Poetry Today

Eternally Beautiful

lily-2032690_960_720

She is an ocean soul

Eyes holding the universe together

A sunset of dreams

Filled her heart

She is eternally beautiful

The color of a thousand

Moon at dawn

Poetry Today

Unfinished Portrait…..

‪I’ve lost the need‬

‪To love again‬

‪Unfinished portrait‬

‪Held pieces of her smile‬

‪Memories haunt‬

‪The night‬s

‪And the day‬s

‪Wept in loneliness‬

‪I forget how to breathe‬

‪How to sing‬

‪How to smile‬

‪Pain born and die‬

‪In my bones‬

‪My heart forgets‬

‪The taste of freedom‬

‪Oh to see her again‬

‪To feel the warmth‬

‪Of her tender arms‬

‪I would shake‬

‪The heavens©‬

Poetry Today

When Beauty Fades

large

When beauty

Slowly fades

And time

Unforgiving

Takes all

Leaving behind

Callous hands

filled with dust

And the remnants

of dead desires

When feet

Laden with burdens

walk the bitter streets

And painted skin

Of Amber and Starlight

withered away

Your soul

Dancing atop beads

of Jasper

Atop glacier filled mountains

Your eyes bursting like limelight

Beneath the glorious sun

Even then

You remain

An eloquent song©
