The barriers between us

electric light in your eyes
vibrant colors blew my mind


the barriers between us wear me thin
like claws in my skin, dug deep in
hiding behind teeth, shielded with a smile
taking my all to breathe
I know i'm stuck here for awhile.


love is like glue
my heart for you
frozen solid in the gap of time
somewhere between the righteous & divine
I fail to reach...
my voice is fading, growing weak
hands are losing grip, holding nothing
you are like a beautiful star in the sky, somewhere up high
lost to my touch
reaching up & getting no where
if I tried to speak would it be too much?


buried in the sand
like every secret
behind a wall
imprisoned inside us


until then i'll wait in this cage
wondering when you will turn the key
when will you set me free..?


trust me when I say it's everlasting..

...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

  A very deep poem, in



A very deep poem, in meaning and understanding. Whatever the barriers, true love and real feelings and emotion between a couple is the real freedom. Just as importantly is individual understanding of freedom, a person true to them self is a very forthright person and strong. It was a pleasure to read your poem I read it three times; each time gave more meaning. A realy interesting and entertaining poem, that has the reader drawn into the poem with greater involvement. Liked your poem a lot.
