Last week I had so much fun sharing an old poem I wrote I thought about trying to do a regular poetry night here on my blog. There’s all sorts of interesting things to do with poetry – my mind is teeming with the possibilities. Share with me and I’ll be glad to post yours as well. Leave a poem of yours in the comments or send it to me here:
Until I get some poems to share, I’ll share another of mine. This was written a few years ago during an emotionally devastating time in my life. When I read over it now it brings back sad memories and a sense of gratitude that all that is in the past.
Disclaimer: I have been criticized in poetry groups before because I like to rhyme my poetry. I still like it like that.
Fallen angel looking to the sky
Every star wilts her soul helping her to die.
Tasting heaven once enough to know what she’s denied
Crying…laughing…swallowing and accepting all the lies.
Falling through a sunset – grasping at the air
Wandering through a life that was never really there.
Embracing all things dark but can’t quite snuff the light
Meandering in circles between what is wrong and what is right.
Dwelling in dark places to taste a bit of moon
Stretch her heart with pain to create a little room
To drink in all the sorrow of the lost souls that she meets.
With eyes full of blank shadow she accepts that life’s a cheat.
Fool her once and she’ll come running
Fool her twice and she’ll be back
Denying all who care for her
Embracing all the lack.
Fallen Angel, darkened angel
Once dwelling in the light
Has turned her back on heaven
To fade into the night.
