A Poem by Jack...



Of this I write, hope, dream…

 

Lying here between the folds of an uncaring sheet

A wind chime blustery morning calls me from sleep

Tracing shadows on dark walls through desperate eyes

Counting minutes on a clock’s reflective markings

 

Rain drips from altered eaves steadily, slowly falling

In syncopated patterns on damp grass clippings

Teasing my mind in the endless possibilities

Of what my desires, even at this hour plead

 

Your image finds me, still and silent

Questions come in long sentences

Breaking down dreams of distance church bells

Wondering if we truly could be, together

 

Will you ever find love again, could you

In the arms of one who imagines your beauty

Tastes your lips in midnight thoughts

Feels your skin on chilly twilight sighs

 

Of this I write, not because it is who I am

But because it is what I was meant to be

Poetically entwined, metaphorically wrapped

Draped upon your heart in phrases of collected verse

 

Read aloud as a smiling sun approaches

Whispering your name over the horizon’s wonder

Echoing of this affection that drains my soul

And longs to breathe you for the very first time

 

From my pen flows lonely ink

In lace-like frilly fonts of an italicized nature

Curling around these words penned in the dark

Hoping you see, hoping you read, hoping…………

your welcome
Great, great use of language and verbiage to express love that is present but maybe not reciprocated. Reminiscent and full of longing and remorse. The subject of this poem would have to feel nothing or have a cold heart not to be tempted are swayed by such sincere and eloquent use words of love. If she fell out of love this should make her fall back.

The poem is beautiful. Written the skill of the ancient writers. The gentle tone led the reader into thought and places hidden in the writer's mind. The ending lines are perfect. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
