Afraid of Dust

Afraid of Dust

A Poem by Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm
"

If the song I sing tonight is not a soothing lullaby in an upside moon.......

"



























If I told you I am afraid of dust
that catches in places where I am tired

Would you still find me so amazing and fun
If I said what I think to those who have ears to hear
When I looked into your eyes
Would I still be the one

If the song I sing tonight is not a soothing lullaby in an upside moon
Will you still love me and the melody I create
Because no matter how my song plays; we can move on
To all those bright clouds
We anticipate

If I struggled to find words that washed over your skin like silk
That lingered dreamily in the light of your morning
Would you still hear the same sweet voice when I am tired
And afraid of dust that catches in places
On words I am forming

I think once you have love for someone, your always going have it. It might change form such as e.i when I was young and "in love with my first girlfriend when I was just in 8th grade and wanted to be her boyfirend. As now 4years later, I still love her just as much I just love her in a different way, as a friend. I think once loved is like matter, it can never be destoyed. However it can be created. Anyway I like you poem it quetoins the peroson if they really love you for you are or for what you can do. Good work!=)

We all love lovely words, don't we? We desire perfection and a perfect life. But, really, we are happy with those imperfect things. Why, we humans are imperfect! Which makes us perfectly imperfect? Or imperfectly perfect? Either way, I would still love your words as long as you keep writing, Neva. Your heart and soul are in these poems and that's all that matters.

I am afraid of dust, watching it as it floats free but wary of when it settles. Great poem my friend.

Shades of The Portrait of Dorian Gray came to mind while reading your poem. That and Pink Floyd Dark Side Of The Moon Album.
