Emotional Poetry: Peace

Emotional Poetry: Peace

by Liam

Pull them one and all

Into the peace

The place they have known is the storm

Is the frustration and confusion

Is the lonely place of fear

Pull me into your peace

This place of quiet of quintessence

It’s in me too

It’s a gift of who

I also am

We also are

Peace be with you

Peace in me too

Peace this simple

Peace

Love Poetry: The House of Love

By Liam

Love Poetry: The House of Love

In this house of Love

I am bewildered with your beauty

This structure is made of music

This floor dances to your body

Listen to the words

As you spin within my chest

For that movement becomes the poetry

Unaffected by the rising or setting

For our home dances through the universe

Hand in hand

In love with love.

Poetry Poem: Light

Poetry Poem: Light

Written by Liam

Body lives in the world

Mind lives in the universe

Your light though is brighter

Beautiful like sunrise

Boundless like sunset

Live in it.

Poetry Poem: The Doll

Poetry Poem: The Doll

Written by Liam

Too long now have we simply listened

As the wind swept storm

Rattled the shutters

Stuffed the gutters with leaf with loam

Listened, yet never heard her tears

Watched, yet never saw her fears

She was rattled indeed

Wrecked from the inside out

Storm troubled

Trembled cried cowered and died

Though she never showed it

Either to you, me or who else their was to see

She swallowed whole oceans of doubt

Day after day

Waves crashed, smashed, up inside her life

Against walls built by

Her mind

To protect, to hold

Till it broke!

Swept away she was

Nothing but tears

Shaking with fears

Wet cold and lonely

Her soul a ragged doll

Caught by twigs

On a branch, in a park, in the dark

Still morning came

Warm strong that shone

In through her sight

Her dam had gone

The surprise of self recognition

The picture of her sweet self

Made her laugh

She was as she ever was

Only now empty cleaned nourished

Alone in light

Quiet too

Now she knew

She had never left

She had only just begun.

Poem Poetry: Ancient Africa

Poem: Ancient Africa

The heart of ancient Africa

Where wild the sea does foam

The plains the dust the thorny scrub

My soul it here does roam.

The breakers grind the ragged rocks

The shore line washed in salt

Of mountain far

Of high bright star

Of raging beast

Of insect cheeps

My soul this is its home

The drum of ancient warrior cries

Of spear the shield of hide

Of stamping feet of arms thrown high

It’s war that’s greets the long past eye.

My soul of this has known

The sun of a new day dawning

The moon of the night time done

The future star to hold my heart

The place I’ll never have to part

My soul, too this will grow

Africa is my calling

Africa is my past

Africa is my souls delight

Africa i call till last.
