The Walk-In

Updated on November 13, 2012

When hope is scarce

And all seems lost

Fear not my love

The die is tossed


When the clock

Strikes 3 a.m.

There is no telling

Who I am


Do not inform

One single soul

Not one, my darling

Friend or foe


The secret flame

Burns in my eyes

The smallest child

Will hear my cries


When my eyes

Have met your own

Eternal souls

Have found their home


I beg you

Breathe not one hint more

To see the wall

Become a door


Softly love

A silent swell

A heart that

Ne’er doth secrets tell


A ribbon

Of a promise shared

The real and unreal

Oddly paired


For all to see

The truth unfurled

Forever hidden

From the world


For to the eyes

Of you and I

The ground shall soon

Become the sky

We walk upon

The lowly clouds

While grass

Above our heads

Doth crowd


You kiss my eyes

I touch your skin

What once was lost

Is found again


But no one else

Will know it’s you

I to this secret

Will be true


Hidden in

The plainest sight

Where darkness shan't

Obscure the light


No one will

Recognize your fame

Because you have

Another’s name

      ...oh dear me - I so do love this one. Such a marvelous poetic narrative here because it took me away to a time and a place in the impressionistic cinema of my mind and I let it play out there ..... Your words are brilliant here too - they are sparse and simple but yet so effective and perfectly chosen - a humble but enthusiastic hubbravo from the epi-man at lake erie time 12:35pm and sending you warm wishes and good energy

      Lovely poetry, creates nice imagery..

      I have written poetry before myself, I can relate to your ability to capture your feelings and transform them into a great piece such as this one...

      Billybuc - you are a "fantabulous" writer! And I want to borrow that easy-going aura of yours! I guess we all have our favorite niches. IF you feel that about poetry (for now) - know this - YOUR writing inspires other poets - and helps other poets to have enough hope to keep going in this crazy world! ;) Oh yeah, one more thing - people used to tell me that I sucked at poetry - so either I'm evolving, or it's just a channeling thing. LOL

      Cam8510 - I so appreciate your feedback. This one literally just came in the wee hours of this morning. I was so tired - but had to keep going - it's a writer thing - I'm sure you know. ;) I know it's all subjective - as far as what is good, or not - but I am very pleased that it seems good to you! :)

      Heavenleigh, First of all, the metre is perfect. It flows and reads so easily. The overall meaning of love which has to be concealed seems fairly clear to me. I must read it several more times though. You have produced a wonderful piece of work here, at least it seems so to me. thank you for sharing it. Can't wait to see the response.
