Poetry Monday

Two more poems to start the week.

The Smile

I look across the room
Searching through the
Crush of bodies
Seeking a familiar face.

I settle on the soft gaze
Of friendly eyes
Staring back at me
Slight wrinkles at the corners.

Projecting their amusement
At being found in the crowd
Lowering my gaze to his mouth
Lips turned upward parted slightly.

Misery

Your words wound more deeply
Than the sharpest blade
Your eyes show no loving gaze
Only the icy stare of hate.

Your touch is cold and hard
No gentle caress
My words fall on deaf ears
Only silence from now on.

A life together
Without love
Forever to live in misery
Loveless and lonely.

Poetry Friday

Here is another attempt at poetry. I think I like writing poetry. I’m not sure I’m very good, but it is fun.

Lost Love

Tears of a broken heart
Flow abashed down cheeks
Trust lost in a moment
Takes a lifetime to regain.

Pain deep in the core
Of one’s being
Will always just below
Waiting to resurface.

Eyes forever show
A haunted gaze
Remembering love lost
Wishing for a reprieve.
