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

how it sounded to me..

Wishing and hoping and praying

waiting is killing 
fearful yet the need to know 
just moments away

prayed wished and worked
patience another challenge
life plays its own role

breathing in and out
walking simply step by step
how will life go on

somewhere someone's deads
are going to effect  lives
for better or worse

(c) Elly Wouterse

I can't see my strings;
But I know that they are there.
Who controls the bar?

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 :-)

With closed plastic mouth.

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
