Dark Heart… #Poetry

Dark Heart

I did not fall from heaven

as a shining star.

Evil was my intent

to enter men’s hearts

yet many are too strong

my quote unfulfilled.

I am left to wonder,

to search for the darker

regions of men’s hearts

for I know there are many.

Dark thoughts floating  free

they belong to someone.

I will find them

to dwell on the darker meaning…

Untold…

Untold

Words slip from my mind

On to the blank page in front of me

Yet their meaning fades in the air

I struggle to put the words back in place

Like a broken puzzle that doesn’t fit

The story I need to tell, lost

Like so many, I have let fall by the wayside

When will inspiration grip my mind

Give the story from beginning to end?

Something I can be proud of

To say yes, this is it

The one that will move mountains

break hearts, shed a tear over.

Publishers to fight over

Wouldn’t that be nice?

A story in waiting no longer…

#Small Bites ~ Broken

Broken

Have you ever had one of those days

when you feel as though you are made of glass?

I am having one today.

I can feel small pieces slipping away as I walk

I am broken, disappearing slowly

I can almost see the pieces glistening behind me

like a trail of breadcrumbs.

Will someone follow and put me together again?

Storm Winds…

Storm Winds

I am sending out a SOS across the universe

My life is spinning out of time.

The taste of her tears linger

pulling me further into space.

She struck like lightning

then disappeared with the storm.

I let an angel slip through my fingers

Life is hollow without her here.

Sending out a SOS for storm winds

to bring her back to me…

First Love

I touched her hand for the first time today

my fourteen-year-old heart sank into my boots

as she flinched away

A look of pain on her face

as if I had burned her with a hot iron

The Valentine card left on her desk

I later noticed it in the class bin

torn in half

I wondered if she was the kind

that didn’t believe in love

Later that day, my heart was doubly wounded

when I watched her kissing a girl.

They thought they were hidden by the tall trees

my love for her would never be returned…

Fortune Change

I met a lady at the fair

Let me tell your fortune, said she

I smiled and kept on walking

She stopped my steps with this,

“You have one number wrong on your ticket.”

I paid with silver,

she told me then, “turn the four into a five

to see your fortune thrive.”

With this, my bank account did swell…

Faceless

Where are you now, my faceless one?

Do you hide in the sunset, the rain,

the smile of a newborn, the flowers in Spring?

Are you there in the face a neighbour, a stranger?

Are you the face of the new moon as she rises?

Do you bring new hope with every sunrise,

with each lover’s first kiss?

Are you there when my tears overflow?

Do you kiss away the sadness,

And bless each renewed moment of the day?

When I am feeling jaded, do you help me

to notice something new?

There is a saying, that you are never too old to learn.

I believe it, for a gift from the faceless one

each day holds a new surprise.

Something I hadn’t noticed before…

AAAAA
