The End of Me

There are pieces I haven't yet shown. You see,
you hear, you taste, you sense... but is it real?
This is definitely not the end of me.

As the water gets immersed in soothing tea,
I hope your heart gets immersed in sound and feel.
There are pieces I haven't yet shown, you see.

And I will tend to these words that long to be,
as a blacksmith polishes bronze and steel.
In a lonely bliss, just my own thoughts and me.

I uncage these birds, let them fly and be free;
soar into cotton clouds and skies of teal,
yeah, watch 'em fly from sea to shining sea.

Climbing these peaks with bent back and broken knee;
still stealing every sight there is to steal.
This is definitely not the end of me.

I believe true beauty is never easy,
I may not win, but I will always deal.
For there are pieces I haven't yet shown, you see.
I'll give it all I got until the end of me.

    I liked this one a lot! I'm almost getting the feeling that your finally letting loose and saying what you are thinking, and that you aren't finished yet! I'm glad, never stop writing what you feel! :)

    Though everything you said is true it's also written to encourage me when I'm on writer's block... LOL! Ideas and thoughts will come soon enough... just give it time.

    Ha ha, I hope I'm not coming off as a person that's dead serious all the time. I will post some of my more comical pieces tomorrow :)

    I look forward to receiving more pieces, I have always enjoyed putting puzzles together. You are providing large pieces so you are making the work easy so far. Great poem.
