Poems by E Horizon

It's gratifying to see how popular poetry is here. If its okay, I'll share some too. Im gonna start with the one that the International Library of Poetry published.

Alas

Alas, our love is broken now,
The pieces gone astray,
Haunted, lonely is the wreck,
Beneath the salty waves,
A blackened hulk where lights once played,
On merriment and song,
That plays no more,
In dark abides,
Deep currents rolling on.

Alas if I would salvage now,
The pieces gone astray,
A slimed and rotted gruesome thing,
Beneath the salty waves,
I fear no solace waits for me,
In dark and lonely deeps,
But a salty grave,
Beneath the waves,
Where love eternal sleeps.

Bombed out

A bombed out man,
In a bombed out cellar,
With no roof left to protect him from the weather,
He hides there still, too scared to move,
He's already lost all there was to loose.

He wonders why he survived all this,
And his mind fills up with his memories,
He wonders when it will all go away,
And can it still be alright someday.

He knows he's alive, but he's not quite sure,
What world he's in like he did before,
And it's cold out top so he's all crunched up,
Biting on his pain and his awful luck.

He just want's to stand where he stood before,
But he knows in his heart it's not there any more,
So he cowers in his cellar while the sleet blows in,
Praying for the sleep that exhaustion brings.

Dreamthief

I might have seen it from the start,
But for the words you told me,
Kind to heal my broken heart,
And loving arms to hold me.
You let me think the dream was real,
And filled my head with false belief,
And with my dreams you sought to steal
My soul, you are a dreamthief.

Now I don't care where your life goes,
Or where your journey takes you,
And if the things you said are real,
Then more fool you.
And wryly I look back and smile,
And shake my head in disbelief,
And I'll recover in a while,
But you, you are a dreamthief.

(Fragment) Night

Lonely night, how cold you are;
How big and wide and dark you are,
How soft and fine and deep you are;
Cradling the land in sleep, you are;
The most worthy of those you keep, you are
Gentler than the day, by far.
