I can feel the marbles
slipping through my fingers
little glass reminders
of what I am losing
The problem is
this is not a game
and only now do I realize
I never knew how to play

I always know when I click on one of your poems...its gonna be a profound statement
dressed in a very few powerful, select words...this one is that times 10...
awesome, truly.
your have a unique talent for less is more!
take care, jm

 The stars shine so bright, now's the time
I close my eyes - soft wind touch my face,
Cool sand upon the place where I once kissed you
And held you close.
Now I will reach for the stars...
Because Oh my love, that's where you are...
Though the storms of black night rage on
I still see your face
I still feel your lips on mine
And though my heart feels all alone without you
I still hear you sing to me
I still hear your voice on the sea...
vertical horizon

thanks, you always make me feel good with your comments. This is a new style for me and I found it is alot eaisier to put my thoughts out there when I just write it as I think it.

I really like this, particularly the "little glass reminders" image. A very neat perspective.

JBowie~
It seems that just writing it 'as you think it' is a wonderful avenue for you.

Take care ...
