Wayne's Poems - 1. Chapter 1 - Broken in the Dark

Looking in at broken parts,
To mend is all he needs,
Scattered pieces strewn about,
Like windblown tumbling seeds.

Fractures there, he sees them march,
Helpless to stop their spread,
"Open up!" he screams in vain,
Words pound upon your head.

"What can I do to help you?"
His voice stirs something there,
Wounded eyes take in your knight,
He holds you with his stare.

"Broken love is all I have,
I don't deserve you here."
You try to roll away, apart,
To free him from your fear.

"You think I don't know your dark?
You think that I don't see?"
Saddened smile, gentle hand,
"I'm here to set you free.
The pain, give it to me."

Beautiful, Wayne. Don't say you're not a poet. You are.

I’m still a dabbler compared to some.  But, I do try, so thanks.  😘

Ha.. moss does not grow under your feet ... i'm glad you posted it .. it deserves to be here.  not everyone writes poetry like i do ... non-stop ... they write it when the time is right and there is nothing wrong with that ... or with this.

Well, thanks for pushing me to post it, tim.

Thanks.  🙂

Be nice to your keyboard! It is your friend, and new ones are expensive.

That's how it feels to me when something needs out.  It turns over and over, twists, claws, until I set it free.  That's how it feels.

Wonderful poem, Wayne. Rich with emotion, and I can so relate to the sentiment. That moment when you don't want to burden another with your troubles, but that person insists that you let go - and so you do.

Thanks, Mac.

 

I'm both thankful and a little saddened that this resonates with so many.  I wish there wasn't so much pain in the world, but thankful love allows us to shoulder it.
