Red Eyed and Liquified

I feel the rain
Flowing down my face
Reminding me of tears
on my etched skin tracing
My spirit looks forward
But my brain is backward facing
It has been oh so very long
Since this heart has really spoken
waterworks haven't happened 
and my soul is choking

So I lift up my eyes
towards the night sky
I have lived one hundred lives
without really trying
each different and the same
living and dying
same patterns repeated
through the universe flying
Looking learning laughing
sometimes wisdom applying 

I have reached the final stage
my heart now feels like dust
My soul is drenched steel
overcome with rust
Each life taught me something
I'm trying to adjust
Dust to mud metamorphosis 
This body might bust
A cry baby wannabe
filled with pain hope and lust

The cradle of life is rocking 
Under the weight of contemplation 
I feel the bough is breaking
Into the ground 
I'm slowly sinking
Can you feel my body shaking
It's all a bad dream
I wake up tearfully crying
True or false
I think I might be lying
Lying here in my bed
My red liquified eyes 
are in need of drying...

    Poetic-minded people must be doomed to introspection. I marvel at those who say they have nothing on their mind. Thanks for lending word and rhyme to what attacks me. You did almost too perfect a job, nearly sufficient to let me think I'm normal.

    A meaningful and emotive poem, Richard. Not all men cry, but those who do have nothing to be ashamed of. // paul

    You've been writing crafty and well designed verses awhile now, Richard. Creativity is easy for some, I see! Be blessed!

    Great description of emotion, Richard. I love the images you use, and especially the phrase "my heart feels like dust".

    Very incisive poem, Richard. The deep introspection of this poem is a revelation to the soul. Breaching ignorance of self-motives is an elevating, liberating experience. Seems those dried red eyes are geared up to be transformed into bright eyes and take a quantum flight in enlightenment. Powerful poem, my friend.

    Cry, it is a relief. Lost love is a ways like that.

    Wonderful expression of feelings's as if your dream is saying time is slipping away and you need to make your mark in this world.
