Lost in the music
of lightening and thunder
my heart swirls bitter

but not over you-

I'm just lost in my own mistakes
there's nothing here
that warrants your attention.


And the tears that cloud
the windshield
mean nothing.


It is for my ownself
that I cry-
my own falling heart
of blackness and remorse

I am its only keeper,
afterall.



------------------
And I thought: this is how poetry is born. It comes from invisible heights, it is secret and dark in its origins, solitary and fragrant, and like the river it will assimilate whatever falls in its current; it will seek a route between the mountains, and its crystalline song will ripple through the meadows."- Pablo Neruda

*sigh*...yes indeed, our emotions belong only to ourselves, no one can make us feel anything unless we allow those feelings...sorry, i guess i am rambling...loved your poem

If Haydn is the father of symphonies...And Mozart is the son of symphonies...Then Beethoven is the god of symphonies!
