Poetry

Chapter 1

Darling, I see you smile at me

You're smiling lights my very soul

I just want you to know you had me at 'Hello'

You are my courage

When we are apart I am lost

I seek shelter in your warm embraces

The storms around me can never enter

In your arms I know I am complete

Everyone before you was never good enough

I don't see anything after you

You look at me

You encourage me to keep fighting

Fighting a battle that you had all along

I am a dreamer, but if my dreams are our communication

I can live another moment in this paradise

Please don't wake me up, I don't want to leave this meadow

A meadow where our hearts, and souls are together forever

I can see you in my dreams

Never aging, barely over the years

When I frown that is because I failed you

I failed you in many ways

I took time that could never be gotten back

I thought it was more fun in greener pastures

But the grass is dying rapidly

Dying leaving me with only a shattered heart

A heart full of hopes that may never come

Hopes that I fear will never live again

Only in my dreams I am myself

I see you, and I am one of you

But now I feel so lost and alone

But I can blame no one else but myself

I got caught in a trap

A web of lies

Now I am just a willing dreamer

Dreaming things that are forever out of my grasp

Please forgive me, you don't have to like me, I just ask for your forgiveness

Then maybe this string of nightmares will end and I will once again gain acceptance.

Richard D. Cooper: I wish I could write poetry like this. It's clever because it also tells a story, too. I like the flow of it, the way sentences slip together as they should. Very good indeed. I have also started to read your others works, and will review them when finished. Keep going. Never stop.

maxniederhofer: Kara,I loved this. The one suggestion I would make is to show me, don't tell me. E.g."Now look at your skin / It is beautiful / You are beauty pure."It might be better to use more evocative imagery and language to make me feel, i.e. truly comprehend, the pure beauty, rather than telling me it is ...

Barbara Ivusic: I really loved this poem. Perfect use of imagery to outline the digital age. I loved the image of the olive branch and how it is posted for all to see but no one can touch it. Everything you describe is so true that it has become common knowledge yet no one acknowledges it anymore. I look forward...
