Immerse yourself – Poem


It’s been a while (once again) since I’ve spent much time on WordPress. Having done so tonight for a bit, the following poem emerged.

Immerse yourself

I look, read, absorb
And am drawn back in
To a place where
Wind blows through trees
Hearts beat to lovers tune
Moonbeams dance
Lovers trance
Pain is spelled in blood
Shot through lens
Poured out on canvas
Spilled in floods
Drained from veins through finger tips
Pounding out the words that express
Love, mess, torn dress society
Reeling from poverty
Broken dreams
Down in the dumps
Slowly rising
Dust swirls and twirls upward
As movement shakes loose dirt
Feet find earth
Hearts hope
Breaking free from doubts grip
Slowly rising
Expression clearing as eyes focus
Girl becomes woman
Shakes off the past
Boy becomes man
Guilt and pain won’t last
Not forgotten in haste
But no longer a binding disgrace
I delve deeper
Finding refuge in the swirling words
Images snapped and blurred
Soaking in others dreams
Thoughts, emotions, pain, joy
A place we can go
Where we know
Others have walked this road
Have gone where I may never go
Dreamed what I may have already lived
Understand, give
Open their hearts
And yours
Poets, photographers, artist
And dreamers of all kind
Building fabric that
Covers you with understanding
Heats your mind
Warms your heart
If you let it

    Howdy, Fella. This is very nice. It sounds like a movie to me… or is it real life? 😉

    • Alice,
      I hope you are well… I recently posted a poem after much time away (again)… I decided to go through some of my old stuff just to recall, remember and hopefully inspire me to get back into things here.
      I saw your comment (appreciated) and realized I never responded. This poem was written after looking at a lot of stuff here on WordPress. Much of the imagery was inspired by actual poems or photos I saw on that nights journey through WordPress.

      Hope you are well! Was sad to see your blog set to private 😦 …

      Peace,

      Stephen
