face Your eyes telling me you need me I see your smile It wraps & warms me like a blanket I can almost hear your laughter I picture you at play I remember the first day I held you The promise I made you that day
Determined not to sink Forcing myself to act Mustering the strength Giving it one more shot Closing my eyes Arms abreast I pushed forward And pushed forward Finally breaking the surface Jumping out of a dream Waking up in a sweat
I looked in on you sleeping Thinking…. Even in dreams you tend to save me Smiling, I listened to you breathing Kissed your forehead Then your rosy cheeks Once Twice And another just because
Born Jamaican, residing in Florida: A creative soul, determined to make the most of my life each day.
I love to write but I'm an emotional writer so I write what/when I feel. Music is my greatest inspiration, it doesn’t matter the genre.
I have a daughter, My Muse, My Arianna who is growing up faster than I can keep up, she's constantly guarding my heart & lighting my life.
I’m a Shoe Whore and an Adventurer so I’m constantly on the move, [sometimes I feel if I stop, the world revolves around me in slow motion, matrix style]. I’m always looking for an adrenaline rush *if it can be climbed, i will climb it or jump off it*
I love learning new things ~so im a sucker for trying anything atleast once.
I try to not let people or things complicate me, when life hands out the lemons, I grab some tequila, salt, my pen/paper & write it all away..
So thank you for stopping in and checking out my pages, I hope there is something here for everyone, don't forget to let me know what you think.
