Hush

You will never find me

No matter where you look

I need love no more

Nor words

When day is done

When dark comes on

I can hear the things

Your soul would say

Old words that rhyme

An old tale that went

Once upon a time

I tell my heart

To hush her aching

‘Tis only a dream

And dreams are nothing

So sleep

Do not weep

That I sleep

My days are cool

And gentle with forgetting

My evenings

Kind and sweet

With memories

Sunset burns to violet

Lovely in the silence

I shall soon be

Dreaming by the willow

No thoughts nor tears

So hush my heart

Every sorrow ends

The Weeping Willow is

Still and beautiful

Shimmering with

Memories and tears and sorrows

Collected from my heart

It is still

Now that all is finished

You will never find me

No matter where you look

I need love no more

Nor words

Reality and I have quarrelled. This is where I go so he can't find me, my Other Place. Here I can spin my Fancies and Fiction, as I wander among the Stars and listen as they whisper their secret to the moon. My name is Annie, I am lovely and lonely and I belong deeply to myself. I love cats, listening to the blues, the mountains more than the beach, being lazy, writing my fancies and fiction and I also love to crochet. That's me and this is my Other Place.

    1. Thank you my friend for taking the time to read some of my older poems. They seem kind of lost and lonely, once you write a new one and everyone forgets them.
