Taking the slow steps of a doe out of a cage and into the forest legs shaking, mind wondering, fear showing in the quiver of matted fur, the mind questions if it is all a trick?

In the grand expanse of a world beyond pain a nose picks up the scent of fresh grass for the first time.

Slow steps forward follow slow steps back until finally the doe is out of the cage and the doors shut behind her.

Every sound is awash with twin thoughts of skittish fear and awe.

The world seems almost too bright for her; the music of the wind, so soft causes her panic.

Yet every moment brings new peace and slowly she walks until she comes upon a stream.

Her nostrils flare and she bends her head drinking fresh clean water for the first time in her life.

Finally she allows herself to bathe in the shallow stream and as the water cleans her fur she starts to prance her heart beating fast with hope.

Her tail wags and her hooves clack against the stone bottom in a happy dance.

Into the night she finds herself shelter and food to eat.

She sleeps a peaceful sleep and her nightmares are chased away by imagined days of prancing.

At last.. At last.. at last the doe is free.

The hunter far away.

The doe dancing in a world where she’d never be seen again.

Thanks for reading! This is a poem that has been one of my absolute favorites to write. When I found the first words everything just started to flow. I miss feeling like that while writing poetry.

Back in Time

Ohh Lord 

I ask this one thing of you 

I’ve never asked for much 

But ohh lord please 

Would you let me 

Go back again 

Right back again 

Ohh Lord would you pretty please 

Let me go back in time

Ohh Lord 

I just need to go back 

To when he and I were not so bad 

Back to the time we were more then friends 

Ohh Lord 

Pretty pretty pretty please 

You know I’m more then sorry 

You know I wish to see him once more again 

In the time we were more then friends 

Ohh Lord 

You know how sorry I am 

I know I’ll never doubt his love again

I know that girl was just jealous

Kissing him, to break us up

So I’d get mad 

Ohh Lord 

I’ve made such a silly mistake 

His love was more then I thought I could take 

But he is true 

And she was fake

Ohh Lord 

I walked out on our wedding day

Her kiss on his lips made me fade away

Made me kick him out

Made me doubt his love 

Made me forget 

His love was true 

And he would never cheat on me 

For another girl who wasn’t me 

Ohh Lord 

Just let me go back in time 

To the time he called me mine 

To the time that we were more then friends 

Just let me go back again

Ohh Lord please 

Just let me go 

Let me go back 

Back again 

Back in time
