A Poem For a Friend…

Posted in Poetry, Ramblings with tags , on 2010/02/06 by R L Burns

I’m quiet, he says, but

Truly he is not.

He is as loud as a snowstorm,

As bright as the sun –

His words more than whispers

He is equalled by none  – when

He speaks we all listen, our souls enrapt

In the magic he sings us –

His tune forever trapped

In our hearts.

whats there to say?

nothing’s okay

i simply can’t sleep

once again

my mind won’t slow down

it’s all jumbled now

all i can hear are your words

claiming you’re not my friend

the sheets sing

their sad lonely song

they miss the days

i’d take them along

to visit you

i’m crying outside

while dying inside

i just can’t seem to

get over you.

Promises, Promises

Mr. MoonAs she dreamed, his

words flowed through

her mind, some

I can’t.  It’s you and me

until the end.

Those words streamed

by in a whisper with his lips

against hers.

No more time for lies,

baby girl.

You are the one

love of my life.  Will

you marry me?

Again kisses, this time

on her neck.

Without you I might as well

put a gun to my head

because I am done.

These words tearfully sworn.

You belong to me! screamed

at her as he pounded

into her again and again

demanding her submission, which

she willingly gave.

Be content.  I am coming soon.

We will hold and

love each other for the

rest of our lives –




Ah… those were the words

written across the inky

black sky

in achingly beautiful

silver letters.

She looked up at the Heavens

and smiled, her heart

bursting with love,

trust and joy…

Until Mr. Moon

showed his face and,

with a smile and a wink,

he took a deep breath and blew the words
