#NovemberNotes Day 18/Saturday Mix: Poem – Italian Sonnet – “No Need to Flee” #poetry #dVerse #Saturdamix

Or November Notes Day 18 the song Prompt is “Possession” by Sarah McLachlan. I’m also combining the Prompt with Lillian from #dVerse Poet’s Pub Prompt using the word or theme of groove and Sarah from MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie Saturday Mix Prompt on opposing forces. For this week the opposing words are exit and entrance, and major and minor.

“Possession” by Sarah McLachlan

Just close your eyes, my dear, I’ll wipe away —

Your glittering tears so you can see clear.

We’ve wonderful memories without fear,

I’ll steal the breath from your lungs, hide your pain.

I’ll be the one who’s there forever explaining.

The world is soft as moonlight’s groove reveals,

Night’s solitude soundless with intense dreams,

The truth discovered, blackness alights shame.

You’re not trapped, I won’t ever hold you down,

Stop fearing what could be live here with me.

In precious days without terrors crown,

I’ll wipe away your tears without a word,

I’ll be the one to hold you and to kiss you hard,

For I can calm your darkness, no need to flee.

    Enjoyed this very much. So glad you posted to the prompt. I very much like the idea of someone being there always to calm the darkness. Unconditional love. The “darkness” can have many meanings here and the one we hope stands near, is the one who brings light to us.

    And — I must say how much I love the red shoes at the top of your blog. Don’t know if I’ve ever said that before….but every time I see a post from you and see these little shoes, pointing inward, they just have some kind of an emotional tug for me! 🙂

      Thanks Lillian I’m happy you liked the poem. Yes, darkness can have many meanings as does light. I think we can help each other to calm those bad decisions or hurtful ones just by being with the ones we love. Not always, but I think it helps.
      I’m happy you like the shoes. It was a painting I found at one time. I used to have a different one but I liked that these red shoes were more painterly.
      When I started the blog I loved the femininity and strength of red shoes. If you’ve ever heard of the song “Red High Heels” by country singer, Kelly Pickler, it was one of my friends and mine’s favorite songs in University, and somehow that transferred to starting the blog almost 7 years ago.
      Have a wonderful weekend thanks for the comments.

      Yeah me too. Sometimes I think that’s all it takes is if we can calm the things where we would not make wise choices so that we think. And I think sometimes we can do that for others just by being with them.
