“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski


Black rose petals palling around me
Snow white fields of stars,
Twinkling brightly.

Ballads and chords sing sweetly to me
Hauntingly beautiful melodies,
Calling to me.

Ribbons of twilight and sashes of gold
Twirl around me in gyres,
Fading like mist.

Words unwritten but chanted in souls
Secret thoughts and whispers,
Passing on by.

Emotions unbidden and uninterrupted
Feelings are pure and true,
But intangible.

We like to pretend to ourselves and our friends
How normal and sound,
Are our minds.

Hold me and find me -- you'll find me in hues
But never understood
Be I.

You don't know me and I don't know you
With your words unwritten,
Unsaid.

If you knew what goes on inside of my head
I know that you'd say
I'm mad.

Who ever really understands one another
When words are so weak,
and dull.

Color me purple or fall like the wind
That winds over mountains
Under the sea.

Who knows what is real in this world at all
Just listen to that voice, unbidden,
Unwritten.

This is about our innermost thoughts and imagination, and how words can never express what we're really thinking. Our minds are colorful:)

Wow, thank you! I DID almost trash this because I thought nobody would get it and think I just put random words down, lol.

This is so good! I feel like it is something any writer would be able to connect with. I can honestly say that I have had some of the exact same thoughts. In fact, not too long ago I trashed a very similar attempted poem of mine. So it really makes me happy that you were able to get this down so well! You really seem to have a knack for writing. :)

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Totally :D
