WITH A CHILDLIKE HOPE AND A HEARTFELT PRAYER

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

It was an offense
but was it intentional? No!
and I’ve begged Her forgiveness
now that I know

In my haste and exuberance
a sin, unintended
and I prayed to the Lord
that this breach may be mended

I AM NOT A POET

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

I AM NOT A POET
I AM JUST A SCRIBE
WRITING DOWN THE WORDS
THE UNIVERSE WHISPERS
TO ME ON THE WIND

THE WORDS SING
TO NATURE’S SONG
THEY SPEAK TO THE SOUL
AND TOUCH OUR HEARTS

With a shower of tears

The truth about you
That you were leaving

Let Me Help You Cry

by russtowne

Let Me Help You Cry

The raging storm inside you that you fear

Will drown you in a flood of tears

If you ever let your feelings show

There’s nowhere else for it to go.

I know you’re brave and I know you’re strong

But you’ve been treading water far too long.

aye

by John S

Sometimes, I weep, yet cannot
see the edge’s line and filigree.

Add to this – dim appeal,
obtuse affection, not fresh not real.

Creek beds flow in pouring rain
tears evolve, invoking pain.

Tears to the eye

by Jem Croucher

 

As I walked the long mile
By the dawn’s early light
I was privileged to witness
A spectacular sight
So with camera in hand
With a click and a prayer
I captured the moment
That I witnessed right there

Not You Anymore…

by Apurva

A piece of my heart,

still lies suspended,

in the intergalactic space

of time,

unresponsive

to the gravitational pull

Music Says So Much

by graypoet

Feelings are something we all have
Whether we try to avoid or ignore
They make us who we truly are
Without feelings, we can’t be sure.

Lost Voices

A million miles ago you see
Star that I just don’t see anymore
Lost on journeys we walked on
Lost are voices heard along the way

Do You Know?

by graypoet

Do you know that I thought of you today
If I were to try to talk, what should I say
It isn’t that I don’t feel all the emotion
I’ve felt us together as if in slow motion.

Do you know how you stir my thought
If I were to try to walk, would I be caught
It isn’t that we have shared even a touch
I’ve felt the desire you know, very much.

How Do You Count Your Tears

by graypoet

Tears are a fact of life that we all share
Giving way to tears can express so much
Maybe it comes from heartache and pain
At times it is the result of a special touch.

What of the tears streaming from an infant
Listening to a child cry seems no big deal
True some have no compassion or empathy
It wrenches our heart if we normally feel.

Sleeze seen
Warning delivered
And ignored,
Late at night
She calls and rambles
Over shortcomings, defects
Things mentioned
Time and time
Again

Lost For Words, Out Of Tears

by blackandwhiteartist

IT’S BLINKING… It’s blinking…
Waiting for me. But it seems impatient.
So I started to type —tap tap tap tap
It’s still blinking… It’s blinking…
I can’t make it stop. It won’t stop.
And I want it to stop. But I didn’t stop typing.
Just so it’ll be constant. Somehow it will slow down.
But it’s still blinking… It’s blinking…
Make it stop. I want it to stop.
I don’t want anymore blinking. But it wouldn’t stop.
Why? Now I’m out of words. Now I’m lost for words.
I can’t make it stop. But please…
It’s still blinking… It’s blinking…
So I’ll just leave it. Nothing I can do.
It’s blinking… It’s blinking…
I’m mixed up. I’m drained.
So be it. So be it.

Raw.

by Jen Thompson

 

Darkness,

Is a never ending wave of despair.

A pit overflowing with damned souls.

Skeletons submerged in tar.

A knife cuts deep.

Stabs in the back are eternal.

Salty tears mix with raindrops.
