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.

Perhaps, though, you could reflect the hope in verses 13-17 of Psalm 90 a bit more. A suggestion: in the current version, Mal seems to be losing hope in the idea of...

preety_lady_serenity: I really liked the poem. It created this picture of a baroque style cafe that you kind of enter it to feel relaxed and yet you feel trapped due to outside circumstances.I especially loved the writing style, If one looks at it, it does look like a birdcage which is an excellent image to fit the po...

Medley_Cafe: By far my favorite of the three poems I saw you have! I was almost singing it for myself!Though if I may suggest a few changes that will make it flow even better?1st line make 'eye' 'eyes' as to rhyme with skies.2nd line end it with a full stop7th line "to see magic things"; make 'magic' 'magical...
