Look Deeper, Listen Harder

Poem By Taylor Hainline

Was it meant
To end like this
All set up
Like a restricted bliss
Never to be remembered
But the scars
That linger on arms
Tell a different story
A silent echo in the night
No one heard
The pounding of moonlit teardrops
Was it meant
To hide the light
And give them no reason
To continue this fight
A missing son, daughter, wife
Will be searched for in the night
But a missing heart and mind
Who's to look for
While they're alone
A simple smile
A gentle hand
Can clean their eyes
Find their minds
Give them something worthwhile

Comments about Look Deeper, Listen Harder

A very impressive humanistic piece of work. Thanks
There is a very deep soulful rhythm to this piece... its like it is designed to be sung but not in a harmonious lovely way but in a dark searching voice... very well done, Taylor

Little Angel

Little Angel
can't you see
this world
Isn't for you and me?

So Selfish?

Is it selfish of me
to wish you were here?
Even though it's your dream
to travel the world?


Look out with eyeful
tell me what you see.
This world is full
of make believe.


Are your hands gentle enough
to wipe away tears?
Strong enough,
to fight fears?

I Say, They Say

They say this love
will leave me sore,
broken-hearted and torn.
