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..

  4. Moonlit- starlit nights bring out the best of your emotions. Nights do have a tendency to bring out all the sadness that exists in the nooks and corners of our hearts. The nice thing is the morning rays bring hope with them. Profound and beautiful lines, Yassy.

  6. my o my ^ your “silent” speaks volumes and truly strikes a cord (Elephanta Island, long ago, willing my sunken moon to come into view). You have a wonderful way with words for, with that ensemble of only 42, you paint the moment so deeply and richly.
