Poem #16 – What We’ve Seen


Well here’s #16. As you can tell I’m eight days off seeing as today is the 25th (though it’s early) I’ll have a day soon just to post a new poem every hour. More info on that in tomorrows post 🙂 enjoy.

If you saw me now
could you believe your eyes?
And we’ll sail on the outskirts
of my life.
When the time brings us surprises
and we’re crying on the floor.
When they left my life one day
my eyes still glued to the door.
Perhaps one day I’ll find the key
to ease my mind,
in the dark I will stumble
until I realize.
That skies bring us omens
and gray-washed hills;
doctors give us relief
with prescription pills.
Our eyes grow wet with
rogue-lost tears
and our diaries swell with
angst and fears.
Until the blood stains the page
and brings us back
until we can smile,
and peak through the glass.
I still stare out my window,
at passing gray cars
and at night I’m searching
for truths dancing in the stars.
If you’d seen their reflection
on the way down the street,
if you’ only know had listened
maybe then, we could all see.
