Flashes across a crowded room, glimpses, a smile, a sideways glance. At first sight, my heart knew. My mind argued, 'tis purely chance. My mind said it wasn't possible, But my heart pattered its rapping dance. There were some surprises and hiccups, but we saw each other through. Now we're closer than imagined: me beside you. Today is very special. It comes every year. It's the day you came into being, therefore, I hold it dear. My life without you wouldn't be complete. So, today, I treasure you, today's masterpiece. … [Read more...] about Happy Birthday!
I have family and loved ones in Houston, so Harvey hit close to my heart. This one's for all of you who are suffering or have suffered. We've Got This Water tumbling, rocks crumbling, earth shifts. Where do we go from this? We get bolder. We can conquer. We are survivors. We get stronger. Waters flood, trees snap, winds howl. Skies open and drench us. Wow! We get bolder. We can conquer. We are survivors. We get stronger. Together we can rebuild. We can make it now. Disaster Relief … [Read more...] about We’ve Got This
When I wake, you're the face I see. At bedtime, a vision of you and I sleep peacefully. My dreams no longer haunt me. They're delicious and sweet. My heart, it beats, a steady drum. The wall I built, solid concrete. No key or ladder to go through or above, Yet you seiged the wall and made my life complete. Emotions now rush like waves upon a shore. Can my heart withstand this onslaught? This beat? … [Read more...] about This Beat
Crazy emotion. Flighty and free. Uncontrolled passion. Twinges of jealousy. Rapidly beating. What is this? Feelings swirling, emotions unfurling. My dreams so full of bliss. Kisses I seek, Touches I crave. Scared and weak. Can I be brave? My heart, a lump, Tattered and scarred. Fragile and fractured, Kept locked and barred. Can I be brave? … [Read more...] about Brave
I don't know where this young talent is or what has become of her life, but I felt compelled to share her poem once I read it. For you, my dear readers, enjoy! From A Celebration of Poets - Midwest - Grades 7-9 - Spring 2009 The End Time stops; eternity freezes tight The world is dim and black, forgotten is sight Nothing is moving: no waving, no blinking Not a thing is possible, even thinking Muteness fills every last void and crack All sound is dispersed; it'll never come back Quiet is deafening; silence is worse This continual darkness is an evil curse Feeling is gone, no wounds with pain No joy, no love, no dancing in the rain Memories are left far behind So that the world is totally blind Yet … [Read more...] about The End by Alexandra Mustric
This would be a first for me as I haven't posted a poem that isn't mine, but I was floored when I read this poem. This very talented young lady has been through what would be an insurmountable amount of tragedy for most and has been able to pull from it to create this work of art. I hope as I post it here that you are as astounded as I was upon reading it. It seemed an injustice not to share it with the world. Woman of the Future By Bubbles I am a child, I am all the things of my past, I am the abuse my father gave me I am the death of my cousins, I am the bullet from the gun that killed my brother. I am all I see, I am the vision of I am the vision of tangible spirits, Things I … [Read more...] about Woman of the Future
