Poetry, Paintings, and Ponderings: Through My Eyes

Troubles April 30, 2014

Filed under: about me,Poems,poetry — rainey46 @ 3:37 pm

can we leave our troubles behind?

we’ll cleave them into minuscule pieces

then toss them, one at a time, into the breeze

allow the wind to waft them all away

like colorful confetti in a hometown parade

never to worry us again

never to be seen again

never again.

Life.

live, laugh, enjoy

love, trust, respect

lose, cry, sorrow

hurt, broken, lonely

grow, remember, live

Life.

 

 

 

 

I’m Drowning in My Own Blood March 19, 2014

I’m drowning in my own blood~

it pulses through my veins

boiling, bubbling, tumbling

from fingertip to toes.

 

I’m drowning in my own blood~

it covers me

it fills my greedy lungs and steals

my final breath.

 

I’m drowning in my own blood~

my eyes wide open

I watch until the very end

my last view is crimson.

 

I’m drowning in my own blood.

 

 

 

 

Promises February 13, 2014

Make me promises

of better days to come

I need to believe

there is still hope.

Make me promises

even if they are lies

of love yet found

and smiles yet seen.

Make me promises

of a future worth living

speak of beauty

I’ve yet to see.

Make me promises

that forever you’ll stay

holding me close

whispering new promises.

 

 

Snow Limerick

There once was a snow storm in the south

It hit us like a punch in the mouth

We bought milk and bread

then hunkered down in bed

awaiting the thaw of the south.

Majestic

softly falling snow

colors the landscape with white

erasing all flaws.

SNOWFALL

 

Where Were You, When I died? February 1, 2014

Where were you, when I died?

Watching the game

with your hand deep in a bag of chips

licking the bits from your fingertips?

Where were you, when I died?

Driving to work

mind drifting and problem-solving

as you dart in between the cars?

Where were you, when I died?

You were right here

beside me, looking past with glazed eyes

as I crumbled.

You were right here

and you never even noticed.

 

Breadcrumbs January 14, 2014

I look behind me

And see

Scraps of paper and

Digital bits

These are the breadcrumbs of my life.

Will these be all

To show I once lived?

Or will evidence show

That I mattered?

Only time will tell.

Until then follow the breadcrumbs

To find me.

Telephone

Telephone (Photo credit: plenty.r.)

 

What would have happened

 

if I had answered the phone

 

Would you and I be the couple

 

on the cake happily ever after?

 

Or would we hold hatred

 

against our cold, broken hearts

 

throwing looks that kill

 

and tossing deadly, verbal darts?

 

The choice was made for us

 

I, unaware, was never informed

 

of your efforts to reach me

 

and life carried us apart.

Your words

taste like sweet honey

as they slowly drip down upon me

Your lips

speak of love and promises

and our beautiful future together

Your hands

cup my breasts

thumbs teasing me with soft circles

but,

Your eyes

give you away

inwardly gazing on the hollow truth

my eyes

refusing to see

closed to what they reject.
