Um...not my best but in the spirit of the challenge I shall keep moving forward. Do not think this one is complete, so suggestions for improvement will be greeted with the happy smile of artist fulfilled
Remember the false aching?
How imperfect beats forever trembled?
You believed the loving dagger with its false skin
like a sparkling jewel of promise
would end the yearning...
Your sweet emptiness would pass away
if only for brief moments
and that was good enough
to be called love.
I have 2 poems for y'all today seeing as I did not write one for Day 4.
The first poem was written using a instant poetry app on my iPad. When it was done, I had created this image in my head of refugee children from a historical war (the picture is of some French refugees from WWI).
The second was a blend of magnetic poetry (the first three lines) followed by a spurt of inspiration that the magnetic words couldn't keep up with.
Please comment, share, or plus?
The uninvited tremble...out in the cold
lost in the unfilled quiet
surrendered to the bitter bindings
their shrouded angel eyes fear nothing
Deep within a memory
her bright shining knight
fiercely promised the world
but the world was not his to give
and he failed her heart
with wandering eye and roving lust
so that no more she dreams
of castles and queens
or happily ever afters.
and I missed a few days, but I’m back and ready to keep plundering through this
challenge. This poem was written using a
magnetic poetry app on my iPad. No title
really jumped out at me so it’s remained untitled for now.
A charming black raven
Sleeps without a home
eyes linger on fine fields
wings open for flight, gliding beneath grey sun
hidden screams shroud eternity
the shining lady approaches
