Poetry

Poetry
Taken from the pages
Of anarchy
Full in the hearts of subtlety
Showing no malice is
Poetry.

Poetry
Why have you come
To be my destiny?
Nothing matters but
The throes of the heart in
Poetry.

Poetry
Anger, passion, full
Of the vacant sound coming
From that original sin
Even then
Blessed is the heart
That changes history with
Poetry.

Poetry
No one can know what
Could have been
My heart, my love and
All life has been and now
Come be within
Poetry.

We Are In A Deep Freeze

January 5, 2018

Deep Freeze ~ Photo by Patrice

We are in a deep freeze
A deep, deep freeze
Cold does not cover what it is
Breath taken away
Frozen in a frigid atmosphere.

Those you hold dear
Should not be out or near
Frozen
Smother instead with warm
Blankets of unfrozen love.

Polar bear cold
Things are froze
No one knows how deep
Or long it will go
Don’t know.

Please no longer than a sleep
Let it creep back up
Let us experience heat
No more deep, deep freeze
Oh please some heat!

Saw My Heart Filled

December 22, 2017

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Saw my heart filled
With love
And yours with such cold
Not caring bold disdain.

I wasn’t told
You’d soon depart
Or how I’d be shattered
Blown apart.

It seems it doesn’t matter
For that’s what you expect
When the heart
Is torn, ripped away.

Not sure why
I didn’t cry or follow
You out the door.

Instead I closed my heart
Denying for a time
That I wished
You would have stayed.

But now I wait and hope
And pray
That you’ll come back
Someday, someday.

We Sat Silently Together

Chairs in Arbua ~ photo by PatriceWe sat silently together
No one saying anything
Silently wishing
We could bridge the chasm
That that silence brings.

We Are Joyous

Watching Deer Watching ~ photo by Patrice

We are joyous
Moving along, forward
Into a distant future.

Hesitate, reach down
Look around, see
All the wonders
Growing
Living by your side.

Know
You’re not alone
Nor ever going to be.

For intertwined
In your soul, mine
And all that
Has ever been.

Never Understood

December 1, 2017

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Never understood
How you could walk away
Never turning round
To even say
A kind goodbye

Never understood.

Can’t figure out why
Why it made me cry
Wish with all my heart
I too
Could leave and maybe die

Never understood.

Not now in that awful moment
Moved on and found
The world a lovely place
Full of treasures, beauty, grace
Making all that heartache
Pass away

That, I understand.

But in brief moments
Of some days
I think of you
And still

Can never really understand.

Maybe Behind In Time

November 24, 2017

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Maybe behind in time
Maybe not ahead of the crowd
But oh, joy is bestowed
Upon this road I’m travelling on.

Come be with me
Feel the passion in a love
Of beauty all around.

Go back in time
Feel the love, the joy
That does surround.
~ Patrice
