Truthful Hurts

by graypoet

 

It came as a surprise that things clicked
Maybe we were looking for a distraction
But emotions got involved and blossomed
Hard to deny that there was an attraction.
I dreamed.

No Voice Left

by graypoet

 

Forrest reminded us that life is like a box of chocolates
Who knows what we will get as we go though challenges
There are times we see planets align we feel so blessed
Then we turn around, almost knocked down by changes.

Are You A Head Banger

by graypoet

boardofwisdom.com

 

We’ve all witnessed the effect that music can bring forth
Hard Rock or Metal can causing head movements to be seen
While some bang in earnest and some are just joking around
Those images of head banging are not the kind that I mean.

Sunny Days

Even when Winter really hasn’t been that bad
I long for the warmth brought by each sunny day
I’ll never tire of Summer with its hours of sunlight
Riding down roads without needing a word to say.

Reflecting

Often we stop what we are doing to reflect
Thoughts seem to roam like a grazing cow
Looking back at some detail or event passed
We might ask our self who, what, why or how.

What Type of Wall

by graypoet

At one time or another we all put up walls around our heart
Maybe to protect what we feel we have with a special one
Perhaps it is to shield from pain we feel headed our way
Think what type of wall do you have when you are done.

I Thought

I thought about memories of you last night
But it made my heart ache being alone
So I shifted thoughts to things I remembered
And I thought of times that made me smile.

Walking down a path and something special happens
Two hearts collide and it seems that things are right
How it happened is not exactly known, but you proceed
Before long thoughts of each other occupy your night.

Won’t You Come Back

by graypoet

 

Come on summer, I know you are out there
I’ve been waiting, your warmth I need to feel
I try to wait until you decide to show yourself
But today I really need you, here’s my appeal.

Should We Evict

by graypoet

We all have to decide what we allow into our mind
Things can come in, but we have to allow them to stay
I’m not talking just a passing thought that comes past
I thinking of distractions we let remain or send away.

Too Thoughtful?

by graypoet

Dreary days always seem to put me in the mood to think
I know some might realize I always think way too much
But without the warmth and glow of the sun to help me
There are times when my fingers the keys need to touch.

Passing of a Friend

by graypoet

Writing many times is an outlet for my heart
Often it comes out after over-and-over I start
I don’t always know the beginning or the end
Yet this one comes from the passing of a friend.

How Will You Walk

by graypoet

 

I felt the warmth flow across my face and remembered you
The sparkle in my eyes was from the reflection of my tears
Standing in the sun with my eyes closed I can still see a smile
But I know that being without you doesn’t give rise to fears.

To Advise or Not To Advise

What do you say when you seem to’ve said it all
When words just don’t seem to reach the heart
We all have different ways words seem to touch
They can build us up or at times they tear us apart.

Walk On

by graypoet

into the fog on pinterest

 

What do you say when you have run out of words
How do you reconcile ‘one’ that has become two
Do you take the time to look back and analyze
Or must you accept that your we is now just a you.

Four Letter Words

by graypoet

So many four letter words we can use to remember those that cross our path, just put some together to clear my mind. Not a poem, just rambling in four letter words.
Some flattering, some not, and yet we can relate to so many as we sit and think:

Away – how many times have we wanted time, only to find they were not around
Baby – might be a term of endearment or it could refer to the way that are acting
Care – it is easy to care how someone is being treated or to want the best for them
Dear – a term for those that have touched our heart and can still make us smile
Evil – come on, we all have those that we’ve come across that make us scared

Reaching for the Stars?

by graypoet

 

What makes us feel the desire to reach for the stars
To strive to better, to be more than others believe
Are we endowed with a flawed desire for adventure
Or is it a life test that we give more than we receive.

In a time where many have gone crazy
TV, newspapers, internet full of lunacy
It’s getting hard to find anything positive
We see so many feel no reason to live.

Do You Hum Along

by graypoet

 

There are times you need to hear a song
Something to make your mind go elsewhere
Maybe it will make you simply pause in time
It can paint a picture that will take you there.

Walk or Run

by graypoet

There are so many looking for someone special
They hear so many words and still try to believe
Learning from mistakes, while hiding their hurt
Yet too often still wear their heart on their sleeve.

There isn’t an instruction manual to guide them
Still it is hard not to get bitter and lack in trust
It seems we stumble along thru trial and error
Reaching, knowing communication is a must.

Paths Not Taken

by graypoet

We walk along the path of life’s journey
Not always sure just what we might see
At times we are eager to run on ahead
Wondering with who or what we will be.

We can remember some things as an instant in time
Others seem the minutes crawl by excruciatingly slow
We are all given the same number of hours in a day
Looking back, what have we done, do our efforts show.

Everyone I know cherishes their time off
So my weekends mix time to work and play
But too often when the sun rises after that
It heralds forth what I call Morose Monday.
