Land of Eternity

Pitter pattering across my heart
It creeps through the cracks.
Chiseled out by seas of guilt
It refuses to quit.

Lost souls come
To this land of eternity.
Drowned voices of nothing
But a dying wave.

Dropping one 
By one
The tears will fall
In sandy hands and broken feet.
Smiles rare and far too sweet.

Blink open those shy blues.
Tell me what you see.
Turmoil and strength;
Frightened, but bold.
It's all meant to be
In you,
Not in me;
In this lost land of eternity.

By the way, I really enjoyed reading your poem "A Message " I added it to my favorites list!

That was terrific! You're word-choice was fantastic as well. The common theme of water really made the poem seem very unified. It was a very interesting poem and got me wondering, especially about this "land of eternity". It seemed a bit vague in the poem (which isn't necessairly a bad thing, unless you want it to be an absolute thing) and so it could be interperted in many ways based on the reader's own experiences (again, this isn't a bad thing unless there is some sp...

Thanks, I never intend for it to be so vague but it always is. I guess it's just my writting style. I really enjoyed your running poem, by the way. My favorite part was the last few lines!

Thanks. I tried to use words revolving around water and the ocean.
