Best Kelly Deschler Poems

+ Fav Poet


My soul is like a deep shadow
you can look into my darkness
with the brightest source of light in existence
and try as hard as you can to figure me out
yet, you cannot see all of me
which leaves you to wonder.

You stare into these dark eyes
trying to see into my mind
like a psychic attempting to read my thoughts
my eyes sparkle and speak to your soul
without a single word spoken
yet, they do not say what is on my mind.

You think that I am hiding something
behind this invisible mask
even a microscope would not help you to see it
my enduring love is no masquerade
I am longing to show you my shy heart
which is the only thing hidden within me.

I have a loneliness and a shyness about me
that you seem to find rather intriguing
you speak and I can only smile at you
even Sherlock Holmes would have trouble solving me
I am a mystery known only to myself
and I would like to keep it that way.

    aha, so you must really value your privacy. This is so neat to read this golden oldie by seeing it on PD's winner list. I really like your style here. IF Frank is only asking for new poems in his I Am contest, that is too bad. this would have been the perfect entry to HIS contest@

    When stripped naked nothing is left to the imagination; same here, it is important that some things are kept personal...not wise to bare all :) congrats on a worthy win kelly. // paul

    I absolutely agree with you, Paul. Some things should be kept private and are not for the entire world to see. It is also more fun to keep them guessing! Thank you so much for the great comments. :)

    We are all very much our own enigmas. I agree with our esteemed friend, Mustapha; I love the honesty and confessional feel of the piece. Well done, dear sister! :)

    I like this one Kelly. Heartfelt honest expressions. You remind me of a certain confessional poet of old. Sent you a Soup mail.

    wow! Kelly, wow! I think you are the most mysterious soup poet. I like the way you carry yourself, and the way you write. Sometimes hiding behind the invisible mask keeps us mighty among our equally peers.. I'm just saying... they don't need to know whats under.. good Sherlock Holmes line :-)... always~ your newest fan...Linda
