A CLEAR IMAGE

A CLEAR IMAGE

A Poem by Miss Sharon
"

The father of lies takes aim

"
A CLEAR IMAGE

I'm wed to the merchant of ill.
His words I have chosen to hear.
The message of one who was sent,
Rehearses the fright in my ears.

With clever deception he rules,
His curses are thrown from a spear.
The gleam from his eyes in the dark,
Has written my face in his tears.

This father of lies knows my name.
My image to him is quite clear.
My heart is stopped cold like my dreams.
And I'm caught between hopes and my fears.

Nicely written. Many of us are caught between hopes and fears; but the way you've expressed it is simply perfect. If we weren't caught, then we would be perfect and we're not. I like the line "My heart is stopped cold like my dreams." This is a dark mood, soon, I hope, to be lightened up.
Best, Betty

So much expression in this write Sharon. You never disappoint. Beautifully conveyed lines. Being caught between hopes and fears is a place where many people currently reside. We live in challenging times. Keep safe and well dear poet.

I am feeling this way lately...but no clear images, only cloudy days, and a heart getting colder.
damn, this is expressive, Sharon.
Caught between hopes and fears...often trapped there myself.
