Away I Run


Away I run
   Deft feet of iron-shod.
My heart,
   Encased,
      In cloudy pain.
Ever ‘cross the road
   Of empty,
      I trod:
Live mem'ries
   Of lonesome's remains.

Away I run
   O'er paths
      Laden,
         With you;
Echoes,
   Of a smile
      Once bestowed
Upon these eyes
   You gazed in-
      Crystal blue.
Brimming tears
   O'er
      Our final trial,

Away I run
   From
      Justification,
         The lies you tell,
            To tell the truth.

Indeed, a hard path you traverse, my friend.  I hope new light shines on your destination...  and for God's sake take off those iron feet, I have some good tennies if you want them!!!

another perfect poem...and i have noticed your always have perfect and unique presentation as well.
strong emotions in this rather cryptic piece.
very nice
take care, jm

 Well the sun sets gently on your shoulders
And it makes me want to touch you there.
And the light in your eyes makes me feel
Like there's something much better out there
Something kind...
And I know someday I might be looking around
Trying to find some purpose
Well purpose it can't be that hard to find
As long as I've got the wind...
The wind and your love to carry me.

How sad and lonely.
I hope once your running ends, you will have arms to fall into...love anew.

Argh ...

Once again I have fumbled, and once again you have called me on it ... and you know how I hate apologizing ...

Chris, this poem is heartbreaking -- much more so because I know that you mean every word of it.  There is nothing more wonderful or more dangerous than being in love -- it is, in truth, the original "agony and ecstacy" -- and while I know that there is little that anything I can do or say will change about how you are hurting, I hope that you know I am here for you (as are many others).

It is always darkest before the dawn, my friend ... your "perfect woman" is out there, somewhere, and I pray that you find her soon.

Hugs ...

--Me

Whatever the motivation - this is...a poem that dances.

Christopher~
You write such beautiful thoughts
of love and love lost,
of hearts on fire and tears spilled
to put the fire out,
of gain and of pain.

Wonderfully talented you are, my friend.
Hugs to you.

I liked your "Ever 'cross the road of empty," Chris. Liked the whole thing, truth be told, but that line...you've got a marvelous penchant for independent thinking that translates with ease into your writing. This one is VERY nice!

The agony, bitterness and loss dripped from this peace my friend. Very well written as always.

Somewhere burried beneath that armour of yours beats a soft heart.

Hi Chris!

Hi Chris

I finally made it in here... you know me, takes forever to get to something!

I'm still jealous! I wish I could write half as good as you! But I see you have some heavy competition here! The poetry here is amazing! Thank you for telling me about this place!!!
