I was inspired to write this poem by a song I found on YouTube by Celtic Woman called The Voice. It's an enchanting song so this poem is a bit whimsical and metaphorical. Here it goes, I hope you like it. In the moments before sleep claims me I think about my heart's desire Love flows around and through me I float away into the fire Darkness gives way to blinding light Music pulses with a life of its own I seek my bearings with all of my might This place that fairies call home I begin to dance as light as a feather Swirling amongst the fairies Twirling with quiet grace Dancing without a care in world I feel his presence strong and true Dancing with masculine grace I feel his strength and confidence Never seeing his face We dance endlessly Sensing the familiar but afraid to love His arms close around me Quickly I feel I?m home The dance continues, breaking the spell I fight to hold on to what could be Reaching out in desperate plea But farther and farther he drifts away The music grows silent as darkness returns I awake in my bed alone once again One tear shed for what might've been But hope remains for what might still be (c) 2007.

Re: truefriendinme write: makes me sad...

Why sad? I'm asking because I'm inherently curious by nature. The inspiration was a very light-hearted and whimsical song. My intention when I started writing the poem was to keep it that way but I guess it is a real reflection of my feelings. I've been a bit depressed because of things happening at work and and stress at home. Either I come up with $900 extra a month or I have to move out of my house. Friday, the Sr. VP sends my boss to find out what's wrong with me because she thinks my work quality is going down hill. (I'm way over-loaded at work). I've been there 2 1/2 years and never once gotten a review or a raise. On top of that, I overheard the same Sr. VP say she thinks she's paying me too much. That's what I get for being so nice and willing to help out at work instead of sticking to own job. Basically I'm really tired of being sh*t on. Why is it that nobody sees all the good stuff you do...they only see when things go wrong? (deep breath) I'm so frustrated and I have no idea what to do. The worst part is that I don't even like my job anymore, I used to love it. Does anyone have any ideas? Sorry, I didn't mean to make this a vent session. But I guess I feel a little better though. I could use a big cry at the moment. Oh well, we'll see what tomorrow brings. Melissa
