Bright and cheery as the sunlit gleam off the seasoned leaves With peaks as high as the surrounding sound And yet as approachable as the dawn which streams Into the Meadow of the long lost wood Where every childhood memory can be found Pure is the light which envelopes these scenes And pouring out is the heartfullness of each and every noted sound
As a dear friend you care for me Sure as the air I breathe To love me anymore than this Not sure if I believe Each day anew the Sun will rise But nighttime hides away Thus, your love and affection If here, will never stay
Was given Cinderella's ball Before midnight's last strike Must scurry from the pageantry Else, face a certain fright Extravagance would disappear Revealing to the Prince Her true self in the deepest way The pains that made her wince
Afraid once she was vulnerable Find out was all a lie A ****** that would pierce through her heart With certainty she'd die Truth though, if given that moment Each flaw the Prince could see Each one a part of Cinderella; Part of her beauty
Suddenly, she understood She did not have to hide What was closed off long time ago And buried deep inside Still with some fear, her heart she gave And with a lightning strike Fulfilled with happiness and love And stepped into the light
I was toiling over the structure of this poem. I often like short succinct lines but almost every even and odd line are paired and could easily make four, four-line stanzas each with 7 iambs. Curious what others might think. Any comments are appreciated.
(Y)our eyes hold the stars at night (O)ut or everything your smile I miss (U)sually I kind of forget you but I remember now
(W)e did almost everything together (E)very day we talked (R)andom phone calls were the best (E)very good memory I made with you
(M)emories made under starry skies (Y)ears of laughs, tears, and smiles
(B)reathing had become a struggle (R)ight now I’m shaking (E)yes closed tightly (A)ches deep within my chest (K)eys given that lead to hearts (I)nside my hearts in pieces (N)othing is left ok (G)oing on is getting harder
(P)ieces cut me almost like glass (O)utside I don’t show anything (I)snide my hearts in pieces (N)othing left standing in my way (T)oday I will end my pain
Read and put together to first letter of every line.
My mind is so full of clever tricks and I believe them to be real, so I give up and it's bullshut! I can't be your hero please don't put that heavy burden on me, it's flattering but surely not fair. Please decode my mind even though I don't explain or share, I stare!
