Words

Posted by Pye in Poetry | 7:20pm


These words on paper
Tame useless words
cannot explain the turmoil

My lead-like emotions
my choked throat
glazed, over bright eyes
Blue words on white?

Dulled pain of loss
Fresh stabs of hurt - at memories
That everyday mask with people
Can words convey?

Staring into nothing
As thoughts rage
Caged, in my mind
-- Words fail.

I see your tears

Posted by Pye in Poetry | 9:44am


I see your tears
In the dead of the night
A dream or real - the sight?
They feed my fears
Alone with my plight
Too many visions to fight

I see your face
And the pain in your eyes
Where something slowly dies
That empty place
Where quiet shadows rise
Mute helplessness replies

I see your need
So stark, nakedly shown
Which you try to disown
You gently bleed
But walk on alone
To another world unknown
