Captivated

IMG_9340w

I saw you in the distance,
amongst the rolling hills.
You were fluttering with freedom,
as my heart stood still.

I wanted to catch you;
the innocence was true.
Because all I ever wanted,
was a love, no spark
outgrew.

So I ran and I ran,
caught up in a rendezvous.
My bare feet wild danced;
as I chased the light
you drew.

I finally caught you,
and placed you in a jar.
I watched your white light flicker,
knowing,
you’d never be too far.

But day by day,
you started to grow dim.
So with all my love,
I let you go…
hoping,
you’d come back to me
again.
