Will I be nevermore?

Updated on February 24, 2011

Evolving in the darkness as the light breaks to day.

Coming to terms with my soul as the dawn comes over the


And I realize that I am,

a child falling to their dreams,

rising to a woman in the ecstasy.

Transposed, or

Transpired. Inspired or,

Shadowed by the screams.

You have brought me to tears,

And made me realize all of those fears,

Illusions or perhaps enshrouded in a midnight cloak.

Engulfed in the darkest of bliss.

Will you provide me with light?

Or give me the necessary plight.


Will I rise?

Or will I fall?

Will you be there to guide me through it all?

Call out to me,


With this I implore,


Or I am afraid I will be nevermore.

      Dearest Qudsia,

      Thank you Darling Lady, and yes the words that play upon the pages are our emotions. They come from the inner recesses and dance with one another.

      It is beautiful, raw emotion out on a platter for the world to see. We self acclaimed poets and our words, the only way we know how to express ourselves play a beautiful symphony.

      @Ahorseback-How true is that, one burned finger is enough! I think I have had more than one in my lifetime! Thank goodness for that cream of love and that cream of others who can soothe away that pain. Thank you for your compliments Dear Man.


      @Diane-It is nice to have you back and thank you for stopping by and saying hi! And also for your wonderful compliments.

      @Epi! How could I disappear and be nevermore with your sweet charming words! You always bring a smile to the swell of my lips, and a song to my heart.


      @Saddlerider, very well said. I have struggled with this elusive thing called love for too many years, and have yet to find an answer. So I have caved into the passions of the loves past, the loves that shall be nevermore, and taking from each what I have learned and experienced. Some have enriched my life and some have not, but in each there was a lesson. And even a passion.

      Thank you Kind Man for your words.


      @Dream ON-Thank you for your kind words and thank you for "stopping" by. And those feelings I am sure we all have in one way or another. I just wish at times I could hide mine better, and at other times wear them upon my sleeve.

      Laurie I read between the verse and I to have struggled with trust issues in my life, after two broken marriages and many complications and losses, my soul became very tired and reclusive.

      I struggle with trust and live my life in the shadows of love, not venturing to far into or looking for it. It's a constant struggle in my makeup, I guess one of the plight's of life. LOVE is the most misunderstood and complex feeling for a human and I for one had my share of matters of the heart. Beautiful poem and written with deep feeling, bravo.

      ......will you be nevermore? And lose you as a colleague, a hub friend, a supporter, a confidant, an excellent writer and a woman with a pure heart and dear soul - gee I hope not - that would be a dark dark day in the epi-man's tenure here at the Hub - and what I need is light - the light which comes from you!!!!!

      "You have brought me to tears,

      And made me realize all of those fears,"

      My bad. Those liens sounded like betrayal to me. I wasn't wrong about the excellent poem though ;)

      Thank you all for your comments! And it is all about self-questioning and the fears of learning to trust, the fears of learning to trust one's own heart. Questions that my soul raises time and time again.

      Thank you all for stopping by.

      Blessings and hugs,

      Haunting words. I'm in agreement with Randy's take: coming to terms with self-questioning.

      Beautiful poem. We always have to trust again and take that out reaching hand.

      I didn't get betrayal from this. I got self questioning whether to trust in a man, trust in one's heart again. But that's just my take.
