Music Friday Prompt #16: “Rattlin’ Bones” performed by Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson – Beckoning Me Home

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRFZ2uOD4mk

Across the wide expanse

I see you inching towards me

Bit by bit

One day at a time.

We wish it was quicker

Less inhibited

But our baggage hinders progress

So much to be dealt with

Decisions made

Guilt discussed

Can I, can’t I, will I?

I feel ready you were heard to say

There’s a time coming

Where I want to be me

But first there’s demons

Gathered about me in so many forms

My brain is fighting to stay afloat

The prize is there

Worth the taking

Worth the striving

Worth the winning.

Like so many rainy days

We huddle against the cold

Words flying

Intent written large

Reaching out,

Caressing each others souls

Knowing why we are in this place

Cherishing the limited time we know we have.

I have looked beyond your faults and flaws

For therein lies the greatest secret of all

A miracle that has awakened me

Brought me alive

No longer looking into loneliness

But aware your love is calling

Beckoning me home.

  1. Hope of love, worth any risk. Great song too.

  2. This one got to the romantic in me. So hopeful, so intimate, so special. The lines that brought the tears (the good kind!) were: “Reaching out/Caressing each others souls/Knowing why we are in this place.”
    One of your best love poems I’ve read — maybe even the best because it’s a declaration of love, no matter what, no matter how, that two lovers shall be together “Cherishing the limited time we know we have.”
    Sorry, one of my soppy days. But good tears are nice for a change. So, thanks.

  3. J Lapis says:

    WOW-Good, Michael.

  4. You just HAD to give me the shivers lol Seriously though, there are no words to describe your poem. I always enjoy reading your poems 🙂
