The Edge of Nowhere #Poetry #Photography #DianaMarySharpton w/Phil Collins "You Can't Hurry Love" #ILovU #Musicvideo

Introduction

“You can’t hurry love, and you can’t rush puff pastry, either. You can knead too much, and you can be too needy. Always, warmth is what brings pastry to rise. Chemistry creates something amazing; coupled with care and heat, it works some kind of magic to create this satisfying, welcoming, and nourishing thing that is the base of life.”

~ Kathleen Flinn,

I have not been around much lately and for good reason. First, I think jet lag kicked my butt. Secondly, a slow crescendo in work related politics brought on some arduous anxiety attacks. The solution to the jet lag was sleeping for three days and nights and work well today I stood up for myself and my reputation. I consider the score card both win-wins. What a glorious feeling being off for three days without worries or concerns and completely happy. I could dance, or run or laugh and maybe I will do all three. I am feeling very much alive.

There were two songs that caught my attention on the drive home, the one I am going to post tonight is "You Can't Hurry Love" by Phil Collins. The genre is Pop, R&B and Soul and originally released in 1966 by The Supremes.


The poem titled “The Edge of Nowhere” has been modified slightly for the occasion. Yes, I wrote it and can do this, bad grammar and all. It’s called a poetic license (smile).

The Edge of Nowhere
Standing on the edge of nowhere minus intricacy or applause
Watching light crawl past dusk; an assault inwardly that mauls
Emotionless, faceless, without thoughts a cylinder sphere
As wind wraps this body pressing limbs; fostering constant fear

So…
I drink the suns’ warmth as it climbs down in evening hues
Stretching arms, parallel, tip to tip; minding a flight of loons
A storm moves quickly across the abyss to where I reside
Then it hits my mind; almost toppling me over to one side

And…
I reach grabbing dark clouds above; its balance they send
Your hands steady my hold; an amity quietly transcends

"You Can't Hurry Love" (3)
I need love, love
ooh, ease my mind
And I need to find time
Someone to call mine;

My mama said
You can't hurry love
No, you'll just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
But it's a game of give and take
You can't hurry love
No, you'll just have to wait
Just trust in a good time
No matter how long it takes

How many heartaches must I stand
Before I find the love to let me live again
Right now the only thing that keeps me hanging on
When I feel my strength, ooh, it's almost gone

I remember mama said
You can't hurry love
No you'll just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
It's a game of give and take
How long must I wait
How much more must I take
Before loneliness
Will cause my heart, heart to break?

No, I cant bear to live my life alone
I grow impatient for a love to call my own
But when I feel that I, I can't go on
Well these precious words keep me hanging on

I remember mama said
You can't hurry love
No, you'll just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
Well, it's a game of give and take
You can't hurry love
No, you'll just have to wait
Just trust in a good time
No matter how long it takes, now break!

Now love, love don't come easy
But I keep on waiting
Anticipating for that soft voice
To talk to me at night
For some tender arms
hold me tight
I keep waiting
Ooh, till that day
But it ain't easy (Love don't come easy)
No, you know it ain't easy

My mama said
You can't hurry love
No, you'll just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
It's a game of give and take...

Love and Peace ~ D

Soy algo impaciente y esto es cierto pero quiero lo real y eres tu... Te quiero. En cuanto a disculpas, no está seguro de por qué... otra vez te amo mi querido amor
