silent

The stars come out
like lamplights in the silken dark
croonings of birds fade
nests lull their trembling feathers

I sit captive in
an angst that entwines my heart
tears dissolve into
darkening hues of the night
drenching my bossomed lattice.

  1. I find it hard
    to bleed my inner feelings
    tissues close to hand
    my tears write words i fear
    fortunately illegible
    ~~~
    tis early morning
    all in bed tucked up warm
    my mind set free
    the silence and me are one
    I reflect on yesterday
    ~~~
    poetry i wrote
    a cold eventful walk
    a little egret
    reflecting done fresh new day
    already pen to paper
    ~~~
    the stars their fading
    no its tears that cloud my eyes
    poetry precious
    as the hand from which words flows
    inciting fiction feelings
    ~~~
    words flow from my heart
    as blood runs through my veins
    poetry wrote well
    inadvertent transfusions
    inspirations from a friend
    ~~~
    Take care Yasmin, your words scare me!

      1. You write with great feeling its difficult not to read truth into what you write. It makes me feel so inadequate, until I hear those magic words, “It’s fiction”, however to me it’s like watching a sad, movie, even a happy one, both can bring an emotional tear to my eye. But, not for one second am I suggesting that you refrain from expressing yourself in anyway you want, no, just pointing out how powerful your words are, and how they an affect me personally. I find inspiration in all your work, and wait with baited breath for your next..
