Wings of Ecstasy

Butterflies rising, fluttering,

Paper kisses in my womb.

Damn storming wings.

Roller coaster emotions,

Heave and swell.

Blue panic overwhelms,

Washes over me.

I gasp for breath,

Eyes reveal another kind of love.

There he stood,

He hasn’t been there before.

Eager to take off these chains.

Whispers of reverberation,

Pulse through me.

On the edge of falling, tormenting,

Exquisite agony.

    Missed your posts Es-tee. You got me hooked on Garmins and then disappeared LOL. This is nice and enjoyed the golf blog. If I’m ever out on the coast I’ll take you out for a few lessons, I’m a die hard! THIS is a great poem. Wonderful to see someone not afraid to write about their feelings, no walls here. Leo
