Fly Away With Me

Fly away with me
Travel to some distant shore
Where the sun always shines
And our troubles are a distant memory
#
Fly away with me
And let’s make a life anew
Free from our burdens
Missing our pasts
#
Fly away with me
Let us have nothing but us
Our two souls, our two bodies mingling
Under the tropical sun
#
Fly away with me
Bring only what is most important
To me that is you
When I have you nothing else matters

An Interlude

Life has been too fast-paced

Too many calls on my time

Demands for action

Too many things

Only one me

Perhaps an interlude is in order

A break away from it all

To gather oneself

And return stronger

Better, more able

An interlude to find

The improved me

Certainly worth considering

Perhaps?

Long weekend

After a long week

A hard slog through the field of chemistry

It feels strange, odd to not have to go in

A Monday and no office or lab

Just home, relaxing

Kinda guilty really

Should be doing something

But don’t have to

It is a long weekend

Time to take it easy

To not do anything

A little extra respite from the working week

Gotta love bank holidays
