The Angels Cry

That day my words of love I did attest

Lying still, thy head metaphorically placed on my tempered chest

Sparking my placid heart to torrid blaze

My plight now lost betwixt loves divergent maze

I saw the lucent cinder of time’s static gale

Like a ship on ocean still, victim to a wind whose force did fail

Clutching to retain the life I once pledged to know

Now Hope abides, the angels cry, my heart swells with urgency to grow

Yes this day I stood on a hill and looking I did see

The abiding passion from your soul reaching out for me

Then without fear my eye’s tears, dare they shed

Oh! you thief of my heart. Now covetous of my head.

Standing now frozen in time by trepidation and stagnant fear

Scolding the moment that time manipulated me into care

Lost now in emotions is my reverend nature to be free

Succumbed, blinded by the desire to be one with thee

Thank you so much! I am no longer hesitant to share my poetry with the world. As an artist, I am my worst critic, and that is in every area of my life. However, I have found a wonderful, caring and expressive community among all poets and otherwise here on HP.

Venkatachari M from Hyderabad, India on August 15, 2016:

Awesome poetry with such wonderful, in-depth meaning. I admire your expressing skills and your above artwork also. That's why I started following you 2 days back.

Gina Welds (author) from Tampa, Florida on August 14, 2016:

Thanks, Ruby. I was always hesitant to share my poetry with anyone as it felt like giving away pieces of heart, and I wasn't sure if I wanted to be that vulnerable. I'm glad I decided to, and that I found this wonderful community of poets and writers.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on August 14, 2016:

Wow, you have a gift of meaningful words that make the reader stop and ponder each line then wonder if the critique was correct. I loved it. So happy I found you on HP, your poetry is a joy to read.

Thank you, John. I am trying to use more of my own photography and artwork in my hubs. Recently I've asked myself why I've been so afraid to share my poetry. When I started to do so, it opened up a whole new world to me here on HubPages. I am so glad I did! Thanks for connecting.

Manatita, thank you. I always wonder why names are given because my name was given for a reason. It signified royalty....Queen. Maybe my mother had a sense of humor. She was always the stronghold, the Queen, the rock that held us together. She taught me so much. May she rest in peace.

My name reflects the Soul's potential. This is the esoteric significance of spiritual names. They reflect the inner qualities of the Soul. Strictly speaking, only God-Souls can give spiritual names, because only they can see and talk to the Soul.

Nevertheless, most Souls manifest strongly what they are within, by what they do without. So a Bethoven, or Mozart, for example, are highly likely to reflect the music of the Soul; a Mohammed Ali, the Souls athletic prowess and an indomitable will....

Manas means 'mind.' In Yoga philosophy, the mind mostly works against us. It is usually very restless, untrained, disobedient ....in it lies the ego, separation, division ...still an illumined mind is also very, very helpful to the Soul.

Tita means beyond. Both words are Sanscrit. But together, they become Manatita. My name means: Beyond The Mind- In The Heart of Our Lord Beloved Supreme. If we do not live in the mind, then we are automatically in the Heart: childlike, spontaneous; likes to identify....become one with. Universal. Thinks more of 'we' and 'ours' and not of 'me' and 'mines.'

The name was given to me by my Spiritual Teacher in 1989, and it is how I am known in spiritual circles. Hope this helps.

Well expressed poem and great artwork accompaniment.

Hi @whonunuwho Thanks for visiting, and for your thoughts. Yes, these are my works of art. I am currently getting ready for a solo exhibit on November 5th, but thought it was pertinent for use on some of my poetry.

whonunuwho from United States on August 13, 2016:

Well expressed and very poignant. Nice pictures. Do you do the art work? Thank you for sharing this. whonu
