a face amidst a crowd

Hellooo everyone. Here’s a poem I wrote. Supposed to be all romantic and stuff. It’s supposed to all be in lower case by the way, ‘cos I can do what I like! Enjoy 🙂 xx

 

i always walk so fast

as if i could escape

the thousand glances

the thousand smiles

which hide shallow vanities

 

but amongst the crowd

a single face

stares at me and says

a hundred whispered words

and more

 

eyes rounded with a flick

gleam expectation

and perhaps possibility,

in bone and flesh

sculpted by beauty

 

when refinement so divine

looks at you

a thousand figures seem naught at all

mere barrier

to perfect wonder

 

mere barrier

to you

When Vipers Sing (Poem)

I see you crippled by the endless pains

Which claw at the mind and senses.

I see the nest of vipers whisper

Behind your back and

Sing songs of themselves.

They wrap the truth in skins of fruits

That are long since past their prime.

Some do think you cannot fight

Yet you fought in years of recent past.

Smite the vipers one by one

And beat this darkness alone.

Whispers in the Mind (Poem)

Why do the whispers in the mind

And scissor blades upon the skin

Inspire in me, so deep within

Words to feed my hungry soul.

And why does anger light the spark

Igniting fire within that dark

And destitute pit of trite.

No other time, does my hand move

And start to scrawl, with coarse approve

Verse perhaps with some slight worth.

I see within those strokes of pen

The grace of sound, and maybe then

My tortured, cheated, doomed pretence

Makes, to me, a little sense.

Another Poem… About Peace

Okay guys here’s another poem. You see I was thinking ‘Man, there’s so much conflict in the world. Why can’t we all just love each other?” Silly old romantic me aye.

Imagine a room

Silent of sound

Just a tabby, a hamster, a duck and a hound

Sitting together in peace and in calm

Without any malice, without any qualm

Just the love of each other

In them does bloom

In a small, and silent, sanctuous room
