I’m looking up to see the star, a silver sky in sunless time, the silver thought, in silver gown, the star is shy, my lips are dry, I’m looking up to see my gown, a shyness storm in sunless time, wait no more swallowed in delight, dark, purple leaves, a kiss so bright.
Poem from my book 'The Allure Of Time' now available on amazon. Go and order your copy.
She stitches on Her collection of plastic smiles To contrast her sad old soul
For her beauty radiates Youth and love While her eyes betray The demons put on hold
She wears the world's sorrows As a dazzling gown With her own monsters Clasping her feet
Reminding her of the Skeletons she carries With every step to the beat
Her eyes swim with horrors Of the nagging ghosts of the past But tonight she dances gracefully Across the floor of glass
And she'll save some words of conversation For every suitor coming her way
Though all the while she's planning out How to spill her own red On her own wonderful gown of grey
To mark Rebel Heart's 100th official poem in this amazing poetry community here's something special: An excerpt of the poetry collection by RH called "The Mysterious Gown of Grey"... it tells a beautifully captivating tale I can't help but imagine being set during the Victorian era in London. This excerpt was part of the first poem of the collection titled 'The First Masked Ball" and follows the story of Victoria, my favorite 'character' in the whole collection...I hope she plans to publish the full poem in the future for it'd be a shame to keep the wonderful words and epic story locked in a word document forever. Until then happy writing ~BM
not a beautiful gown not high hills I just wear my daily clothes with my old shoes I even can't apply make up on my face well
this head is still remember it that million eyes weren't look at me it wasn't like they did to another who has elegant costume well no problem, my heart said inside my ribs
that was my dream I answered so many questions I had a courage and a will but I thought that wasn't enough I need a luck my mom said that my crown is not the real crown because kindness will be your crown
I'm gonna take a wild guess I'm gonna play you a blind chess I'm gonna tell you how to deem I'm gonna build you in my dream You're an angel in a white gown You're the diamond in my crown You're the light glowing wide You're the prayer I always hide Now I'm awake and cannot see Now I'm crying inside your sea Now I'm handing you my last plea Now I'm giving you all of me
