Human


Human
(February 20, 2009)



Toppled down
And all that’s left
Is the me
That’s hidden
Beneath these waves
Behind this sun
Under the blanket
Of these stars
I am hidden
And now
All is toppled down
I stand bare
A soul
That’s raw
My strength exceeds me
My heart feels
When all is toppled down
The walls are down
I bleed emotion
Stay with me
Touch me
Walk with me
Talk to me
Keep me
From drowning
Under these waves
Keep me
From burning
Inside this sun
Keep me
From being forgotten
Under the blanket of these stars
Without you
I am not
Toppled down
Without you
I am hidden
Stay
Topple me down
Stay
Touch me
Stay
Walk with me
Stay
Talk to me
Keep me
From being hidden
Keep the heavens
From reclaiming me
The heavens
They want me
For their own
Stay
Keep me
Human

  7. Charity,

    This poem is really good! I hope that you are going to publish it!

    Hey,
    All those books on my blog are not all reviewed by me. I am not like a super natural reader! lol Seriously, I only review some of them. I have however, been posting them all for the group.

    Blessings,
    Jeanie

  10. It sounds like you were in a deep place when you wrote this. Is this an old piece or did you happen to write it after the floods? It's very haunting, yet beautiful, like you needed to cling to someone in a difficult time. I'm probably way off right!

    I've got you down for the Name Party. I'm so glad you will be joining! I'm also sending out reminders next week, so I'll send you one too. Have a wonderful weekend and I hope the sun is shining there!

    Sergey...you know, I am thrilled to have a Russian reader leaving Russian comments on my blog! And I enjoy translating your comments on Babel Fish! :) I am happy that you find my google translator here very useful! :)

    Mike...I am touched that my poem was written on the day that your father passed away, and that that makes my piece more meaningful to you. :)
