Throwback Friday- To say Nothing of the Dog by Liyona

Meeting and finding

new news

to bring back to my time

.

Flying through space

whispering all my feelings

Will you hear?

For ages ago,

I lost any sense of

where you might be

.

Rippling raspberry tarts

and late night chocolate kisses

All scrumptious and delicious

but

concealing the fact

this is not my home

.

Tearing through time

shouting all my loves

to you

For just minutes ago,

I grabbed hold of your hand

and knew you

were next to me

.

Meeting and finding

your heart

to bring back to my time

Liyona is an “average joe” kind of writer who likes to think about ordinary things and then write them down. Ever since she can remember, she has been rhyming words and creating lyric poems. During her college years, she took a more serious bent toward writing and started to post on her blog (The Life and Times of a Quirky Character.) Currently, she resides on the East Coast of the United States just north of the country’s capital.
