tim's Bits and Pieces - 53. No Hearts and Flowers

There's love here, but this is not hearts and flowers, not even close. This is raw poetry from the heart.

You take my hand and we walk in fields of flowers

And though it’s winter, deep and bone chilling

You walk in summer in this dream we share

Through my tears, I see you, with me always

 

And I wonder what you’d be, if you’d lived

But, ever to me, you are young and laughing

I will live, like you asked me to, but … I pray

Pray that this isn’t really all there is

 

My thoughts stray ... to life and its significance

And how truly little it means, and we

walk on the graves and bones of ancestors

Generation after generation living and dying

 

While we build and destroy, murder and die

Over and over, eyes forward, don’t look back

Yet I cannot help but reach for your hand

Smiling, you reach out; hands turning to bone

 

And I pray we will get back those stolen years

Logic rightly screams at my foolish longings

And I know what the likely truth is

But my heart doesn’t want to hear it.

*****

Thanks for reading.

Twenty minutes is even better.

When I imagine a poem being written, I think more of it taking days - or at least a day or two - to put the right words to paper so to speak. Some minds are just made the right way to have an idea or a thought to be able to have it come alive like this.

Yeah, often they do take days. I like to leave them usually after i write them .. cuz things still happen in my head. I'll change it, move things, change things around.  My poems for the anthology have been written for a month .. i finally decided they can go to AC today.
