Remember His Words

Remember His Words

A Poem by Poppy Ruth Silver
"

Nighttime hours have a tone of their own...

"


She says 

there is a light in here somewhere

except unlike her

I can't turn it on


It's only mortal blues

lips whisper and lie

only the death 

of all you have known

rumbles a restless sky


Like the leaves in autumn

not all destruction is ugly

he softly reminds me


So many broken things

where is the thread

strong enough to mend

the strangled seams


Faith

rise from your slumber

I'm cold 

sacrificed myriad dreams

unseen

in a final attempt

to redeem

a battered soul


So many broken things

strangled at the seams

I have become nothing more

than a fragile beat

blurred

like the tattered wings

of a lonely bird

I'm not following this as a cohesive message -- getting mixed up with the "he, she, me" pronouns & how it all fits together. But that doesn't matter, becuz it's still a good read with poignant observations on nighttime hell. The third stanza is brilliant & thought-provoking. I also love references to broken things, needing thread to sew together strangled seams . . . this is your strongest analogy thread thru-out.

Thank you dear heart, nice to see you :)
'I have become nothing more - than a fragile beat - blurred like the tattered wings --of a lonely bird -'

These words have a sorry touch.. as ever finely expressed but.. less calm than in the past.

There are times when there's little comfort in thought, and, even less in words - especially at night. Light, vision, taken away, somehow - inevitably i guess, distorts hope. Precious moments weigh less than did, the spirit wants to regain that something mislaid.. perhaps. This you worries me, but yet, you must be allowed to mull, to curl into the child you were and re.assemble that big, beautiful light that's you, Poppy Ruth Silver. And you will, because you do.. in time.. no rush, no need.

I love how you wrote this in the voice of conflict of darkening dreams. A tired soul speaks in unique poetic vision. Deeply expressive in rich secret undertones. Awesome!

Lynn, much appreciated...thank you so much :)
This poem had a melancholic vibe to it, it's deep and resonates with you long after you finish reading it. It's kind of a journey, a struggle and the ending is far too realistic, which makes it completely real and relatable. I love it.

the depth and breadth of this one is beautiful -- it is simplicity, grace, sorrow, and acceptance, all at once.
