“with grace”

by Harry

Submitted by Anonymous

.

i closed my eyes at twelve
woke up by an electroshock at one
dressed myself up with my eyes half-closed
pausing every once in awhile
to feel my heart.
it’s become a necessity –feeling my heart,
because nothing here is realer than this.
My heart’s in time.
Still in time.

A lost life

You spoke
I woke
Just a dream
I scream
Another day
To while away
No hope
Cannot cope

Let me be your oyster
You can be my Pearl

Let the ocean tides
Be they reap or so

The Sea, a Song I long to hear

The Sea, a Song I long to hear,
Thundering crescendo crash of waves,
Siren seagull cries that call me thither,
Grey sky shroud, enfolding, smothers dark grey moods,

To my eternal muse

by Harry

Submitted by Daniel J Buro

.

It is that which whispers when all is still in the lulls of the mind.
It is that which makes the heart race when the clock strikes the calmest hour.
It is you to which my soul has assigned.
It is you to which my eye sees as the most precious flower.

True Love

by Harry

Poetry challenge: Valentines poem.

.

Submitted by Katharyne

.

The sun shines through the leaves.
The bird birds sing merrily.
I see him in my dreams.
He says he loves me.

Tell me, what is true love?
My full, fluttering heart
grows wings like a dove.
Storms tear this love apart.

Eclipse

Jupiter was a happy man!

Short in stature,
polished in smile

He walked as if Lear on stage

Honour!
It kept him strong like banyan tree

A poem for valentine’s Day

by Harry

Submitted by Tsegaye Tessema Tola

.

I dreamed as if I will cheer my love- Habtish
In that dream I saw my angles’ hands on the dish
I stretched my hands and could not reach out to feed my kids
My sweet love constantly looks into my eyes in that dream and I into hers
How wondrous is that dream pulling my neck all that long to her lips for a kiss.

Isms

by Harry

Submitted by Lori MdKendrick


I had two boys, but now they have gone away
Now my life is full of grey
The loss has rattled me to the core
They are still in this world, but do not want to talk to me anymore
Raised by an alcoholic father and a mother who was an enabler
I do not need to ask why, I can see the hatred in their eyes
Everything I thought I had done right,
Appeasing the alcoholic, and never speaking out,

I spill
royal blue words
while soprano cerulean rises

falls below navy blue
arcs up then beyond
through aquamarine
turquoise cobalt

The Dream of a Void
How deep have i descended
Till the break of dawn?
the lawbreakers are perhaps happier than me
At least they break

I need you to take my hand
We can walk into the night
No harm will come to us
I promise to make things right
This journey we have to make
Leave this place so far behind
Forget the scorn of others
A better life we will find

Murder

by Harry

Submitted by Laila
.

They say the way to murder someone is to tell them you love them and then leave
But it’s more lethal just to lie and make them believe
Force them to think you’re there to stay
Even though you’re gonna fade away

The Legacy of Art

by Harry

 

 

I have no interest in their prophets salvation,
In their promise of eternity.
A heritage of consumption and regurgitation,
Hallowed doctrines that are truly empty.
I don’t fear hell, I don’t desire heaven.
I don’t belong to their nations,
Their castes, their mindless divisions.
Their creeds, their malicious dispositions,
Vile ideals that breed schism.
Violence in the name of religion,
Wars in the name of patriotism.
I don’t desire power, The endless rat race,
The need for higher positions.
I don’t need mind numbing materialism.

The Antipoem

by Harry

Submitted by keepingitliterature

.

I am the antipoet,
I have no time to Rhyme.
Nor do I long for Rhythm
Or Structure- and- the like.

I am the antipoet,
Repetition and Refrain bore me,
So much so that I must repeat how
Repetition and Refrain bore me.

PLUMAGE

I was a feather in a peacock
And he wore me around the clock
I was in the centre of the crowd
And I always made him proud
Everyone tried to get into my place
But I would never give them a chance

I do not move

by Harry

Submitted by Paul

Frosty fingers reach out to me
I embrace the cold
Something that I can feel
Alas unable to hold
Icy particles prick my body
Trying to enter in
Cold winds swirling around
Goose bumps upon my skin

My mother is Beautiful

My mother is Beautiful.
My mother is Beautiful.
She has the most spectacular blue eyes
that brighten when she smiles,
weathered skin kissed by long days in the sun.
Overworked hands that open and give generously.

Roses

one day I will fall in love
and I swear to all the stars,
all the tulips and burning cigarettes,
and all the foxes alive,
that in that moment when I fall in love
I will close all the windows around me;

What Mom would say.

by Harry

Submitted by Judy Schueler


What Mom would say.
Please do not cry for me.
Because you see, I am finely free .
I’m standing on God’s peaceful shore and I’m not suffering anymore,
I know that you will miss me.
I’ll probably miss you too.
But it will only be a little while .

With so many memories that will last

As we approach the New Year
I seem to be walking on rose petals
They bring reflections of a beautiful flower
A “To Be” and then
A “Not To Be”

Concrete Though

by Harry

Submitted by  Clara Gross

I know of the face that lives in the wall,

A presence unwelcome, a pest that dwells,

Its gaze I fear, its purpose my downfall,

Though hidden; it seeps my own plaster hells.
