Mortal fragility,
Immortal depth,
Inside a tempest,
Too painful to disect.

Words never spoken,
Yet understood,
Hopes often broken,
Losing the good.

A lifetime of unanswered questions,
An eternity of shattered dreams,
Even my lodgings 'tween Heaven and Earth,
Unearthed and ripped at the seams.

Broken promises,
Unrealised desires,
Nothing known,
Can quench the fires.

Immoral beings,
Draw force and gather,
There is so much more,
Much more we'd rather.

Past lives not known bring pain,
Futures unknown bring hope,
Finding the median is the plan,
Does anyone really understand?

Faded memories,
Dreams untold,
I'm already there,
Don't need to grow old.

Though I'm only in my thirties,
To me I sometimes feel old as time,
And you read these futile attempts,
To tell my story in rhyme......


 I'll tell you this...... No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn.....

We hear your story
Much like our own
We know your glory
The seeds that you've sown

Though fragile you are
And fragile you be
You're our shining star
Far across the sea. . .

Great poem Isis. . .

Yes. Doesn't it all seem so meaningless sometimes? But then there are the things in life that make it worth while. Sometimes when I just look at a cloud or a stone I feel really happy that I have the opportunity to be in this world! I wish it was possible to always feel like that! Great stuff. Sven's reply in verse is lovely, too.

hey there Isis
it's been a while since i've read you...
i had exams that i'm glad are over...
this poem was beautiful...though sad in a way...see you around...



 If all was light...then I would have never learnt the dark...from which such truth evolves
from which evolves the light...

Thanks Sven    I thought this was a slightly different style for moi'  
Lotharingia I like you look at nature's bounty and beauty and am glad to feel alive.  A walk by the ocean or in the rainforest or on the rolling green pastures always gives my soul a lift, trouble is with no car (hubby has it for work) I can't get there when I'd Like or NEED to  
Avanti,  Hi hon welcome back, thanks for responding.  Missed you round here

 I'll tell you this...... No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn.....

Yes kid it good.
But you have a full life ahead and it can change if you let it.
love ya kid.
Joel.

 I howl a mournful song, that echos within my chambered heart, for all to read? nay for all to feel.
