Eternal...Ethereal

Posted by Susan aka An Accidental Poet on August 30, 2013 at 12:25 AM Comments comments (3)

Eternal.... ethereal.


I see these words,

Digital tears of joy and pain spilled in letters and spaces.

 

They remain here, held together by pixels.

Unmoved.

 

Eternal.... ethereal.

 

I hear the echos of emotions, elation....escapism... eroticism untouched.

 

Touch me again...please...take my breath away....

 

Breathing in the heart sounds of another day and a love that will fore...

Never, still

I wander into the warm abyss of memories golden

Dreams unfold before me

Roses wilt

Daffodils open

The sound of warmth and a beating heart

Left there, miles away

Over me...

Posted by Susan aka An Accidental Poet on May 7, 2011 at 3:11 AM Comments comments (4)

I am a black hole of mass confusion

I am hate and disappointment

I am everything you do not need

I will love you but you will hate me

I will give you all I have but some how fail you

I can not see me through the trees of my own disease

I am blind

I think more of myself than I am it seems

I can't be to the lion what I am to the lamb

I am failure

I am a mistake

I should have never seen the light ofday

I have been search...

Clown Fish

I once did swim in a pool of rich and vivid colors

like a curious dolphin I did ride the waves of each current,

bravely going deeper into the abyss from da...

Leave Me

Posted by Susan aka An Accidental Poet on March 27, 2011 at 10:00 PM Comments comments (3)


Leave me to my heartache, leave me to its fate.

Let me listen to the silence, let me listen to what's at stake.

I want to forget what I remember, I want to remember what I forget.

Trace the edge of life's dull razor, trace the stains...

What Remains

We left our fingerprints there,


On chairs, windows, door knobs and things.


Our breath remains, surviving ever so slightly,

Another Lover's Mire

Posted by Susan aka An Accidental Poet on March 12, 2011 at 8:46 PM Comments comments (1)


My beveled view of yesterday’s desires,
fall slight to another lover’s mire.

Sinking, disappearing, under the pull of delusion.

Aching for what is now just a foregone conclusi...

Pink

Posted by Susan aka An Accidental Poet on March 11, 2011 at 11:12 PM Comments comments (4)



 

Blue skies.
Spring trees bloom.
Warm sun dilutes my gray winter blues.
A gentle breeze lifts a light cotton skirt.
Soft hair slips carelessly across my blushing face.
A wisp of air scented of bottled exotic fruit.
I smile.
Decadent pleasures of this season, new.

Limbo

Posted by Susan aka An Accidental Poet on February 26, 2011 at 5:02 PM Comments comments (4)

I am limbo.

Enslaved in my own indecision.
Enthralled by my own bad judgment.
Living in a demilitarized zone of self zeal.

Nowhere.

My self restraint to chase the unattainable.
Servitude to self respect..
Slavery to what is right.
Jailed in my desire to do what is wrong.
Bondage of a bizarre kind.

My Siberia.
My limbo.

Still unable...
