Seas of sorrow

the hole in my soul
makes every ocean look small
tears only fill gaps

I See Fire

Long Day at work
He returns
as a red-eyed wolf

Quiet room
and shiny desks
His minds keep busy

Eyes staring
on wet pavements
No more Fire

Then I See You
crow's feet landing on my eyes
Fired Up!

Messages conveyed
even a thick glass
cannot stop your anger

There is Fire 
in all working people
They all need a spark plug

The noise of nothing

cutting silences
nothing to be heard
sounds so vacuous

(c) Elly Wouterse

While reading Eileen Gahli's "The sword of silence" I couldn't resist describing
how it sounded to me..

tolerance's borders
never reach beyond aimed pain
a deadly frontier

tolerance's magic
can reach further than the grace
an extending hand

borders and magic
in the land of tolerance
curse or gift of life

PS. I am happy the judge tolerates the spelling of the title of this poem as I- of course :-)  tolerate the  - in the meantime corrected (!) spelling of the contest title.  Hoping I interpreted the contest description the correct way. Or was it your Italian 'heart / soul' speaking out : "tolleranza" (I know now it WAS Italian Pasion!) ;-) 
(I googled TOLLERANCE  and google gives only the following information - a very nice Italian coffee-bar and little restaurant in Kreuzberg - Berlin - Germany. Here's the link: 
So - in the end... nothing wrong with TOLLERANCA :-)

King of Hearts

                       Never to be loved
                     I'm the suicidal king
                   With hearts around me

The face of indifference

nothing more painful
vague masks of indifference
kill never softly

nothing more wordless
faces of indifference
so suicidal 

nothing more empty
void views on indifference 
drill to go ahead

(c) Elly Wouterse

'o love--why prowl on all fours'

o love! enchantress,--
ferocious temptress; (she roars!)
why prowl on all fours?
