A little this – a little that!

Pained Memory

on November 24, 2011

To give you a little background, one of my sisters and I are writing a poetry story book. It’s been quite a feat to work on, but we’ve made a lot of progress. It’s not professional work, yes, but it’ll be a nice keepsake. I’ve been posting some of the poetry from the book on here already (The Clash of Nighttide, Rain, To Think of You) and I’m considering keeping this up. What do you think? This poem here is where the princess, (Vendaval -who represents the wind) is grieving the loss of her father. (King Cobalt – who represents the sea.) I hope you like this one! 

Pained Memory: 

Lost at sea she stands

With a seashell in her hands

Fingertips on quill

Eyes a misty hue

She flies between green and blue

Set with unquenched will

Ragged skirt a-blow

As she searches far below

For dusty memory

Wrinkled brow is set

Ocean spray getting her wet

Her heart burns “come back for me”

Who could touch her soul?

In a way hidden, unknown

Never let her go on

Whose hands could be so black?

They don’t surrender to attack

Now she sings a loner’s song

Striped down to the bone

Trembling shovel makes her home

Deep within the sand

Fears will burry her alive

Lest she fights what’s deep inside

She’s gained an empty hand

“Will, will you resign

Leave this starving heart of mine

A hole deep in my core”

“Longing set me free

Harsh troubles leave me be

Now I scar forever more”

Her heart lies in brown box

Eagle crest and golden locks

With cold stilled heart

Something inside can’t go away

She needs someone to light her way

To a better start

Lost at sea she stands

With a seashell in her hands

Fingertips on quill

Eyes a misty hue

She flies between green and blue

Set with unquenched will
