A poem of compassion

Photo by pawel szvmanski on Unsplash

It is hard to free
the grown-up child
strapped in a body
full of pain,

Or overturn
a song
that isn’t over
Long dark nights
A lonely face.

It is hard to heal
a tired spirit
that denies
all it
creates,

When you try
to love
beyond the lies
You still find
ugliness…

Poetry

This is where
we smile again
On velvet green
A long kindness.

Remember us
All things we vowed
if you feel strong
or you fall
down.

We have shown
such gentleness
on strings of hope
Our endless
kiss

that stays
within
one ancient
soul,

Why you
made my life
remains
in…

Dark Poetry

Apart from beating life,
What is there to
recommend existence?
Spend your days
with those who
do not listen,

Waste your time
and talent
getting well,
for those who want
to book your seat
in hell.

Lose your hope
through all the pain
you feel,
that only death
may cure when
you…
