“Come with me to Faery”

Will you come with me to Faery
a land beyond the shores of men?
It’s a land where hearts are made merry
that wander awake through glade and glen.

Take my hand my wonderful Princess fair
and walk the golden branched path with me.
Forest havens of Birch and Oak are there
to rest our waterfall gasps of glee.

Pools of shimmering glass shine the way
for our two kindred hearts joined as one.
Wildflowers paint a beautiful meadow day
of nature’s beauty on our faces as we run.

Our Father loves to watch us play
in our handholding frolic and mirth.
Casting all our energy in this precious way
exploring the gardens of our Middle Earth.

Threatening storm clouds are on a distant shore
held at bay by the rays of Heaven’s dome.
The days of years melt away into forever more
when we take this adventure back home.

My heart wants you with me forever in this land
where my soul’s dream is not fancy but perfectly true.
So my princess wife hold my aging hand
on our paradise walk behind the brown and blue.

Markkur to his Princess, 2011

Chronicle - The Fifth Fragment

In ways I have grown to understand
Partly on demand
How everything falls in place
How each of us needs some space

And I am thankful
For the lesson given

And I'm thankful
For the hate-driven

Individuals forced upon
My throat
To paint the world
In crimson's shade

Ink on yellow paper
Makes all the difference
in the world
So empty
Like a shell sitting dry
On the hot
Sun bathed sand



NoobX is this really yours? It seems so different.. from the rest.

103.65%, yes, that's mine.  I know it's different from the rest,  but I came up with it in mere seconds and put it on paper right away.  


I am...  healing.

To me, most sound like "lyrics" to me. Like they would be really good in a song. But this.. is a poem the way I like them. Nice work

Chronicle - The Sixth Fragment

The tranquility wouldn't last long
For the color started fading
The lack of proper shading
Made visible before the strong

Hush
Was all I heard
And I sat in silence

But I yelled
And that's when I felt
It doesn't have to be like that
And I spread my wings like a bat

And I flew away, away...

Chronicle - The Seventh Fragment

The more it lasted
The more I was losing touch with reality

It seemed like a dream
I dreamed every time

Over and over and I couldn't bear it
Over and over and overboard

Into the black waters
Into the den of life cutters
Onto the blade of a sword
Over and over and overboard

My wings gave up as I plummeted down...

Chronicle - The Eighth Fragment

Risen from the depths
A shadow emerged
A shadow so dark
It swallowed the whole world

It swallowed the whole world
But there it was again
Beautiful and serene
Without me within

Without me within
Without the shadow
The shadow that swallowed
The world as we know it

The world as we know it
Holds no place for the shadows
Holds no place for the wicked
Those tortured by the guilt

Those tortured by the guilt
Of a thousand mistakes
That none of them committed
Not even in their thoughts

Not even in their thoughts
Has a trial been held
They've been hanged in front of all
In front of all to see the shame

And they're still hanging there to this day...

“Auction”

The rocking chair is still,
The users have departed.
Dog-eared pages in the books,
Yellowed upon the shelf.
Worthless things made priceless,
Cherished by these two lives.
Time worn paintings displayed on the grass,
Beauty was in the eyes of the beholders.
Whose faces reflected in these mirrors?
What joys and sorrows surround these things?
Decades of change thrashed against the breakers,
Aged uniqueness hung on in personality.
The precious vase or favorite tool,
Stand empty and silent, the owner has left.
We check in without and leave without.
Things adorned fall empty to the ground.
Lifetimes of prizes become bargains,
Two souls collections dispersed at the auction.
The real legacy remains in hearts left behind,
Holding the essence of the lives.

Markkur 1981

One Soul's Canvas

I stopped observing the drops as they fall
Little droplets forming ripples
On the surface of my canvas

I painted men and beasts
I painted claws and fists
And with closed eyes I admired my work

On my canvas there is no more space
Hidden behind the paint are the regrets
Shut off from the world I live in

Now the painting stands like a victor
Upon the grey pedestal of concrete
And now the painting wears off

I know what must be done
I set the painting ablaze
I watch as the regrets melt away
I watch and I'm amazed

Dome

Under this dome of words
Under the invisible sky
I placed my soul
To keep it from harm's way
Under this dome of words
Foundation colapses

Frequently the dome falls on me

Support

These times seemed to be breathing
I had the feeling they were living beings
Malicious creatures waiting for their turn
To put acid on my old burn

Denied and forfeited
I almost left the battlefield defeated
But scarred mortals the future have defied
I stayed and lived when I should've died

Back against thin air
I push away the monsters that haunt me
Gathering strength from voided past
Yet again I'll see tomorrow
Grateful for my only support
It makes everything worth fighting for

Near me

When I sit on my own
When its quiet and still
When I'm feeling down
When I'm feeling ill
I hear your words
I know your thoughts
I see things clearly
You are still near me

When I look at my children
When I see their faces
They remind me of you
You remind me of places
My memories may fade
My senses grow weary
But even in the shade
You will always be near me

Don't sweat it.  It all comes naturally at one point or another.
