Letters To Euturpe: Shilo! Shilo!

Since this Letters To Euturpe is a wild card, I’m going to go with…Neil Diamond’s “Shilo”. Not any particular lines. The whole song.

Shilo! Shilo!
Daddy doesn’t want to be bothered today.
So,
Shilo! Shilo!
Come on out.

I am here.
So,
Let’s play

And we’d play.

Shilo! Shilo!
No one wants to play with me.
I feel so alone.
So,
Shilo! Shilo!
Come on out.

I am here.
Let’s play.

But you are too old now for such childish games.
But you are too old for make believe.
There is a time and a place for every thing.

Shilo’s time and place is not now.
Shilo’s time and place is not here.
It is then.
In time lost and put away with building blocks.

So,
They said.
And so,
I believed.

I moved on.
As they led me.

I met her.
My girl of fire.
My girl of passion.

She made me want to fly.
And I believed it.
I thought I could fly.

But she
She was the one who flew.

Please understand.
She said.
It isn’t you.
She said.
It’s me. I need to fly
I need to be free.

Shilo! Shilo!
I feel so alone.
So,
Shilo! Shilo!
Come to me.
Today.

I am here.
To stay.

      1. Not a problem.

        Sarah at tuckedintoacorner.wordpress.com has a challenge every Thursday where she gives her readers lines from a song and we have to make a story or a poem out of it. It’s a lot of fun and sometimes a definite challenge. 🙂
