~Nothing Else Matters~

~Nothing Else Matters~

A Poem by AprilRN1210
"

.........

"




“What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us.”

Henry David Thoreau




 






No matter what we’ve been through

you’ve given me hope for something new

trying to dry all the tears that I’ve cried

dying to feel alive… again… inside.

 

Accepting the way I feel for you

has opened my eyes to a different view

no longer trapped in cracked mirrors

seeing facts a whole lot clearer.

 

A world apart stands a simple man

holding my heart within his hands

spilling the sand, we watch it scatter

love expand s--so nothing else matters.

 

When the madness of sadness starts to creep in

I’m stronger-no longer- do I have to pretend

fear fades with each breath that I take

shaking charades made by mistake.

 

Trust I feel and I share with you

kinship of friendship accrued and grew

we’ll get through each path we choose to pursue

these three words don't always spell disaster

I’ll be loving you and nothing... else... matters.

Oh , my Romanticism . Haven't seen this for a while. In fact is not very common around here (The cafe). The use of intense emotion as an authentic source of aesthetic experience, placing new emphasis on such emotions as apprehension, horror and terror, and awe. In this writing we find all of them. In fact this is probably the "darkest " writing I have ever read from you. I can only assume the reasons are clearly described in the writing so there is no need to put them on show. I really relate to the gesture of the writing. You standing at the top of the castle, bruised and battered emotionally , a storm coming, winds , grey skies falling upon you , your black cloak and the image of the sun at the distance in its reflection that person that will still be there for you until the bitter end.

Nothing else would matter.

Thankyou

Now you're talking . . . my favorite writer - Thoreau. Love the ending - "I’ll be loving you and nothing... else... matters." so very true. Good job.

' A world apart stands a simple man -- holding my heart within his hands -- spilling the sand, we watch it scatter -- love expand s--so nothing else matters.'

Concise meter, divine wording, wonderful warmth.. great music - all equals a more than fine post.

I just loved it. This one is romantic and has a sadness too but not one of the sad love stories. This poem is beautifully written and every word, every gesture of this could be visualized with ease. I read it for a number of times just because I liked it so much.

More such reads and indeed "Nothing else matters"

April, First of all, using one of Metallica's classics to match your title is inspired, in and of itself. This is such a loving write...the rhymes all flow like a wooded stream instead of seeming forced (like some of mine sometime feel), but what I really like most is the way you alter the fonts throughout - - some words italicized, other words bolded - - it really serves to accentuate what you want the reader to see and feel. I use tactics like that some myself, and not always as fluidly as this reads. I hope you felt as good writing this as I did reading it. Very well done, young lady!! take care...dan

A deeply personal write, inspired from a classic.. I loved every bit of it april.. couldnt stop my brain from singing it out while reading it :) I sense that you've taken the piece to a more personal level, the subtlety with which the pain is described is remarkable. cheers!

April... out of the mouth of hot babes...;) comes wisdom and truth... and Metallica. Great combination! Love is what matters... for family, friends, and lovers... You have said it well and I especially love the not so precise rhyme scheme. It took me a second to realize there was one. I like mirror/clearer and man/hands... solid stuff. Keep that hot babe wisdom flowing...
