Wild Ride

Off the sidelines, wile ride, run and hide

But life won’t wait, boy, so take the bait

Of pumping adrenaline you can’t escape

Before we crash and burn in torn pages

Of all the past ages of history, our story,

An unexpected tale of historic confusion

With little expectation of any redemption

Yet will your love surely save our souls

From the hounds of hell on this wild ride

As we duck and hide and abide together

In some long lost forever land at hand

But still unseen on this wild ride of life

Abandonment

I knew before now I’d have to let you go,

Say good-bye, heave an anguished sigh,

Yet never imagined picking up the pieces

Of this torn lease on life so rife with pain

And suffering in torment of loneliness,

With sanguine platitudes in false attitude

Of assurance of better days still in store,

Though your eyes tore my heart in two

When at last you proved to be so untrue

To love, loyalty and the dignified royalty

Of your right-born, high-heavenly nature

Now lying like dark blood soaked cloak 

Discarded old and worn on earthen floor

Lost Innocence Regained

Writhing in agony to find again lost innocence

In the real presence of peace without penance

Or any pretence of greatness without humility

Yet always asking when will it all finally close

And open to something beautifully brand new

In which this tired old soul can live once again

Within the magnificence of an eternal youth

No longer bounded by limits of space and time

But simply free to be divinely innocent forever

Shoulder Which Upon to Cry

Angel eyes, hide no lies

Give me your shoulder which upon to cry

Loosen the noose around my heart

For you to love for me to play a better part

Wash away all pain of fear with my tears

Soak your cloak in my flood

Blood of my soul, you’re in control

So offer your shoulder which upon to cry

Angel eyes, hiding no lies

Riding: A Ten x Ten Descriptive Poem

And do we find our way from yesterday

Riding forward through time eternally,

Rising up from ashes to make our way

Fast into bright sunrise so carelessly,

Nor in one place do we intend to stay,

For the best of life lies in the seeking

That we continue without any pause,

Riding from day to day without breaking

In what is now our everlasting cause

In an endless love without forsaking

 


Note: Here I have followed a ten-line scheme, with each line containing ten syllables, and with a rhyme scheme of a, b, a, b, a, c, d, c, d, c.  Also, I have written the poem in a creative description of the illustration/artwork. However, I have no name for this form. Suggestions are welcome … unless, of course, this is already a named form! For now I’ve simply called it a Ten x Ten Descriptive.

To Drink Deeply: A Diabolo

You inflame my heart above all,
As you save me from one more fall,
And recreate
For me what is right, good and bright,
Shining in my heart your life light
To drive out hate

I come to you naked in love
For your sweet nectar from above,
To drink deeply
From you like a hungering child,
Now at your bosom free and wild,
Not discreetly


Note: The Diabolo is a poetry form invented by Dennis William Turner, writing on All Poetry as Dennisturner19, and it is a poem of two six-line, iambic stanzas. Lines 1, 2, 4, and 5 consist of eight syllables, while lines 3 and 6 consist of four each. The rhyme scheme is (a, b) (a, b) (c, d) (e, f) (e, f) (c, d) and (g, h) (g, h) (i, j) (k, l) (k, l) (i, j)

Day Meets Night to Play

Day meets night while night meets day

To say hello, fare-thee-well as they stray

Across earth and sky so high, so low

In slow rhythm of love above all else

As two children at play with sun, moon

And stars from afar to glitter so soon

Like an exquisite boon from heaven

To leaven the compassion they cherish

Before they perish in the sea of eternity
