self-aware

an all encompassing aura
engulfs my very being
as shadows of youth pass over
defining the face of age
thunder storms roam the night

I hold out hope in stormy skies
and open my heart wide
will the rain cleanse?

I can't begin to find words
to describe feelings denied
lost deep inside
there is no definition
or any true understanding
 
I hold out hope on sunlit days
and open my eyes
will I see?

an all knowing wind
howls and whispers of change
yet I can never reach the summit
perceived in my inner thoughts
just dreams never materialized

I hold out hope in turbulent waves
and open my hands apart
will love hold?

5-6-10
D.E. Clark

Excellent work, Dale !

The end of self-denial... a long path. And, as Kate said, the feeling that love and hope are forever linked.

Love this, Dale. It captures something that is quicksilver in the soul and so hard to articulate. Love especially the final stanza, connecting hope and love - can feel the strain on the inner emotional tensions like a three-fold cord... one busted, but hope and love holding firm. Great stuff! xx

POIGNANT PHRASES...THAT 'SEARCH' THE HEART, SOUL AND MIND...OF ONE 'FEELING' THEIR WAY...IN THEIR WORLD THAT, ADMITTEDLY, WITH TIME... HAS BEEN CHANGED, BY THE 'STORMS' OF LIFE. DONE WELL AND THANKS FOR SHARING, LOVE AND BLESSING, JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
