Neptune’s Sandcastle

Originally posted on My Trending Stories

It all began with just one grain

Planted inconspicuous, and preordained

With your mischievous smile, the foundation was built

Patched with fond memories handsewn liken an heirloom quilt

I didn’t even realize you had snuck deep into my heart

Stealing real estate, the walls now decorated with unaffordable art

My moat now is desert land no longer offering protection

You’ve dug tunnels through my soul, passing every building inspection

How did the red flags of my brain not wave in warning?

Could a devil like you, really be so charming?

I had been so careful before, passing to the other side of the street

Keeping my heart to myself, even if I felt a bit incomplete

But here you sit with me in company to play in my sand

Eyes twinkle old secrets while fingers weave magic holding my hand

Waves crash in thunder and announce what I’ve already decided

While Neptune’s salt spray shows how much he’s delighted

Two twins of old reunited in his fatherly presence

Burning with loves soft glow of celestial luminescence

    This is quite dangerous, just giving your heart without first, knowing the person you think you’re into, and yet, it’s a mistake that everybody makes, in order to grow, to gain wisdom, it’s, unavoided…

        That depends, if it is constructive? Yes, of course! If it is a differing opinion, I might not agree, but I listen (read). But if it is disrespectful and meant to be condemning , I do not. 🙂

        Its better not to comment then ,as calling bad ,bad is not easily digestible with people .

        lol! Not usually! But I would hope that as a friend, they would not let me believe something was good if it was not. I’m a strong believer in respect. If even the critical are respectful, there is room for growth.

        Everyone should has self respect but problem is people confuse self respect with arrogance ,I have seen 99% people can’t take truth or wise words ,you genuinely tell have you ever got comment like nonsense ,bad ,no everyone is only writing wow ,great ,etc though all posts are not great even writer knows but who acknowledges .
