That Drive (NF)

Thump thump thump

The sound echos throughout the room

It’s almost dark outside

Been here since afternoon

Thump thump swish

Another one made

This is the way this game

Was meant to be played

Thump thump squeak

Footsteps across the floor

Thump thump swish

Three points more

Thump thump…

Silence

Concentration wont break

Visualizes the completion

Then another one she takes

Follows through with the wrist

Then swish

Add one

Tired now

But still not done

Inhale Exhale

You can tell her all is given

By the way she breathes

Sweat rolls down the face

Wipe it off with a sleeve

Can’t let it get in the eyes

Distort the path to the prize

Thump Squeak Swish

She’s so good at this

Not for any other reason

Than that drive and constant…

Practice

 

She really loves this sport…

Keeps Me Grounded

Once, twice, thrice

Always so nice

She’s the one who’s there

When all crashes down round me

After going through hell

All that I would want to see

When I’m upset and confused

She tells me it will be alright

I listen to her every word

And I never put up a fight

Because when I’m listening to her

I know what she says is right

She’s the warm feeling

Deep in my soul

The one that helps me feel better

When all around seems so cold

The umbrella from the rain

Keeping me dry

The one that wipes of my face

If ever I start to cry

What would I do without her?

Where would I be?

Who would help me out?

Who would look out for me?

Lost without her

Like my own GPS

She always points

In the direction of success

She’s the best

Wish I had known this before

Now all I can do is watch on

As she walks out the door

Though it’s not closed

And is still ajar

Nothing else would seem

Up to par

Can’t find the words to describe

Anything anymore

So for this dedication

This is it…

No more…
