Sudden light

hits the retina of drowsy eyes,

pushing against the darkness of our hearts,

invading blind alleys and hidden bends,

lost in the echoes of useless words

screamed in silence.

Suspended on the wires of time,

between the reflections on this muddy water

of sickening days and scattered hopes,

the thin images of our souls

drenched with rain and tears

compressed by memories.

Little waves of sculptured smiles,

those of a pale, premature moon

looking at us

while we walk…

And yet we are still!


like shadows sticking up to the heart.

We wander through wild paths

of grudges and regrets

dancing in a virtual circle

of tired words

leading us to the border

with dream and illusion…

Our dream!

Where we once lost ourselves

following photometric lights

on arches bright of colors

and soft of clouds.

Standing still now, we look at that water

ruffled by wind and shadows

without frames without colors,

as we are now:


only reflections!

    1. Thank You So much for reading my words… And I have to disagree on something: what comes out from our heart and soul is not meant to be better or worse, I love the rhythm in your poems, I love the way you and only you, as the writer who experienced those emotions, are able to make me feel every single one of them in a way that makes them mine too, universal feeling of sharing words and situations without limits of space or time… You are wonderfully unique and not comparable! Much love and gratitude for your beautiful comments!!!

  3. dear laura,

    maybe this is what we see when we are so pre-occupied with ourselves-the problems at the moment which are affecting us. your poem has demonstrated the danger and the pitfall of making oneself in a cage of hate, pain and suffering. i have seen the value of freedom and going past behind our own selves to see our true light. the real beings that we once were. great poem here.

  4. elegant word flow.
    love your style…

    you have got talent here, welcome to attend poets rally week 35, where you share your poetry and make new poetic friends…poetry awards are assigned upon completion.

    let me know when you are ready.
    Merry Christmas…
    keep writing…

  5. This is the poetry I aspire to write ~ simply beautiful and flowing. ‘We wander through wild paths of grudges and regrets’ ~ oh yes, through those pathless woods… : ))
