Take Me Away

Standard

Swing, swing
Take me away
Push back and forth
Higher, higher!
Swing, swing
Lift me from this seat
Bring me to places I’ve never seen
Further and further away
Up, up, up!

{chorus}
Take me away, through the air
Feel the cool wind in my hair
As we soar through the night, over the land
So high people look like ants
And my worries fade away

Swing, swing
The possibilities
You bring
To me with your chains
Creaking under my weight
You take me to a place
Where nothing else exists
But this tranquility
Up, up, up!

{chorus}
Take me away, through the air
Feel the cool wind in my hair
As we soar through the night, over the land
So high people look like ants
And my worries fade away

girl on swing by wise purple joda

And my worries fade behind me
Like faerie dust in the sand
I clutch at the clouds with my hand
Oh, you take me to places better than I can imagine

Up, up, up!

{chorus}
Take me away, through the air
Feel the cool wind in my hair
As we soar through the night, over the land
So high people look like ants
And my worries fade away

Moon Child

Standard

I want to live forever
I want to see the world
But I am just a girl
Poor and alone
With no family of my own
Still I want to live forever
And see the world.

Dear goddess of the moon
Please make my dream come true
I will do what ever you wish
Please help me Miss.

My soul?
I suppose that’s OK
What will I need it for
If I’m going to live for eternity?

My, My, Moon,
You shine so bright.
Your one eye stairs down at me
So full tonight.
Tell me what is this tingly feeling in my skin?
What kind of voodoo are you working with?

My bones feel hollow
As they crack and break
I would call out for help
But I have no one to name
My body feels foreign
In its new shape.

Colors are void
With these new eyes of mine
Miles away I can smell fresh blood
As sweet as wine.
My paws dig into loose dirt
As I travel to a nearby pond
Peaking in I can see the result of my rebirth.

In my reflection I see
A wolf looking back at me.
Ha!
You take me for a fool?
“If this is what it takes to make my dreams come true
Then so be it!”
I howled to the moon.

This weeks picture it & write inspired this poem as well as a short story ( The Wolf’s Howl)! <—-Check them out ;]

Child of the Sea

Standard

It ebbs onto my skin

Covering me:

Its kin.

It swarms into my soul

Its mysteries

Make me whole.

We breathe in unison

In.

Out.

It draws itself across my body

In.

Out.

I beg it to take me with it.

Let me be a part of you.

A storm swells deep within it

Come my child

As it falls over me

Like a tsunami

Taking me adrift.

Taking me home.
