An Emotional Masterpiece

An Emotional Masterpiece

A Poem by Ralphy
"

For all those hearts that reachout to the world

"

An emotional masterpiece

 

Your diary, words to your hidden soul

Secret emotions melt into gold

These chapters will surrender and touch

About the heartaches you suffer so much

Your heart so lonely, and full of pain

Not an ounce of water, no sign of rain

I see the purity as it beats through

I wait and then, get a little closer to you

Reaching my hand to cup your heart

Feel your blood pumping like a work of art

I grab a tear from that trusty old tin

Let it drip along the wound, so it will mend

Your color returns spreading into your face

You still didn’t see me, as your eyes start to erase

The redness that lays carpet along the white

The puffiness, the swelling…just like a fight

The sunglasses, that common little disguise

But I still see right through your weary eyes

As you turn to exit the door

I read the last page of this emotional sore

I watch your form as you walk away

It’s as if you knew, tomorrow is another day

Beautiful. Simply beautiful. You have offered such hope here. The prayers, the gentle kindness of so many that reach out to help others in various ways -- silent angels. Often the people suffering never see those angels, but it gives them hope to know they are there. It gives them "tomorrow".

So well written, Ralphie.... it flows beautifully and aims for the heart.

I've reviewed this, but I'll go a second time. I wish I could keep a diary, but people are nosey. I still think that emotion is just amazing. Nice work.

Ralphie, i love the creativity to this!

the concept of the diary, the cupping of the heart... healing the wounds with the drop of a tear... the sense of not even knowing your there, but your helping any ways. The idea of selfless actions without credit. BEAUTIFUL!... we will heal one heart at a time. **-"It only takes 1 voice, 1 passion, and 1 heart to create a positive existence in another's life"-**

amen for blessing likes yourself.

much love n' respect

So much pain expressed in this piece. Yet, it also conveys love and comfort. The flow of words runs soft and smooth.

This one hurts .. it is very powerful to my heart.. it's flow like life itself.. everywhere I look I see weary eyes.. eyes are the windows of the soul.. I strongly desire to be a positive catalyst.. I can sense what many are feeling by looking into their eyes..daily...I can't even shut this off if I wanted to.. I think many can do this but most just turn away... where as with me I have this thing in me that makes me want to bring them up if they are sad.. I can't look away when maybe I should sometimes cause if they are in pain.. I sense it and feel it same with joy. I just feel everyone should have a dream and not give up ever.. thank you so much for sharing this one.. it has very high meaning.. people have to learn not to turn away from others hearts... and should encourage others instead of pushing others down. Sad undertones to this as well for the hearted one with the puffy eyes.. ='''( but we should all embrace being human and having that feeling too.. it makes being happy and the good moments that much more divine! =) Thank you so much for sharing..
