I want to write
Yet the words
Does not flow
As I feel them arise
They fall like snow
Reach out and touch them
However, the moment
It graces your warm flesh
It melts against your palm
and Disappears.
Like a forgotten heart beat
That once was heard
Yet is now stalled
And faint.
An Echoed whisper
Of what is about to come
What once was pain filled
And sorrow ridden
Is now beautiful in death
In that knowledge
That what was once dead
Will be reborn
The words I once
Found so hard to grasp
Have finally rang true
So, Let the bells toll!
Once.
Twice..
Nay, Three times...
Fore life once lost
Is found anew.

Denise & Lorraine... Thank you   I think it is one of the worst feelings when you want to write what your feeling but can not find the words to express. I had been feeling like that for a few days, writing something only to dismiss it... perhaps now I have broken through the barrier. I'm glad you enjoyed the poem!

You described the feeling of not being able the write perfectly, in fact that was quite haunting.

An Echoed whisper
Of what is about to come
What once was pain filled
And sorrow ridden
Is now beautiful in death
In that knowledge
That what was once dead
Will be reborn
The words I once
Found so hard to grasp
Have finally rang true

great images, loved the poem.

"Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too? "
Douglas Adams.

Small Black Flowers That Grow In The Sky

"You have your very own number
They dress your cage in its nature
Once you roared now you just grunt lame
Pace around pathetic pound games

Wanna get out won't miss you sensaround
To carry your own dead to swing your tyre tricks
Wanna get out here you're bred dead quick
For the outside,
The small black flowers that grow in the sky

They drag sticks along your walls
Harvest your ovaries dead mothers crawl
Here comes warden, Christ, temple, elder
Environment not yours you see through it all

Wanna get out won't miss you sensaround
To carry your own dead to swing your tyre tricks
Wanna get out here you're bred dead quick
For the outside,
The small black flowers that grow in the sky

Here chewing your tail is joy"

Cydney--

I really enjoyed this poem a lot. I think this is an excellent poem and am glad to see that the words are once again "flowing" for you. Take care!
