    Shaded Memories

    What if I wanted to crawl?
    To shun this world away...
    Couldn't you let me disappear?

    Seeing you now.
    I can feel the ash from my heart
    filter to my lungs.
    Forgive me if my words are short.

    You will always be a part of me.
    In my red abyss. My imagination...
    Follow me down.

    But damn you, I will not give in.
    I will not bow,
    or hide behind a fake goddess.
    I will stand up and face my shaking
    that resides in your eyes.

    I cannot hold on.
    My grip grows weak,
    and you feed upon my flaws.
    But I will remember you,
    as you are.

    You are precious to me,
    even though
    I could do better.

    Now burry me
    in your thoughts of our love.

    "I will stand up and face my shaking reflection that resides in your eyes." — this line made my jaw drop, my heart heated up, and my mind felt like a shot of bourbon just hit it. This poem is as real as poetry gets. With this one, you have declared your voice.



    "I can feel the ash from my heart filter to my lungs. Forgive me if my words are short." — and lets not over-look this masterful music! Your infectious emotion laid-out here is superb.



    Thank you, Dah. :) You are amazing.

    When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

    John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
