odds and ends~poetry from lifesparadox

Updated on December 14, 2012

The Puzzle of Pain

Will the tears ever stop falling, do you get lost in the pain?

Can the mind ever be at ease, or is this an evil game?

Confusion takes hold and its power trip is strong.

You can ask the heart to grow colder. Has it been frozen all along?

The answers are well hidden or may be just impossible to retain.

Are these the questions that drive you crazy, or the ones that keep you sane?

Every Little Sometime

Sometimes I cry with you,

when you don’t even know that you’re

crying.

Sometimes I smile for you,

because you don’t realize that you

can.

Sometimes I sing you a song,

although your ears are not listening.

Sometimes I laugh at you,

so that you will find the anger inside.

Sometimes I stand up to you,

when you've fallen to your knees.

Every little sometime means,

through love I’m always your friend.

CONVERSION OF CIRCUMSTANCE

You’re asked

You step in

With only one foot


You’re needed

You step through

Cautiously one leg then another


You’re wanted

You jump eagerly

Whole body and soul


You’re questioned

You plant your heart

Deeply developing a core


You’re claimed

You become well grounded

Owning comfort as security


You’re ignored

You allow roots to loosen

Nurturing is lacked


You’re forgotten

You slowly stumble backwards

Pulling earth along with you


You’re impaired

You void existence

Disintegration lies beneath


You’re replenished

You salvage your step

A renewal of life unfolds


You’re reunited

You decline the obscure

For you crawl with just a seed

    Debbie, thank you so much, your comment is very inspiring to me. I have always written straight from my thoughts and heart. Glad to know that we think alike in these ways. I really enjoy writing and was always afraid to move forward with it due to rejection. Finally, I said to myself "who cares, I'm doing what I love to do the most and doing it for me and anyone who wants to read it." Again, thank you for the comment, voting up and sharing!

    Warmest wishes
