    I know its here
    I know I left it
    Somewhere here
    I know I kept it
    Safe in here
    I had to try
    To lock it away
    I had to try.

    Impatience
    Gnawing
    Digging deeper
    Struggling
    With the combination
    Was just for a while
    I wanted to keep her
    Locked away
    From my own emotion.

    Now the problem is you see -
    I've lost the mark
    I've lost the key -
    Looking, searching in the dark
    I know its here
    I had to try
    Follow the sound
    Her beating heart
    Muffled as she cries.

    I don't know how you keep coming up with these works of genius, but keep doing it anyway!:smile: I wish for peace for you and some measure of comfort in your soul.

    love,

    I feel short on words these days, but I *especially* appreciate this piece. Finding that 'key' is like I'm SURE I had it in my back pocket, but it fell through a hole to the bottom of my socks, and I haven't looked there yet...

    Ain't it the way - everything you look for is always in the last place... (exasperation and a crooked grin)

    love, FAL1
