Poetry Train…

Another Monday and another poem. This is another one I wrote for my third Home book. I think I’ll have all of Derek’s songs written before I start the book. Haven’t thought of a title for this one yet. I’m terrible at naming my poems. I guess I think it gives what the poem’s about away. πŸ™‚

Song # 3

Your lonely eyes steal my soul

One piece at a time.

Your soft and brittle smile

Breaks and mends my heart.

With strong arms, you

Hold my body tight.

Trembling hands

Touch my heated cheek.

In dreams, I

See your face.

In streets, I

Call your name.

The world tells us

Love is wrong.

Especially when we’re

The ones in love.

Yet through the

Yelling and fighting,

I can still hear

The steady beat of your heart.

It leads me in

A dance

To find freedom in

Your lonely eyes.

It’s still a little rough, but the feeling’s there. πŸ™‚

Hope everyone has a great Monday.

    I really enjoyed it, especially the part about ‘when we’re the ones we love’. That line can be taken in so many different ways, and all of them very moving.

    great stuff πŸ™‚

    Yes, the feeling’s there.

    Be proud of this one, TA. It’s lovely, on many fronts.

  5. Lisa C. says:

    That was lovely. I’d call it “Your Lonely Eyes” since thats how it starts and ends.

    my fave is the “yet throught the yelling and fighting I can still hear The steady beat of your heart”

    that just sums up marriage/long term relationships for me…at least, the ones that are likely to last.

  7. Anne Douglas says:

    ooh, I like that first stanza
