You have walked into my Diary. Welcome! Hopefully, my musings will touch you. Check out my novel "The One That Got Away" on amazon http://tinyurl.com/ljcj8xh

Crimson

Dappled sunshine in the shade

Surrounded by brilliant rays

On a bright pool day.

I attempt to nestle in the slatted contraption

Of rubber and metal

That is a chair

In the warm shade,

And I bleed.

 

My children frolic and splash

And sometimes

Show me tricks.

I smile and wave.

They do not know

That my soul bleeds.

 

I am a constant to them

As the rustling palm trees above their play

As the kiss of the sun

As the embrace of the thick, warm air.

I study the enchanting puffs that are clouds above my day

And contemplate how

To staunch the flow

Before too much

Of my crimson soul

Soaks into the concrete

Below me.

  1. Wow! That was very cool. It sounded like a great teaser for a monumental novel that I would be very curious to read… See, that’s the thing about poetry; it can be taken so many different directions. That’s why the art can be very beautiful, but very haunting, too. I’m standing here (yes – I’m standing in front of my dresser) wondering if this is some piece that came to you in the middle of the night as a wonderful gift to be shared, or if you’re in a terrible state and I need to call for help!! *cups hands and shouts above the splashing* C’mon, kids! Can’t you see mom is hurting? 😉

    How have you been, my friend? It’s been too long. Still busy?
    Whatever you’re up to, I hope you have a great week!

    • Hi Jimmy

      I will admit that I have been rather sad lately, but I will get over it. In the meantime, what better way to express it than a poem? Thanks for your care and your compliments. 🙂

  2. Beautiful work, just beautiful 🙂 enjoyed it
