Be sure to listen to the music

I suppose you think I wait for you?
You suppose that this is all I do.
Whilst I spend my time just waiting to see.
Whilst you spend your time away from me.

Ah, silly boy you are mistaken
Tis not my heart that you have taken.
My heart is not for you to hold
You’ve lost that right, if truth be told.

I prefer the silence of forgotten pain
No longer will I allow hurt to gain
A hold upon my head and heart
I will stop that aching before it starts.

I say these words to remind myself
That no man shall put me upon a shelf.
I will not allow these dreams of fire
As if languishing in a house of desire.

Hello, I am Rhonda aka RestLeSsD & I am a graphic & web designer. My main media is Photoshop & Dreamweaver. I create 3D art & images using Fractals from Incendia & Apophysis. I use these in my creations formed in PS. I also use Picture Window Pro and Paint Shop Pro.
I am also a poet & I have been writing since I was about 10 years old. Since being here on the Bubble I have fulfilled my goal of illustrating my poetry & writing as well as writing new works…

  • Yes, I seem to head in that direction for some reason. . . unrequited love, or lost love, or cruel love. . . will there ever be happy love? I guess we will have to wait & see. . .
