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.

excellent poem. i'm so glad i came to revisit you, missed your writing. the metaphors are so sharp, and the descirption tangible. my fav parts:

Reaching my hand to cup your heart
Feel your blood pumping like a work of art...(EXCELLENT)

I watch your form as you walk away
It's as if you knew, tomorrow is another day....

(BRINGS BACK MEMORIES TO ME. when i would cry on my friend's shoulder, but i woudl regain strength and walk away, with much more power, knowing i could move on. sometime people watch you in silent solitude, analyizing the way you handle situations etc. esp men.)

thanks for sharing. talk soon.

Wow,

and you put all these other elements together in such a way it jives. It takes a lot of skill and craft to do what you do.

Constant evolution of pieces, this piece has gone sober, and you are still an amazing writer, teach me how to write without drinking first.

Amazing fundamentals

A wonderful piece

This is fabulous! All the lines intertwining together, a story to
be told. The suffering, mending, and finally the strength to go on.

We hide sometimes when we write, but it's like we can't hide
our true selves from being uncovered.

Your words flow gracefully...thanks for sharing....AD
