One More Try


Stale and innocent I close my eyes.
Unpolished bones inside.
I mock my dreams, in hope I find reality.
I swim like streamers near an undying sea. 

STALE ............
INNOCENT against a stetson smell.
I CLOSE the door that circulates my emotions.
MY EYES, allergic to the the smallest particles of your  lies.
UNPOLISHED beauty, that can't be seen with the naked eye.
BONES INSIDE shiver like no other.
I MOCK the same words, over and over. ((I LOVE YOU))
MY DREAMS keep me from fading. 
IN HOPES I wake up to feel more alive.
I FIND REALITY when I close my eyes.
I SWIM LIKE the open sunrise.
LIKE, the moon you come and go.
STREAMERS NEAR and far, move real slow.
AN UNDYING SEA, I just want to fall and jump right back in.

    Linda These words are hopeful and gives the reader a sense that dreams don't have to die. Even if they take forever to come true, never give up on them Great job Hugs Thanks for the 2nd place with my Trickery poem.

    Linda; This is beautiful. I love you. I remember saying those words many years ago, about a thousand times. They didn't work, so I never said them again - not even to my husband. I was too afraid to say them, but almost at the end of his life I did. He had earned them. Sometimes, people are afraid to love. Thanks for sharing. Your friend Lucy

    This one is quite different my friend. "MY EYES, allergic to the smallest particles of your lies. UNPOLISHED beauty, that can't be seen with the naked eye." Great lines in this superb verse. Congrats on your well deserving win. Love and best wishes...Ravindra...Poet D.
