Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary.
~Kahlil Gibran

--

My son, my child

The first time I saw him lying in my shaking arms
I forgot all my past troubles at once
There was nothing bad in my life anymore
For I had him now to love and that was all I wanted

My precious son
My innocent child

No longer did I dwell on him having no father at all
It didn't matter that I was all he had
I knew from the moment I held him
That my love would be all he needed to grow

As I watched him grow up and learn new things
Tears would sometimes swell in my eyes
I knew that later he would leave me alone
He'll become the wonderful man I can already see

My beautiful son
My bright child

As he grew older he would ask me so much
All these questions that five year olds don't worry about
I could see him becoming the brightest boy at school
Surely he would shine the most in his class

It was hard sometimes though
Knowing I couldn't give him all the answers he thirst for
They were the only thing he wanted from me
And horrid thoughts that he'll be just like his absent father scared me

But what really bugged my mind at night
As I watched my little boy discovered the world
Was that he never asked about his father
Never wondered who he was the only one without one

My curious son
My pure child

Soon he was in middle school and so much older
How fast the time of his childhood flew by us
He began dating and very soon his questions changed
Still no mention of his missing second parent at all

My sparkling son
My only child

I loved my son so much; he was my only family
I didn't want to have another child or husband
My family practically disowned me after he left
No, my child was the single most important person in my life

So of course I was very upset and nervous
When he finally entered high school
College was only in reaching distant from him
And with his never ending brilliance it might be closer

My growing son
My sweet child

No longer did he ask those questions to me
Instead he took charge and went off searching for them
Like the man he both was and was becoming
I could no longer stop the tears in my tired eyes

Yet strangely my darling son has certain problems
Barely any friends at all and always a new girlfriend
Whenever I brought up the subject, he wouldn't care
"I'm doing fine, mother. Besides you're all I need."

But I talked some sense into his thick head
And watched him finally commit to one girl
Felt a mixture of joy and sorrow; curiosity too
That he still wasn't asking the one question that must be on his mind

My distant son
My lonely child

And when it came time to finally let him go
I did not try to hold him back from it
I knew that I was loosing my only kin and life
But I couldn't keep him from his future

When I heard news of his marriage
Finally I found a reason to smile again
He would not end up like his father after all
I rushed to celebrate and to go tell him

My perfect son
My loving child

Never thought that I would hear those words
Muttered at his wedding in which I had attended even though I was sick
Whispers of him cheating on his wife-to-be with some blonde
That news finally killed what was left of my heart

In shock I ran to him, determined to yell
But I sadly knew couldn't do that to him now
Nervous and doubtful, my son needed his caring mother
Instead I satisfied the question that was never asked

My confused son
My pitiful child

Lying on my deathbed not long after that for I had cancer
He told me he was so sorry he messed up like father
I just took his hand in mine, giving him a forgiving smile
Telling him I taught him right as I closed my eyes forever

My grow-up son
My naive child

A poet's autobiography is his poetry. Anything else is just a footnote.
~Yevgeny Yevtushenko

--

Look in this mirror
How did I go
From being a kid
To almost an adult
From entering kindergarten
To be leaving school soon
How did I change so fast
Where did the time go
In one second
18 years of my life has passed
I can remember everything
From learning to talk
To learning to move on
My body has grown
Changed from those memories
Everything I once was
Is no longer true
I never noticed the change
From child to adult
Slowly life molded me
Making me it's own
Look at these pictures
And tell me what happened
How did I change so much
In what seemed like a second

These are excellent Toko.
The first one is very sad but in a touching way.

Poetry heals the wounds inflicted by reason.
~Novalis

--

Dancing Our Curse

Candles float on still water
As I dance the night into submission
Closing our weak eyes now
Won’t see what we’re missing

Scattered melodies play
Across my soul, striking my heart
Yet I keep moving my damaged body
Letting the music tear me apart

From the distance of the shadows
Cries and helpless pleads are heard
But we can’t stop moving
Once we begin we are cursed

So the music keeps playing
The candles snuff out and fall
Crashing down under the water
Hurting us all

But it’s ok that we have to be hurt
We take our punishment like good children
No one can save us from our fate
No white knight will come running in

I just want to say I appreciate all the comments and I encourage you to keep making them. The reason I have not commented on them is because I do not want to distract you from the purpose of my post which is the poem and the quote at top, which I am trying to match as closely as I can to the feeling of the poem. I just wanted to let you know so you don't think I'm ignoring you.

All bad poetry springs from genuine feeling.
~Oscar Wilde

--

A small child
Sits at a window
Looks at the world outside
Quiet and peaceful
Is the scene she sees
Trapped inside the concrete walls
Counts the cars that race past
Stares at the people passing by
To whom she shall never belong to
She's sick and frail
A disease spreads through her body
Only seven and she might die
All she can manage
Is staring out a window
Out into a world she can't reach
All she wants now
Is to feel the sun
On her cold, pale skin
To see her friends smile
To laugh again as she runs
Barefoot through the grass
The taste of sugar on her tongue
Of sweet chocolate
The doctors say
She has a small chance
She may not survive the operation
Her mother cries
Her father weeps
Friends send their last goodbye
But the girl ignores the pain
She places her faith in God
To take care of her
To help her love ones smile if she can't
Asks God to give her her dream
Prays every night
It's time to go now
Asks God one last time
To help her get through
Before she goes under
She turns to the wall
A small girl
Looks out the window
Hoping for life

Poetry is a mirror which makes beautiful that which is distorted.
~Percy Shelley

That Boy

Is that the boy? The one who lies with me when I sleep?
Is that the boy? The one who's heart I will keep?
Is that the boy? The one who you saw kiss her?
I am not that girl. The one who was like his sister.

Is that the boy? The one who is always with me?
Is that the boy? The one who will truly see?
Is that the boy? The one who's by my side?
I am not that girl. The one who he'll comfort when she cries.

Is that the boy? The one who knew my secrets?
Is that the boy? The one who won't let me quit?
Is that the boy? The one who pushes me on?
I am not that girl. The one who lasts long.

Is that the boy? The one who gives me kisses?
Is that the boy? The one who I use for all my wishes?
Is that the boy? The one who I'll hug with a passion?
I am not that girl. The one who's in "fashion".

Is that the boy? The one who makes me giggle and blush?
Is that the boy? The one who's touch makes my mind spin and blood rush?
Is that the boy? The one who I'm too shy to talk to?
I am not that girl. The one who hides from you.

Is that the boy? The one who will make me laugh?
Is that the boy? The one who is my other half?
Is that the boy? The one who always can make me smile?
I am not that girl. The one who's happy with you, even for a little while.

Is that the boy? The one who so easily gets embarrassed?
Is that the boy? The one who's nervous about her meeting his parents?
Is that the boy? The one who never knows what to say?
I am not that girl. The one who can make him weak, yet he stays.

That is the boy. The one who stole my heart.
That is the boy. The one who I love, though it's not smart.
That is the boy. The one who I want to be with forever.
And I am that girl. The one who he told "Never."

The poetry of the earth is never dead.
~John Keats

Twilight

Twilight
A time in-between
Before morning’s first light
How I long to hold you
My dear Twilight

Sweet light
When the sky is neither
Lit nor darken
Where I long to belong
If only to be with you

The blue hour
Another name you have
But to me I will always know
The true name you have
Though I won’t say it

Twilight
Let us dance during this time
So few can see us anyways
Let us revel and be free
Until morning comes and the light
Tears you away from me

My darling Twilight

The poem is the point at which our strength gave out.
~Richard Rosen

Missing Something

A heart, a heart
What is a heart?
The thing that makes you alive
Makes you real
Pounding away in your chest
Proving your right to exist
A heart, a heart
Pumping in your chest
Filling you with blood
And emotions as well
Or is it?
Does a heart control emotions
Or is it all in their heads
But yet it makes them blush
Or it pounds when they get nervous
Oh heart, oh heart
You make humans what they are
A key part in their lives
Without you they are nothing
My heart, my heart
Where are you?
My chest is empty, my body is cold
I can not feel
Am I not alive?
Without you heart can I exist?
I appear human, but I am not
Heart….heart…
Why are you missing?
Making me nothing
I yearn for you so that I may
Finally realize why I am here
