Metaphor Falls (for Poetry Rally)

Posted in Poetry, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 1, 2010 by dustus

Life will be better
Accepting it all
Splash screen dreams
Metaphor falls

What may exist?
Blindfolding hints
Dying to live. Well,
That wasn’t it…

Cannot think after
Brief disbelief
I swear my conceit
Delay all perceived…
Godspeed to taking leave

Clear blue sky in which
Pillow clouds lie
Water curtains fly
Mist veiling light

90 degrees, aimless and peeved
Hard to rest these pacing feet
Faith wore pride in cut-off sleeves
Journey being felt indeed

Can never say goodbye in time
Frozen sprays of moisture shine
Soothing like the moment sigh
Glimmer boring tears from eyes
Positive drawing, blood felt wine
Exuberant wishing
Missing
Fine

Thanks for including me in this rally!

My nominee(s) for said rally are Lord Emmanuel and wordwand. They’re both fantastic. I just read 2 poems by them, respectively, that floored me:
“How Long” by Lord Emmanuel

“End of Spring” by wordwand

Cheers Jingle, Em, and wordwand
