An Unrequited Love, by Danny Kemp

An Unrequited Love

Through an icy mist my eyes did gaze

Upon a grassy field set white ablaze.

Lonely freezing tears it  had cried

Whilst begging for a winter bride.

No love it shared, nor hand to hold

To save itself from its bitter cold.

Chilled now lies its love entrapped

Which only warmth can ever unwrap.

An Unscarred Past

784995a4482546b60fef95d6da00fec7

I can remember riding a bike downhill, trying to wear out a pair of shoes my parents had bought me that I didn’t like.

I can remember the day my heart raced, after I’d told a lie and been found out. The truth must always be faced.

I can remember many, many things, but yet, but yet………There are more I forget!

I can remember the first dead body I found. I was shocked, but only for seconds did it hold me spellbound.

I can remember the first time my heart was broken. I remember reading Don Juan by Lord Byron.

I can remember many, many things, but yet, but yet………There are more I forget!

I remember comforting my mother on the day that my father died, and a bus driving passed. Life gone, life living; such a contrast.

I remember the hospital doctor who left my mother naked and uncovered on her death-bed. I held him round the throat and punched him. Nothing was said.

I can remember many, many things, but yet, but yet………There are more I forget!

To remember is hard. To forget; is to have a past unscarred.

A Scoffing Rhyme

db8613480958ffb8ad658d86f3043dc5

A dog chasing a bird is something so quite absurd, that is needs no remarking on.
A news reporter reporting the news without adding their own views, is something I’d like to escape from.

The police recording crime takes such a lot of time, that the rules are changed to save effort instead.
Politicians that say they’ll save us all is such a story tall, that it won’t happen even after I’m dead! Boom Boom

Leave Me Here For Eternity.

94c7f019ab2d86a3e88d4b3e49eecc8c-1

Fields painted in swaying green
A rippling brook darts through the scene.
Peace, tranquility, a riverside bench
A thirst for Heaven on which to quench.

Fly me high, let me soar,
Let me gaze, let me adore,
Let me bathe in what I see!
Leave me here for eternity.

A tree crowned hill in moonlit sky.
Silvery shards magnify
Its beauty, as I stare
Mouthing silently my unfeigned prayer.

Fly me high, let me soar,
Let me gaze, let me adore,
Let me bathe in what I see!
Leave me here for eternity.

A Window View.

f0ca5bd99734f5cfd4af344f339d36f2

The Window View
Misty dew on velvet lay,
Crows arriving at the opening day.
A babbling brook in distance flow,
The sun is shy, hiding from show.
Silence greets the morning stroll,
Across an empty field without a soul.
