Glimmer of your Shine

Glimmer of your Shine

 

I only want to see…

the glimmer of your shine.

 

Would you hear me

while you drown in your sallow…

painted

by the cower of your mind?

 

I know the place

where secrets try to hold…

the place

where loneliness is bought…

and dying to be sold.

 

The sideways glimpse

that dulls…

 

The one that triesย to hide

behind

grave averted eyes…

where bits and pieces fray

until the dimming

light

just fades…

away.

 

I know the cold that comes…

 

The chill

beyond the forbidden

door…

the one that cracked and closed

with sick regret

where wings were clipped…

as angels fled.

 

Can you hear me…

would you care to listen?

 

I know…

 

I only want to see

the truth

slip back into your smile…

I only want to see

the glimmer

rise above your waning shine.

 

I only want to see

you…

 

Move beyond the cold of loneliness…

that’s dying to be sold.

I have always enjoyed writing as a creative and healing outlet. Although I am not a formally trained poet, I have found a natural inclination to explore its remarkable power and beauty.

I gravitate towards rhyming verse, free of any constraints, and strive to create an experience through sound, flow, and imagery. I am a writer at Allpoetry.com. and a proud Mother of two beautiful boys.

Thank you for visiting.

    Beautifully constructed and with your flawless art of flow, thoughts rendered in fine poetic phrases that evoke so much: images, secrets, beauty and meaning worth the follow. Your work always inspires mine and I’m so glad you decided to join us here. Take care Mel.

    Nicely penned, Mel. I believe relationships are the trickiest things in the world. You’ve just confirmed my belief.

      Thank you William, I certainly agree that they can be…but please don’t let my poem be an example of all relationships.

      There are so many beautiful relationships to explore, that are honest, open and worthwhile. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The emotions running through this piece are painfully evident. It’s a heartache when love fades away, and there’s nothing you can do but watch. It is a lonely place. Well done.

    What a plea. It hurts to watch when we watch our loved ones start to break away. Beautiful. Thank you. Jamie

      It really does, especially when you aren’t judging, just understanding and present. Thanks so much.
