Market Place

When I am a afraid 
I close my eyes 
I hear a sweet symphony 
A thousand music tunes 
All at once coming through
Young girl in the market 
Yes, that's me , all alone 
 Eyes all full of mystery 
As I sing away the loneliness 
They say the most awful things 
But I hear violins when I close my eyes 
As I fly off to the center of my sun 
So I cannot be hurt by anything 
This wicked world as done 
Young boy in the market place 
He's taken by the men 
As he wakes, can't remember anything 
 They break the most beautiful  things 
But I hear violins when I shut my eyes 
And fly off to the center of the sun 
So I cannot be hurt by anything 
This wicked world has done 
As I look into your eyes 
I'm at the center of my sun 
The boy in the market place 
Sees the girl all alone 
Have you lost your way home?
I look up, I hear his voice singing.
I hear sweet symphonies in his words.
As I look into his eyes 
I'm at the center of my sun
And I cannot be hurt by anything 
Of what this wicked world has done!

    Merry Christmas Debbie! With open eyes, I hope you see. The goodness that can truly be. And when the darkness shadows life. May God's sweet angels stave the strife.

    though here we are mongst millions, sometimes the thoughts of one, separate us from the villians, the protective glow the sun....

    wow, this is really an interesting one. What country are you in? It appears that you are describing some market scenes not like in the US.

    I like this one..It brings up all kinds of scenes for me like an abused child, a person caught up in the sex trafficing market since childhood, etc..Great work that you have created..Thanks for stopping by..Sara

    Soon it will be christmas and then valentines day. Hopefully, there will be many acts of kindness. We shall see. Your comments to me have meant a lot. They are very kind. Finding the way home can be a real challenge.

    Beautiful poetry from your pen... sad but so engaging to read.... hugs Michael

    So powerful and you do get your point across, the write would benifit from a few line breaks for emphasis..break after [ This wicked world as done/line 14] This is an important refrain. So, after the next idenical line too. XXXOOO Light & Love

    Hi Debbie, this is an amazing piece,a great tale spun in the backdrop of societies less fortunate but with inspired hope. I love it. Blessings, Carl

    Debbie-you are absolutely right about Freud. His model is not accurate. I don't think there is a really good model for a human--at least not yet! This poem has a dreamy quality. Being able to fly is a wonderful thing and it's enjoyable that you let us experience it. Thanks for that gift.

    Thanks for reading and reviewing my poetry. I enjoyed reading this and no one can touch the center of you unless you allow them too. Take care. Janet

    Loved it! Glad you have a place of refuge! I sent you some soup mail
