covered back to head

for every time i said it wrong
for every wind that banged its gong
for every day i hoped to see
the better parts that thrived in me

when you whistle only tunes
then only notes will fill a room
and one day i hope to master
reasoned thoughts of falling faster

to the drift of journeyed minds
where no hunt is all you’ll find
and then on aspects of that day
a soul’s respect will have its say

if burdens take you down
if heavy words are empty sounds
and if a darkness crowds the facts
for all frustrations love compacts

then go and listen to the trees
allow your soul its bloody knees
regard the place where worlds divide
when next and next are side by side

for every time i said it wrong
for thoughts and words that clashed in song
for memories held as bitter lights
i say good day, you say good night

  1. I like all of this one, but especially
    “then go and listen to the trees
    allow your soul its bloody knees
    regard the place where worlds divide
    when next and next are side by side”

    You have such a way of making readers think! 🙂 There is almost always more between the lines that isn’t said in your work than for it to just be simple poetry. That’s one of the many things I like about your writing.

    1. thanks, it’s hard to find that balance between substance, yet letting the reader develope their own interpretation. i like to have a feeling in mind, if not a complete thought or point….
