A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror

the watch over a skyline corridor


a passageway assembled in perfection
hues claim blue for reflection
 conjured depth’s ensue 
a violet isolation
the design of oblivion
no fleeting moment can abscond
all must fall or fly the horizon
these obscurities hold my untold 
blinded in hidden tradition 
  secrets folded over delicate
           clouds of warm winter blankets           
trapped captive to an attic 
lay inside the sunny side of regret
 hope tapping on the window pane
a rap for the mocking 
sounds a cadence walking
the rhythm of keys jingling
turning on a swinging chain
 belief soars beyond iron bars  
the watch over a skyline corridor
gripping a cracked mirror
searching for a lost child, my child 
gone far into the abyss
grey clouds shed their tears 
  fuel a mothers anguish
roar in a thunders rest
sadness mourns while evanescent 
the wonder of a child spirit
 reaches beyond the pieces left behind
the shine through this essence as divine
empty arms holding tight to stolen time 
 destiny fight’s to unwind
the labyrinth

I feel you have a firm grip on your life story as I see the emotions deeply connect it to your imagery. I’ve been reading through your profile and noticed you lost your daughter; it gave me perspective. I am sorry- my prayers to you if you so wish. Your poetry is honest and I respect that.

You're welcome best of wishes. :)
quite the maze you take us through. we all have hurts, regrets and losses in life but time marches on. "seek and ye shall find." we are all his children. we walk a fine line between this life and Heaven. we must live the life we are given - not easy but faith is the key. we must keep our eyes focused and we can get through anything. that is what i take away from your deep, wonderful words and imagery ... :)

When I was a young girl I was your average Tomboy. I lived to watch Star Trek the only thing that could take me away from the voyages of the Star Ship Enterprise was playing Baseball with the boys. .. more..
