Sing me a love song

Image by butcheredxbutterfly

I’ve been waiting on a love song to sing to me.

I’ve been waiting on a love song to speak to me.

A kind melody to dance with me. A lullaby to soothe me.

A love song to rekindle love’s-memories.

The radio refuses to play what I need and my CD’s won’t work for me.

There are no melody makers strumming on my street.

No Mexican Serenades under my window. No Scott Joplin‘s Solace whispering to me.

I’ve been waiting for a love song to sing to play for croon just for me.

But, I think the song that “I” need hasn’t been written, yet.

"I Float".. I Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee..ain't nobody got nothin' on me." I Float with iridescent blue wings.. high on top of purple dust..low to the oceans floor. I spin and whirl, wallow and sink. I am who I am, only because it's who I've been blessed to be. All-knowing and nothing. I knew you long before YOU knew you. Plugging USB cords to the universal cipher, I stay lit. I do what I do, simply because I DO IT. I love, hurt, bleed, laugh, cry, dance. F up, F down, (sideways and on my knees). I pray for forgiveness, and sleep on books of ancestral secrets. I love life because "it's" mine. I want bliss, happiness, joy, and "The love of my life", but I face reality that I may have to settle for the fattest, funkiest, avocado, soy burger and wheat-grass juice. "I Float"..Not fast. Not slow. Just enough for (YOU) to stay with...(ME). Mantra (Writer, Poet and Artist from The Greater St. Louis Area)


  1. Sounds like you’re writing it right now, and this piece so RESONATES with me right now. I need to have one for myself too.

    Love it MantraLotus, very cool! :)

      Thank you Pete..I like the “very cool” :) Maybe our song will be written soon :)

  2. “But, I think the song that “I” need hasn’t been written, yet.” Mantra, this is so beautiful the words capture a vulnerability that aches. I love it!

  3. Lovely poem, Mantra Lotus, sweet and vulnerable and yearning. It has something to say to each loving heart. I have So many talented friends! :)

    Ah, I’ve known that wait, and unfulfillment. I like the empowerment suggested by the last line. :) Maybe it’s up to us to write the songs that are meant for ourselves.

Got something to say?
