No Yesterdays

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .

no-yesterdays

No yesterdays,

all the birds have flown away,

there was no one who could stay,

now only gray and rainy tomorrows,

weave a path to my door.

loneliness began,

with the slamming of a door,

lonely dark nights,

nothing is right.

No yesterdays,

for they bring memories

and painful tomorrows.

Wish I could pack up all the sorrows,

have money I could borrow,

take a journey to the future,

leaving these yesterdays behind.

Wishing there was a place to hide,

I really hate taking this ride,

on the streetcar named Desire,

but your love must have only been for hire.

Smiles that warm the heart,

right from the start,

hand in hand with promise

and lying words of love.

The super glue,

cannot hold the pieces of my heart in place,

it still beats but like a piece of tattered lace.

Take me away,

to a place beyond the clouds,

where the sun shines golden,

where birds sing love songs

and the world seems kinder.

Don’t want the memories,

to come shining through,

all of the –

yesterdays…

Thank you, Shauna. The rhythm comes all on its own. I just let the inspiration take me to where it will.

You're welcome, Michael.

You have such a way with words. Recently I have been listening to the Beatles. Then as I read your hub you have used the Beatles song. I believe we connected on the same wavelength somehow. Wonderful moving thoughts I think often but never could express the way you do. Thank you so much for writing and sharing your gift.

Rasma, your poems don't often rhyme, but when they do, they really carry a punch. Although this one is sad, I was able to feel the heart and soul behind the words.

Nice job!
