Don't Go

Don't go
Stay.
Don't go
Stay.
I said no
But I mean, I don't know.

The black moon is drowning over the opal sea.
And my heart is a giant eagle beyond my will.

Hold my hand,
Please.
Hold my hand,
Please.
I said I'm not ready,
But I mean, I don't know.

The red sun is exploding in a plum blue sky.
And my heart is a giant eagle beyond my will.


Sleep with me,
Tonight.
Sleep with me,
Tonight.
I said I'm not sure,
But I mean, I don't know.

The Lightening in my soul is burning, burning burning.
And my heart is a giant eagle beyond my will.

    Haven't you got some poetry to destroy. Your comments are getting less meaningful so take your medication quick.

    I don't think you have to post rude stuff on people poems if you don't like what I wrote then just don't post! I am really new to this and some positive feedback would have been better!

    Are you talking about your Dentist? If not how would anyone know. It needs to be explained."

    so poetic and the pull and tug shown excellently by the line layout! Light & Love

    Dear Catherine - This is a powerful poem about unexpressed desire ... and I have been there, so I know. I love the colors you paint "red sun exploding in a plum blue sky." Could that mean love, intimacy and sexuality overcoming the blue cold of isolation? Just guessing; you tell me if I'm wrong. Anyway, bravo on a great poem. It speaks to me. Cheers, Don

    I am not a pro on any form of poetry but...I know when I read a poem if I have enjoyed it. Now I have read yours and I have indeed enjoyed it Catherine. I wish you a wonderful weekend and hope you find much inspiration to continue with your writing endeavors. Love, Carol

    I'm glad you enjoyed it Carol. The guy in the poem is long gone now. The one that got away. Still real in my memory though.
