Sometimes I Write Poetry..

Sometimes I write poetry.........
when I cannot find the words I am seeking I let them flow from a place that has not yet been hit by the critic, via the back door where the meaning can be felt, when the mood takes me and the murmerings of my heart want to be heard from a different place. Where the soul and the spirit is illuminated and can just be......

I hope you enjoy my offerings when they come...

Didn’t realise until it started, 
out of the blue, 
dissatisfaction ebbed its way in
then came the sadness and the loneliness.
Despair had crept in through the back door.
Now there is the longing yearning at my heart
Reminding me of what has not been said,
those missed intimacies,
now two strangers,
glances exchanged
will my life ever be the same?
What is it?
the longing
weighs me down
Where is it,
where does it live,
I try to identify make sense of it
My heart,
I hear a faint cry,
my heart is crying out to be heard,
I thought I knew what I wanted
I sigh,
my heart was never involved
only thought it was,
made practical decisions at the time
No one was supposed to get hurt

  1. So lovely to let the heart speak through poetry, Amanda. Your poem matches the colours of the picture. I've just done the same, and let a poem come through in my latest blog post:
