Trembling underneath
A mask once hid it all
I believe you hold the key
So I'll go and take my fall

I would shake, I'd cry in love's embrace
The horror of the bitter past
Oh, how I've tried to erase
Society's stones cast, their stones cast
(so fast)

And my serenity; the stillness of my heart
Lasts for a moment, then the moment is gone
This yearning to be comforted by the strong
Within this fragment of time; passing, tattered and scarred

Has it an affect on my reflection?
Saddened by my image in life's waters
My mind to the West
as the East slowly sets

Trembling underneath
A mask that hid it all
I believe you hold the key
So I'm here to take my fall

I wouldn't shake, Yet gently I know the tears to come
with embers, sparkling bright
The stones cast, now just the past
As I take a deep breath, and breathe in hind-sight

At midnight's beckoning, A void left amid the dark 
Fadings; fragments, pieces, and parts
The weight becomes a bit heavy to bear
But it's a load according to who we are...

Could indeed, be it  love waiting?
....pass the glass....
Where softly tears fall
Life dreams through the darkness, 
~~where you are~~

    Beautiful vulnerability Cindy - motivating melancholoy - I admire the line/concept structure; its very effective and shows very good control of the language/concepts - the romantic metaphysics is the best part of all for me - J.A.B. %

    Spectacular in its expressive desire for more. Through the judgments, the conundrums, the just want/hope that something real is waiting at the end. Very, very deep. You have a way with words. I'll have a cigarette in your honor. ;-)

    Hi Cindy :) You did an excellent job with the revisions. Might I suggest....that you enter this one in the 'Fragments' contest.' I think it would do very well. Oh yeah, the only thing is that in the fragments contest, the title of the poem needs to be "Fragments." love and hugs, catie :)
