I Hear Peace In Your Voice

Updated on May 2, 2012


I hear peace in your voice

Treasures hidden for safe keeping

Those bluesy eyes are not for weeping

And your song is destined for singing

As summer skies are open to ideas

Of distant thoughts and mixed up feelings

Of emerging emotions and new careers

And dreams misplaced in times a-fleeting

As you dry my eyes all wet and bleeding

Remembering past days of tears a-weeping

Filled with doubts and the darkest of fears

That you tried to drown in bottles of beer

Or choke with clouds of white veneer....

Yet,

I hear peace in your voice

Treasures hidden for safe keeping

Your bluesy eyes fixed upon me

As I lay by your side, sleeping.


Maria D'Alessandro 2012

      Nice poetry here, I like the "bluesy eyes" image a lot, works on different levels.
