How Long Does It Take..

Poem By Iris Mista

Whenever a heart is bound to die
no matter the reason, don't ask why
whenever the heart did turn around
making that final splashing sound
how long does it take to heal
to recover the ability for life to feel

Is it possible to live a life again
I need to know, if so, please, when
when will the everlasting longing end
no more begging's for God to send
when will my splattered heart turn back
to bring fulfilling life, to end the black

My heart cripples, pounds and sighs
longing for hello's, hearing the goodbyes
the reality, or what seemed, turned blind
I stretch my arm, by touch, I want to find
the closed door to experience a tomorrow
and stop these yearning days of sorrow

Invisible Self

When I see your pain
Why doesn't it feel the same
Why does it hurt so bad
to see you so sad

Total Simplicity

I need to cut out the past
hours running too slow
then again way too fast
nowhere I can go

Where Are You

So where are you, in this beauty land to be
hidden deep down in a restless salty sea
in the darkest of all murky places
to cover up all different decrepit faces

A Little Rhyme On Pain

Is it possible to draw
a little rhyme on pain
Torn apart by a thin saw
driven to become insane?

Dreaming The Far Away Banks

In an abandoned space
One old and lonely ship
Blurred, without a face
tied-up to a rusty clip

Dust... I Am Dust

When I left
I tried to look back
hoping you called my name
