Free Verse Poem Strength in Numbers

Free Verse Poem Silent Death & Strength

In, “Free Verse Poem Silent Death & Strength,” I find myself at the crossroads of life, of love.

In, Free Verse Poem Silent Death & Strength, here I know of the heartaches of building relationships only to see them crumble. I see what is and what isn’t. I experience only in hopes of something lasting forever or not at all. But, one thing I have found is I must surround myself with those who allow me to find myself for all that I am. In this poem, I am giving an example of expressing my thoughts to a special someone whom I would like it to be a “forever”, but, I am not certain he sees it in the same light as I do.

Free Verse Poem Silent Death & Strength

I could call you.
But I chose to let you marinate in
our exchange of words.

This rain, this morning I feel
drowning in pain fed to a drain.
Our silence.

The cadaver smell from bones of us
again I forage

you know, I’m not always crazy
but sometimes

the casualty in us is surrealistic
it’s there, or it’s not.
still, the rotting, the sting of the knife in my heart

Still waiting for pools of red to bleed out.
you have these ways of killing me softly
and don’t know it.

          1. Haha, so an Ivor poem is written.
            Rain In May

            The day is one of rain
            Washing streets of thoughts down the drain
            Cleansing the stains
            Drowning the silence again

            The day is dismal and grey
            Hiding the sun, it begun in May
            Years full of dismay
            Confusing times, in every way
