Take Me Away

Hold me tonight

keep me in sight

let me not escape

don’t allow me be prey

take me away

let me not fall in love again

Hug me tight

confine me if you might

let me not run astray

don’t allow me be prey

take me away

let me not fall in love again

  1. while her fingers,
    entwined with mine;
    her warm breaths
    teased my, restraints.
    and while her, heart
    adjusted to the
    spaces between,
    my heartbeats;
    she, with quivering lips,
    punctuated her sighs
    with lies, and said
    don’t let me,
    fall in love

    WoW!!! beautiful…….loved this!!! 🙂 🙂


      1. Perhaps, and most likely, to your spirit self – what some would call your higher self. However, that is logical and there could be many other answers – as many as there are people even 🙂


        1. You’re right, Ian. To the writer, it’s a close friend, perhaps, a soul mate, someone the protagonist can’t imagine life without.
          It surely can mean a lot of different things to different people. 🙂

              1. Ahah, don’t go there. I refrain from diving in that well. Bdw, someone asked me why am I so negative about love and I replied I don’t have problems with love, I have problems with what people have made of love… what’s your prob?


                  1. I find family love more like Stockholm syndrome. And I am making this statement based on my experience ofliving away from family. I don’t know :). Everyone has a definition of love, for me it was concept, so I penned it in form of conversation..
