Tongue TiedTongue Tied.Tongue Tied by Lorisarrd
Of love I do speak,
I speak of it often,
But I don't know the right words,
To keep you by my side.
I write often of desire,
It haunts my written words,
But I have lost the right words,
The words to draw you to my bed.

Homeland.Homeland.Homeland. by Lorisarrd
Know my City by it’s Cats,
They know all of it’s secret places,
Follow now these furry guides,
They’ll try and not lead you astray.
Feel protected in my Home by it’s Hounds,
They will not stray from your side,
They be fierce and they are loyal,
These Dogs will guard you while you slumber.
Know the tales of my Land from it’s Birds,
They know so many songs and riddles,
Let their many tunes set your soul to flight,
And their voices will guide you to where my bones now lay.

Beware HopeBeware Hope.Beware Hope by Lorisarrd
Hope can be cruel,
Each new day can look bright,
But when Hope can quickly flee,
And leave you in the cold dark night.
Hope can be flighty,
Staying just out of your reach,
Then Hope can suddenly dance away,
And Despair slips once more into the breach.
Hope can cause great harm,
Especially when she drives away Fear,
Because once Hope slips once more from your heart,
Fear and Sorrow can once more steal near.

And I cannot think of anything else to put.

I know I am behind on answering comments etc. Sorry about that. This is the time of the year for me I get the most writing done, hence the flood of poems.
I will be out of communication from 10am today and for 4 days in total so you will all be safe from more writing for a bit.
I was hoping to have new pics uploaded before I left but that fell through.
I will answer all comment people have posted for the new poems and thank those who have faved new pieces next week.
Please keep my wonderful Wife and Muse in your thoughts as she is having surgery this week, hence the trip.
