Bending Space And Time


Bending space and time

bending another rhyme.


Words cannot be taken back,

They paint what we are and what we lack.


My apologies for what I cannot be,

I cannot see what others see.


And yes, I may be at sea,

But someone just has to be me.



I will not wish upon a star,

For things to be not as they are,

I will not ask that my burden ease

For there is only God to please.



I’ll dance alone with no charm on my arm.

I will make my stand if there is alarm.

No longer tough, I may seem gruff,

It’s God who gives me just enough.



I’ll travel the world like Marco Polo.

This is the journey that is solo.

Waste not words of regret that lovers say.

For the tramp and vagabond must be on their way.



The cow-poke loves the comforting word,

Echoed and murmured from the slow moving herd.

But he has seen the future and past,

And now the future cannot arrive too fast.



Satan can bend both space and time,

And change a poetic message into just another rhyme.

It’s not just inanimate objects that Satan might bend,

He can bend kin against kin or a friend against a friend.



I might see a sky of blue,

That may appear to be red to you.

Whatever color you see,

Nothing changes. I will be me.



It’s late in the day,

For this old boy to play,

I won’t have my say,

God will have His way.


 

I hold you in esteem

But I can have no schemes,

I can dream no dream.

And nothing is what it seems.



The maestro plays this one last score,

Hoping this ends this long encore.

Needing different music to explore.

This, and nothing more.

Beautiful, Micky. Love it! I love your rhyme and your message.

"I might see a sky of blue,

That may appear to be red to you.

Whatever color you see,

Nothing changes. I will be me."

Very true. Everyone of us can see different things in one simple thing, no mention in complicated matter.

Vote up and beautiful!

I hope you are always in good health, dear.

Micky Dee, once again you have touched my heart, you and me relate a lot, so many feeling are the same and nothing can change the deep pain. Humans can die of a broken heart, and to many cracks then it will stop. We all must say good-bye some day, some fight hard and others look forward to go to sleep. Fantastic hub Micky, you feel deep and so do I, thank you for allowing us all to see your soul. Love darski rate up

Satan may bend some but not all, your back against the wall, when crap is dim you see him then, the flash of the muzzle, the burnt shell casings and links dance on the ground, then you'll know a Marine has stepped in for ya, Bro. Peace and Love 50

I love you Darski. "Too many cracks then it will stop." I have fought and we get tired. But words of love lift us us. I wish I could be better at lifting people up. I have a ways to go. Or do I? God bless Dear Darski! I pray your daughter will be well! I pray!

Morning Michael;

Beautiful piece of poetry all expressive, all caring, your heart is giving, you are loved by many. Many of us are better of solo, for me I don't want others to bare my burdens, so I bare them within my self and work for my healing to be able to do more then I now can.

This is a beautiful piece of expressive poetry, danced on them tabs. the only dance floor I can dance on any more are all them wonderful tabs. love you :D hugs :D

You always seem to have God in your thoughts. I think of God a lot when I walk and I am sure as you ride your bike He is always there.

Your words are so expressive and the pictures too.

Thank you as always. I haven't had inspiration lately but when I get back my energy I will.
