Shadow of Tears

Shadow of Tears

A Poem by Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm
"

Smiling at the hands on the Clock of Emptiness, stuck in place.........

Have you ever found yourself  quivering
outside of lines
stained
by what you thought was a love story?
Wondering
if you will be swallowed whole
by the window you sit and stare out,
in love's well meaning glory.

Beneath passion  blowing through the door
visiting your mind
like those little things
filled with a warmth
you have wanted
for so long.
Often, you find life
is at its happiest inside your dreams,
where nothing's wrong.

Sometimes in the middle of the night  
you want to be
a never-ending flow of love
smiling at the hands
on the Clock of Emptiness,
stuck in place.  
However, time melts into years
until starlight becomes well versed
at hiding the shadow of tears
on your face.

To many to beautiful imagery to quote… a stunning poem!!
A sad loneliness for someone is waiting and dreaming of pure true love…
Yes! Dreams is always a joy.. they never disappoints us…
and it always brings strength within us to hope
that everything will come to its place in a balance..
Stunning poem my friend…

This poem leaks beautifully drawn images; from the wonder to the answer of love. Impeccable rhyme structure and intricate flow, poignant and simply beautiful.

Dreams are so much better than reality and yet we
try to breathe life into them knowing mostly knowing
they will fall short of our expectations... xo
