August 26, 2010 “Fear” Thursday Poets Rally
Thanks, to all who nominated me for this award. I display it with pride 🙂
In accepting this award, I’m asked to nominate another poet.
My nomination for this go round is… (insert drum roll track here)…..
The following piece is for my earthbound angel. I know, I’m mushy, and sappy; I write about LOVE and the pains that go along with it sometimes, but it’s what (according to some of you) I do very well. So, here is another Love poem from my Gloriously Tormented, Happily Sad Heart 🙂 🙂
of losing my words
of losing my rhyme
my pen quivers in my fingers
my mind races and stops dead
lost in a misty mélange
against some demon
unseen and unknown
I cannot find myself
I do not know where I am
my past buffets me from all sides
my future mocks me
my now is a mystery
where are my words
why can’t I speak
I call out with all of my strength
I scream until I’m breathless
a cacophony of silence
crashes in my ears
the darkness swallows me
wrapped in a black shroud of nothingness….
I hear a voice in the dark distance
whispering my name…
am I dead or alive?
my eyes slowly open to pale light
I see the face of an angel…
I rest in the arms of an angel…
I look into the gray eyes of an angel…
I hear the voice of an angel…
and that is why…
I Will Love Her Forever.
