Life Is Like Vinyl

Poem By CHARMAINE SIMPSON

I have turned a corner
Finally
Time seems so unaccountable
Feels like yesterday
Seems like a lifetime
So much has unfolded

This means I was moving
Although giving the impression of being stuck
Like a needle on a scratched record
Seemingly somehow but so very slowly
Still playing out the written destiny

Like a treasured disc of vinyl
Life follows an already etched track
That is played in the same familiar motion
Of the circle we call life

When we fight against what is destined
The same tune will play over and over.
Although we write the script for our own journey
Why do I feel like I am walking down a busy road blindfolded?
If I look behind I can clearly see where I have traveled
But if I look forward I cannot see the next step
To move ahead is inevitable
The outcome of this chosen destination
Is a place unknown.

A Closed Book

I am nearing the end of this story,
It seems like yesterday the first page was turned,
The introduction to what was to come captivated
My mind, heart, and soul.

Like Nothing Else

Like nothing else it enters your body,
flooding every inch with its ability to transport you back -
to the most beautiful place in your mind.

History that can never be replaced,

My Heart In A Letter

I sent you my heart in a letter,
I gave it showing all of me and what i felt,
I was open -

Hello Goodbye

Missing you -
The ache has become a permanent fixture.
Then we say hello -

Beautiful Friend

Look deep inside of yourself,
it is here where you will find the true beauty that lies in your soul.
At times in our lives this has been hidden from our view.
