Missed Connections in Athens, GA
Like a small butterfly you are flying around in the wind so beautiful,
so vulnerable but alone…
Be careful, a storm is coming…
Find a safe place so you don’t get hurt…
My sweetie you are loved by many
but there is only one who will love you like no other.
I want to be nearby when summer nights come creeping in,
as the summer sun goes down,
when the smell of honeysuckle drifts on a gentle breeze all around
I long to hold you,
to take your hand.
I would whisper that I love you.
I am waiting for you here.
NOTE FROM THE MISSED CONNECTIONS CHIEF BOTTLE FINDER:
The illustration accompanying this messages was submitted by Bridget Robbins of New Hampshire. Many thanks are sent her way as I’ve long hoped that followers of the Lovelorn Poets would submit writing or art to complement the missed connections I find. You can find Bridget, her artwork, and her writing, on Butterflyblot. I’m sure we’ll be featuring some of her poetry in the future as well!
