autumn fires

i'm lost and blown away
carry me home
scar tissues, purple and blue
mama's kisses don't make them good now.
battle weary beliefs
how long will i carry their torn banner
autumn fires
make me think about you
and i don't even know your name.

Longing for that one person. Universal in heart, description and even pain. Excellent poem!!

A torn leaf, or maybe a heart, or maybe even a letter.

We lost you last November. Autumn does not have to be the foreshadowing of an ominous winter. It could be a reminder to rest and savor the warmth within.

soulful melody!
as fresh as ever :)
which signifies:
kisses do work,
beliefs though weary,
still,
have enough strength
to help you
with your search for your HOME.

if wishes were true and horses could fly

but then

the only good things we get are the one's we wish for, the rest are all unwanted good, bad or ugly, unwanted all the same

Mama's kisses.

Papa's hand.

A sky you remember

But can't understand.

Friends who are shadows.

And were you to blame?

He promised you so much -

But held back his name.

Lovely poem so sad and plaintive like the end of the summer

Hazel Dream said...

A fallen tear
searching for cheek to rest ??
or torn emotion searching for tears??
is that a fallen leaf in spring
crying at her destiny ??
