This Moment

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)

  

When you looked me in the eyes

As those clouds of baby blue

Rained down on sensitive skin

That radiates like the sun

From the beat of your heart.

As I held that umbrella

To shield you from the storm of hate

I actually felt like Atlas.

 

And in this moment

I finally became real

 

 

When I touched your skin

With my working mans hands

So dirty and rough

From a day out in the grind

You didn’t even flinch

Suddenly all the aches and pains

Of everyday living felt like

Sensations of a heaven’s breeze.

 

It was in this moment

I knew you were real.

 

When a closet full of

Jealous bones buried us

We still held hands

Laying six feet deep

As our hearts kept beating

Till the graveyard could

No longer keep us down

And the tombstone read…

 

“From this moment on these two are real”

Wow Dale this is just so amazingly beautiful. I could cry because this poem has just touched me too much. How many of us feel unreal or unworthy in this world? To find that special someone who can wash all of those bad feelings away, that's my definition of being blessed and at the core of what real friendship, love and acceptance truly are.

One of very few poems that had me captivated all the way through. This was such a pleasure to read.

It doesn't surprise me that this comes from you. The warmth and realness that humans pray to find in someone that shares that truth of our being is what creates the most beautiful song/poem/sunshine/laughter!
It was in this moment

I knew you were real.

~~~Fine writing Dale!!!

Oh my...
I don't know what to say! This is so touching. It captures EXACTLY what it is like to FINALLY find that special person who makes you whole , yet makes it okay to be one...that makes no sense, does it?!?
Any way, great one! You just keep getting better and better!

Wonderful imagery! I really could imagine these few lines...
"From a day out in the grind

You didn't even flinch"
This is such a great piece. From the vocab, to description, everything was amazingly done. Thanks for the read!
