Within the Midst of Angels

Contributed by Rakerman1999 on Friday, 22nd March 2019 @ 01:57:11 AM in AEST
Topic: oops










Within the midst of angels
Who bow in utter shame
Embarrased by your beauty
And the music of your name
You stand in solemn silence
On a pedestal of gold
And watch with frightened eyes
As your destiny unfolds


For a moment you are happy
Lost inside a peaceful dream
Where you walk among the rainbows
And you dance upon moonbeams,
But a rainbow cannot touch you
Or hold you close at night,
And you cannot kiss a moonbeam
Or make love to its light


So you cry in solemn silence
On a pedestal of gold
And you watch with frightened eyes
As your destiny unfolds
Standing in the midst of angels
Who all bow in utter shame
So embarrased by your beauty
And the music of your name


L. Carling

There is as much sadness here as there is beauty. You have a solid, solid knack of writing in the style of the old masters.
Be careful, or you will join them.

Oh, yes....of course. Barkeep! You know what to do. Do it@!

If your poem were a painting, it would be a vintage oil on yellow canvas, in a gold frame in a mahogany library. This is a treasure in rhythm and the story is melancholy with longing. The repeat of the opening theme at the end is a fitting finale, taking us back to where we began, as if there was no redemption from the beauty that imprisons her.
Another treasure for our collection!

into the mystic
rock their gypsy souls
just like days of old
Van Morrison

but L Carling I can tell
the spirit intemperate
at least this seems to be
beyond what people say

in any normal setting.

The confusion is too much
we got to say something,
well, better somehow.

You did.
those were your words man.
They look at you all the time
you must be an old average
white guy with white hair

Just honest and true
And I liked reading what you wrote
just enough to tell you so.

Because it was good what you said.
So thank you!

Peace!

kept reading this one
over and over
its a really good flow
if only one could kiss a moonbeam.

I/'/ve read and re-read this piece over and over. The emotion trapped in your words
at first felt lovely-- soft and caressing. With each read I felt the dread and ache the
subject must be experiencing at seemingly possessing what others would deem
important, but not being able to hold onto that fleeting happiness superficial
features or possessions may bring. Like a bird in a gilded cage.


so with respect and admiration, I lay a rose at your feet. @------>---
