Dormant lungs, paralyzed
Body hung suspended
Tired heart; empty eyes
Tainted from remorse
Injuries there inside
Broken dreams; hope denied
War without recourse
Lay them down, my dearest one
Let the stripes across your back
Mend in time–mend with love
Casualties of these attacks
Come alive again, my dear
Weakened wings can fly from here
Vestige of my darling friend
Come alive–awake again
You are busy today, and with great results. A verse in praise of those two magnificent healers Time and Love not forgetting TLC. Thanks for this verse it is uplifting to me at this point in time. xx
I am glad to hear that. It is hard to see such precious people hurt and lose hope. I am by nature a cynical and depressing writer, though in life I tend to be positive and encouraging on normal days. We all suffer deeply but I long to give freedom and hope to those I love
Your words make me feel so narcissistic. Something rare for me. But the last few posts speak right to my soul as if they were for no one but me. These are so strong, so beautiful. I will hold them into my heart as I journey into my today figuring which steps to take, if you will allow me.
You may use and abuse my thoughts and words as you so choose. If they can be any encouragement to you it is an honor to me 🙂
Super wünsche dir ein schönes wochenende und liebe Grüsse Gislinde.
Thank you Gislinde!
I really like this one. It comes at a great time for encouragement! Thank you your words never cease to amaze me.
Thank you! Glad you were encouraged by it
Beautiful. It leaves a warm glow inside me, a tingling feeling of hope.
Thank you very much! I’m so glad you stopped by and took the time to read and comment!
I have a confession..
I’m not a priest but I would be happy to listen 🙂
You’re my favorite poet.
Awww I am very flattered. 🙂
I don’t even think of myself as much of a poet. More of a wandering spirit trying to find methods of expression. I really know almost nothing about poetry lol
Well then you’re my favorite wandering spirit.
But you are a wonderful poet. 🙂
Thank you very much. I have kept my poetry from the world for most of my time writing, and it is so different to have it all opened up here in a public place. It has taken some strange life circumstances to force it here, but I’m glad you come to read it. It makes me slightly more confident to know there are people who can relate to, or at least appreciate what I think and feel. 90% of what I write will probably never make it here because I don’t like it enough, but it’s nice to share a little on occasion 🙂
I love this poem very much. It resonated with me in more ways than I have words to say. Thank you for sharing your work 🙂
That thrills my soul. It is always encouraging to know that something I wrote can resonate with another being. Thank you for stopping by and especially for leaving your thoughts. That means a lot 🙂
