Petals

Poem By cameron bird

The petals float downwards
Into the drifting river onwards
Farther and farther out of reach
And I cry silently as they leave

I am barely holding on
To this room, to this night.
I have postponed the fight
To stare to where they have gone.

The petals float downwards
Into the drifting river onwards
And I want them back
In a world of shaky truth
This is fact, I want them back

The petals float silently downwards
From a dying lilac, tears go with them
Into the drifting river onwards

Comments about Petals

This is a most evocative piece with a flowing rhythm that enhances its melancholy. Bitter/sweet beauty. love, Allie xxxx

Memoir To C.S. Lewis And J.R.R. Tolkein By C. Bird

To the legends and myths of old
The veterans of the hazy road.
Sparkling images of heroes and knights
Victors of those glorious fights

Running

Running to understand.
Running to know who I am.
Running to be alone.
Running to be able to groan.

A Boys Love Poem

I am so lonely and alone
In a strange and far away place
And so now I write in a sad lonely tone
Of my heart aching at the memory of your face,

My Fair Silver Maiden

Oh my fair silver maiden
I see your eyes in the stars that light the dark,
Your hair in the swaying summer grass,
Your smile in the majestic sunrise

Once Upon A Time

There used to be happiness
In the cloven fields of green
A time when there was no risk,
When the golden trees would ring
