Hourglass Sand falls Through the glass Love falls Within the past Memories dance They never last Head in my hands As I stare overhead At the hourglass Falling Down Stairs Stairs broken Wheels unspoken I fell Grasping for air Are you there? Piano Keys Playing me Rhythms dancing free Clouds in air Notes tossed in despair Are you there? Voices Echoes Broken wings Wounded sparrows sing Clinging to clouds high in sky Chirping symphonies Knowing not at all the why Never loved… Never loved… Never hugged In solitude wonders fly No one No one is there In the Key of Despair Tap tap Music in the ear Flowing freely in the salty air Beethoven, are you there? In the breeze, I hear the notes My mind runs away, it floats Pain drowned in the river Limbs frolic on shores of hope Keys somber in black and white As I touch them It conveys the fright Strings Choking, not me, but the air Credenzas and waves Washing away the realities Of all your trivialities Whilst I whither and fade away Inside a musical symphony Strangled on lusty desires Are you Are you there? Sleep Notes hither and floating in the breeze I look up The moon My last breath My last hope My last wish A kiss from the one I never met The moon hides under cloud My eyes in tranquility close The beat no longer in time No longer there Where ever I am going My last thought Are you there? Violins and Other Things Distractions Deformed from loves inaction Teardrops falling on time Rolling down passages Where darkness does dine Notes high, notes low Treble as I grasp the clef The conductor knows all that is refined In the end He shall consume the wine As I, was consumed by time Masterpieces The piano full of dust Brushes dipped in paints Now turn to dust There is a poem over there In the corner By the naked painting Of my Caribbean liver That cried and wept Day and night Night and day When willows swayed And the raven landed On the sill Of the empty room For I am no more Silence whispers Are you there? Guitar Strings and Clouds I caress the strings of discord Melodies shouting Displeasure Credenza’s and interludes Wine intrudes The senses squished like sour grapes Emotions boxed in crates I caress philosophy As my garden sadistically does undress Taunting the desires of my illusions unrest The rose and the rain drop Embrace I cry Last Act Once was life One…… tear… one tear…… drop One gasp of fear Fate licking……………………… deaths ear

Wonderful writing Arthur, this indeed is a tapestry of emotion, with despair and insecurity being the main threads, I felt every word, I agree with Jan you are a master of free verse. This is worthy of all the accolades given and more. My first fave of yours!

Individually these are stand alone exemplary poems, but as a collection, you wove them together with golden thread. Potd or not, it's outstanding.
