Merry Go Round


Merry go round

Until we go down

Spinning top

Boring a hole in the ground

Throwing pieces

Pieces that were me

But I’m not sure if they fit anymore

Ripped to the side

The side of reality

The side that was a dream

Or a nightmare

Merry go round

Until we go down

Spinning top

Boring a hole in my heart

Rip away the façade

The shell I used to protect me

But in reality

It only hid me from what’s good


Shoot me straight up


Burst into the stars


Flying free

Being me


Merry go round

Forever I’m bound

To the truth of my soul

To the beauty of my journey

To the peace in my heart

    1. Thank you my dearest! Sometimes we need to “jump off” the spinning merry go round of life…and analyze where we’ve been…what direction we are going in. It never ceases to amaze me that I can believe I am so aware…and then find out I have changed directions! I am back on track…and I thank you for always being an immense source of strength for me! I <3 you…and send my very best wishes! <3 <3 <3

  6. First off – YES, I am on a binge reading spree on your blog! And I loved reading each one of your beautiful work, Lorrie. 😀
    I have doing this a lot lately because I just love how many different feelings your words can make my head, drift into! Magical! <3
    This one caught my attention the most because merry-go-rounds are always so fascinating, right? The way you've used it is exquisite! When i read "Boring a hole in the ground" I literally felt goosebumps! Such was the feeling, really. It's so exhilarating to almost experience the transition from melancholy to the resonance of calmness in – "Burst into the stars Orbit Flying free Being me Serenity".
    Wow wow wow wow, I'm truly honoured to meet such poets as yourself, my friend. <3
    Peace and prayers. 🙂

    1. Awww! Talk about goosebumps! ! Thank you thank you thank you!!! <3. I am thrilled that you could feel the transition. it happened to me while I was writing it!! I love it…how amazing to actually be able to feel exactly what I was feeling while I wrote this piece…I am honored and humbled. Thank you for your beautiful words…and my doors are always open…
      <3 <3
