**Editors note – I have not posted any kind of poem for quite a while and thought it was time. Hope you enjoy. If you do  I’d appreciate some likes and shares as well as some comments. Thanks, you guys are the best!

___________________________________silver-coins

Hardline walking, anger shaking, fire underfoot;

can’t explain away the pain, peace won’t stay – too scared to move.

Confrontation, conflagration, unexpected complication.

No exaggeration here.

Fear breeding fear – living life alone; scales won’t fall from my eyes.

Wash in the pool, dive in deep – sow but don’t reap

Betrayal by silver – guilty, driving in the dagger a kiss on the cheek;

there is no difference.

Stuck to a tree, ashamed to wake;

fever burns with tears.

Alone – please leave me alone.

Please don’t leave me alone.

    Mick, a man of many talents!! I also write poetry, and I enjoyed this poem very much. I liked the imagery. I like parallel structure – so I appreciated confrontation/conflagration/complication.

    But I especially liked your last two lines. How often I have said those same words to the Lord. Leave me be, please don’t leave me. I think you captured something profound about the human heart there.

    Great work – enjoyed it.

    GOD BLESS!

      Sharon,
      Glad you liked it. I used to be very hesitant to post that sort of thing but I recognize God’s given me an ability to work with words in several capacities – not just comedy, thought that’s my personal favorite.
      I still find it interesting how people read a poem and find what they find. Glad it spoke to you. There are more on here somewhere if you’re interested.

      Have a great weekend.
      Jesus Loves you!
