I Seek an Open Cloud - a Poem

An open cloud shows promise, as she would relive old hopes from demise.

"I Seek an Open Cloud"


Vengeful, unforgiving, but retreating

For enough of hate there is a fleeting;

Mighty hands will break through the cloud

And God will see a fearful me, too late to shroud.


I let it go, and go it shall

Poison stings, disgrace morale

A steadfast tongue, confine in a deceiver

Trust may not, slander from a believer.


Yet stoned I am, hurt and hate still show

My heart dictates- “Let all them go”;

Bitter they are, knowing I not keep one

Altogether blind to see them come.


Heartbeats bear painful strikes

Scars sore a hundred wrongful spikes;

I seek an open cloud, bright in wonder

I seek an answer, a whispered prayer.


But to heal, time is slow

Teardrops break, like glass they glow

I feel alone, no friend to call

No day to pass, dark shadows fall.


There is no understanding, worthless to fight

Non-stop beating drums,­ a depressing plight

The stings, the drums, an enduring bore

An open cloud, I seek once more.


A beautiful creature, wings caress

In silence, emerge on a floating nest;

Amongst smoky clouds, it seem so free

A gaze I see, heavenly straight at me.


An embrace of hope, an abounding grace

A smile I give, a hum of praise;

Arch too vivid, a climb to acquire

A sign of promise to fulfill my desire. ≈♥≈

      Hi Cris! Just happened to open HP late. Taking a little break for the meantime. Got some priorities at the tip of my finger, you know. I miss following lots of hubbers including you and I know there are lots of interesting hubs to catch up. :)

      Very powerful poem from a beautiful creature. I haven't seen you around HP coffee or is it me who's hibernating in the summer time? Hope all is well. Love to you~

      I love this poem. The bleak clouds, the tears, the gathering storm, the hurt and the heartbeat all flow into those beautiful last lines:

      An embrace of hope, an abounding grace

      A smile I give, a hum of praise;

      Arch too vivid, a climb to acquire

      A sign of promise to fulfill my desire.

      The embrace of hope. What will life be without it? what will love be without it?

      beautiful wordcraft.

      Hello tobusiness! We have to struggle a bit to fight against frustrations, sadness and unfortunate events so to comfort ourselves whenever we could because I believe that help starts from our own selves. Solely, we have only two choices. How ever these choices are expressed depend upon us; we hope for ourselves and to others that a positive outlook will win over the presence of negativity in our lives. So goes:

      To fall or to rise.

      To be in deep s*** or to smell flowers.

      To curl up and cry in a corner or to get up and wash off those tears.

      To aim for revenge or to humbly retreat.

      To walk through a rugged path or through a dense green field and so on...

      Thank you for your wishes, tobusiness!

      Hi sweet Audra! We have our tearful moments and it does kind of stay permanent (for me) when it crosses my mind each time, I can't hold back from crying. I know, I don't drink 8 glasses of water a day, too much salt perhaps? LOL

      It is sad when you consider some people as "friends" but they really don't deserved to be especially when they have put you in an unfortunate situation. We try to stay good and keep our swords from striking at them. Let our shields do the work instead and protect ourselves without harming anyone. And yes, when I see an open cloud, I feel that God is watching and sends his angel down to guide me.

      Love you and thank you so much! Cheers to you, Audra!

      Hello BeyondMax! Thanks for your kind words! I guess it is easy for me to be expressive in my poetry for any sad situation. But I would make sure to break the barrier there somewhere and as Ebower says it "I really like how the poem ends." :) Thanks again!
