Looking #poetry #lostlove #rejection

 

I seek the approval of…

a lover

a friend

an intellect

a poet

an artist

 Hopelessly flawed

no one to

gaze

into my eyes

at the stars

share…

life

dreams

todays

tomorrows

Come write a …

symphony

a treatise

a legacy

a love song

Can anyone find me???

***

he loved her so

cold winter solitude

lost in the  night

Moondustwriter celebrates 10 years of  blogging on Word Press. This is an archived poem from the first month (with some changes). Poetry is cathartic and I hope anyone who needs to blow off steam finds the outlet in writing.

As this posts, I will be in Africa doing what I love – teaching the children I write for. 10 years ago this was only a dream now this is an amazing reality.

Thank you Word Press for giving artists, writers, poets a place for venting, a place to fly…

To those of you who have encouraged me to not give up (you know who you are) I’m sending a bouquet of Thank Yous!!!

Deceived #poetry #archive

The façade has an appeal to the onlooker

It draws one in to experience more

It appears to offer shelter

Hope seems just a little further

 

Look closer for the truth

Your eyes have been deceived

No substance -it is empty

The facade is a shell

Nothing to offer – nothing at all

Ripples of Life #poetry #photography

ripples of music

 

(archived 9/5/ 2012)

You have to fall in love

and lose it

to really know love at all

you have to wish on a star

and hold it

to catch the dust as it falls

you have to give

with your whole heart

 to embrace the weak and the small

you have to be pierced

through the middle

to understand the power of pain

you have to live life

to the fullest

to understand loss and gain

you have to throw caution

to four winds

to dance with life’s love in the rain

Life's Lessons · Poetry

Write me off #poetry #life’slessons

writing-a-letter1

As long as you relegate me

to the third person

I can remain in your jail

unwanted, unaccepted

blotted away as the ink fails

***

As long as you write of me

he,she

or it

then I can’t exist

in your word’s orbit

***

As long as you close the book

you classify me

old, dusty, archived

no memory’s smile

when you chance by

***

you hope that love

of the brown pages

becomes impotent

delving into me

time not well spent
