I Seek an Open Cloud - a Poem
"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. ≈♥≈
