Rebirth – Poem By Bill Ivans

Rebirth – Poem By Bill Ivans

Breaking between times,Covering split wounds,Shielding, budding, sprouting. Triumphing over impossibilities,Recovering from lost love,Carefully, quietly, timely. Moving into solitude,Relying on nature's relief,breeze, music, and ideal serenity. Succumbing to metabolismFueled by hormones,Slowly, Chemically, Involuntarily. Molting, losing, letting go.Opening blinded eyes,And ushering in a new light:Regaining...
I know a girl who from an unriped age of nothing Was told to stay clear off an animal on two legs; A man: the very kind who had fathered her She was taught the survival skills she needed to use if...
Someday;The rain will no longer mock us;The cold night air will cease toStick her tongue out at our ignorance;The dark clouds will resign fate from scorning our chastity;The emotions we carry will break loose from the shackles of distance;The...
Let us speak, for these tales burn my throat As I try shoving them into my belly untold. These pains are too much – My eyes are gradually breaking into streams of river. My mouth vibrates, My tongue wriggle in discomfort. Breath now chokes – The...
If love is bondage, Then spare me freedom. If a cage is her treasured weapon, Then let me make it my kingdom. For fully did she catch me in her web, At the spot where help is scared to come – She's brought me to...
The battlefield feels like home – Every time I burrow myself in the trenches, Holding your photo close to my eyes. The bullets flying over head reminds me of raindrops. Raindrops that had us running for cuddles under the bed sheets at night. The...
I gave up on love a long time ago. All my life it has been wickedly abrasive. So a lion I decided to become – Neglecting the pack, to hunt alone. I was free and happy and alone. My meals full of meat;...
I gave up on love a long time ago. All my life it has been wickedly abrasive. So a lion I decided to become – Neglecting the pack, to hunt alone. I was free and happy and alone. My meals full of meat; void...
So I took my knees to the floor; Held my palms together; Interlocking my fingers; Bowed my head low – Resting it on my folded hands; And then closed my eyes, For that was how they taught us to pray. I wasn't exactly about to pray Because...
In the ashes of yesterday I stare at the vile image of my elongated shadow Sidetracking me to vivid embers of the putrid site. I was pushed to the periphery With spontaneous heavy crescendo blows, undressed and enthralled to bend over. I wished the...
To His Lover: Tonight... I'll tell the stars When my eyes are weary from the thick blackness of the night I'll tell the stars Of the one who sits at the epicenter of my world With a whisper I'll hold it close to my chest And...
In the middle of nowhere Where else do we trace our steps – Our fear has refused cheer With legs finding home elsewhere than the feet of chairs. Where else do we go from here! But let it be told – Let the young and...
Laughing Melodies... We sang songs Of our hearts, Music of our souls... We laughed at The Joy we Beheld In our eyes. We ran fingers Along each other's skins, Smiling unconditionally, We stared at twinkling stars Whilst burying our heads In deep hugs. We climbed ladders Together forever – Hand in hand. – Holding on...
Home No Longer Exist Here – Poem By Sanusi Emmanuel
Love they say is a patient feeling. Like Mount the Everest, Forever they say it is steadfast – Not changing, not yielding. They say love is kind. Driving the good Samaritan round town – Helping strangers overcome hurt; Melting stony-rocks embedded in hearts.. They say love is...
