Tears Inside Her Eyes

Do not be fooled. Just because you see only one side of anything, do not forget there is always another side to it. Between publishing hubs,


Beyond the silent stars, over the green fields of yore
I flew with no effort, no labor, no less, no more.
I hear the fadeless waterfalls, I run through the roses
Many come this way, mostly the rich, sad, and poor.

Like well-timed machines ticking seconds gone
Daring the universe in evils in sight.
She's in sight, she's in darkness, then she is born . . .
Inside the caverns, without the needless light.

Wild ravens, dancing snakes, all in the sand
Charming, dreaming the fathomed dreams.
Holding her life, kissing her silky hands.
I stay for certain lengths, no plans, no schemes.

Just silent gazes, hypnotic batting of eyes
Without movement, without vows, we take.
Until eternal love, devotion, the ocean dies.
Knowing she loves, beauty in her eyes awake.

Thanks so much, Ann. May God bless you.

Yes it makes sense. Always good to have writing as an avenue for when we feel down, so that it can channel away to some extent. Like getting lost in a book, getting lost in writing is a good thing.

Dear Ann, my Sweet Friend: a sincere, caring 'thank you,' for such a warm comment. You are very appreciated by yours truly. Honestly, I do get depressed, and sometimes, it is very therapeutic to get lost in a 'sea of thought' and write about the area that is causing me such an amount of depression. Does this make sense?

Ann, you are a good friend. Write me soon.

Love the imagery and the rhythm in this. It's sad and colourful at the same time. Beautiful poetry, Kenneth.

(Ladies first)

My Dear Sweet GRL: you are way too good to me. Thank you is all that I have to give you now, but hopefully, (that) day will come and I will be blessed with tons of cash and take you and my followers on a twio-month cruise. Plus give you and others $50,000 just because that I want to.

Thanks again, sweet GRL.
