In the space between moments

0 posted 1999-06-16 01:34 AM

A child cries out, lost in the night,
A tiny bird falters and falls from flight.
Emerald eyes glisten from newly shed tears,
And a lost soul looks back on the wasted years.

A family screams out for the loss of their own,
The sun that once shimmered is now barely shown.
Warm, balmy breezes have now turned to ice,
And a once happy life is now not so nice.

A heart once brimming with love is now closed to all,
An invicible being has taken the fall.
Compassion thought to stand for all of time,
Now holds no kind of reason or rhyme.

I once thought my life was easy and bright,
But now upon me is a seeming eternal night.
My soul was alive with you by my side,
But along with you, my heart has died.

I know that I should move on, leave the past behind,
Go forward and seek the hope I need to find.
Yes, I realize this, I know that it is true,
But things just aren't worth it since I lost you.

OMG...this is really sad
i havent seen much of your poem, so i decided to see the first poems posted from the start of the forum. This is beautiful Krista....I didnt know you can write so well. Never really read much of you poems. This has definitely impressed me

LOL, it surprised me to see you searching me out, acire....this is a very old one...thanks for reading it and I'm glad you liked! One of my better old ones I guess...some are horrendous though, I'm warning you! LOL. And as for my poems, you've got to dig around, but I have a ton here...things have just been slow lately for my poetry...but heck, there are always slow times, so I keep on plugging away...

The sweet turning sour and untouchable...
