Pouring Hope On the Shadows of My Broken Heart

Pouring Hope On the Shadows of My Broken Heart

A Poem by Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm
"

Like a bird I breathed in time from the star of an evening filled with two shades of laughter.

"





Like a bird I breathed in time
from the star of an evening
filled with two shades of laughter.
I wandered with an empty heart,
seeing faces
that frightened all the love
from the last time
those three little words
floated silently
into spaces
where nothing......
is sheltered.

Different images hold my head up
as if saying
all I ever wanted to be
can be found,
if I move my feet
instead of trying to tame all I look upon
and have become acquainted with.
Nothing smiles at the shadows
left by my broken heart
here on the sidewalk of
“Never Again, I Said.”

Should I pour colored hope
over what could have been a breath of time
and watch the light of the evening star
return warmth
to a water-painted canvas of laughter
we both can hear?
Allow my heart to be filled
with two shades of beauty
so those three little words
can float into spaces.......
held dear.

Can a poem simultaneously lift one out of despair and push them further down into it at the same time? I read the last stanza over and over, those three little words, so magical, the best any of us can hope to hear, but the memory of them can hurt so much when they are never to be heard again. Great work Neva.

Thank you so much Layla :) xxooox
Wow such a stunning poem... it is easy to want to seal off the heart and protect it from hurt, but then we miss out on the greatest things on Earth and might as well be dead cause we aren't really living.

This was a truly beautiful, and in the start of the second stanza, outright inspirational. You clearly have a true skill at writing poetry, i loved this.

Thank you Kaya
Missed your work....seems like I just don't make my rounds as often as I used to...busy summer and all.

What a wonderful way to enjoy my evening...a little bit of Neva...a nice warm bath...a cold beer...no I'm not hard to please....not at all. :))))

My favorite part...

Should I pour colored hope
over what could have been a breath of time
and watch the light of the evening star

What am I saying? It's all lovely!!
