Weep Words

Please enjoy this song with the poem “White Flag”~Dido

where joy abounded now the noun is pain

Weep Words
~*~

Have you ever seen a poet weep words?
they fall in short stanzas to the ground
they’re salted with a touch of hopelessness
might break a heart while they are falling down.

Sunk in quatrains of such deep despair
where joy abounded now the noun is pain,
the guilt conspiring in a symphony
a sleepless and remorseful dark refrain.

Have you ever seen a poet  fade away?
like mist upon a shore at purple dawn
a substance that dissolved before your eyes
doubting  faithlessly the road she’s on.

Perhaps you have, but had to turn away
knowing that no counsel would relieve,
the dripping drops of melting human verse
that land on nothing that you could perceive.

Have you ever seen a poet weep words?
they fall in short stanzas to the ground
they’re salted with a touch of hopelessness
might break a heart while they are falling down.

    your words speak from the alive awake substance within that fights for freedom from the brokenness of the twisted fabric of delusion, into the Light of Truth. You Path is deep and inspiring, and thank you for sharing it….

  2. Thank you jan for your beautiful comment. We poetic types, like you visual artists, both seem to stream tears quite easily, from the saddest to the most beautifully sublime… all expressed in salted little drops…just mine change into words..before they hit the ground:) and yours might change to layered colors:)

    the weeping words should be caught into a mixing bowl before they are spilt into the ground
