Biography of Bill Cantrell
I am not a poet and don't claim to be but I love in my own way putting thought, emotions and reason into words. Been attempting to write since 2012 and I enjoy it.
Bill Cantrell Poems
The Treasure Of A Letter
Words carefully written, Will they stand the test of time? The secret is emotion, Not in the way words rhyme.
Emotions must be gathered and clothed with words that fit. Then joining hands together, on paper they now sit.
Afraid Of The Dark
Bedtime should be a time for sweet dreams A story a prayer and a kiss goodnight Yet, things in the dark aren’t what they seen But when off goes the lights, the bedbugs will bite
Poetic Voyeur -new-
How long do I search? Where do I go from here? The earth has become small The heavens, no more room
Why are you angry, crimson moon? You look so out of place We finally see your darker side and yet, you never turned your face
Davy Jones Locker
Love and tears, life and death Emotions on the oceans breath Sailors rest upon its sandy floor
The Vioce Of Flowers
Have you heard the voice of flowers? Oh, they speak in many ways Some will whisper, some will shout, Listen what they say
The Not So Cold Wind Blows
In the spring I arrive as a gentle breeze With the summer I have my moods In the autumn I am stripping naked the trees With the winter my heart is an empty room
All along the rainbows edge, Angels are placing their wings to dry Having softened the face of the killing storm, To leave her a clear blue sky
A Poets Nightmare
All my poems are falling down And all the poets are dead Just before I hit the ground, I land upon my bed
Tides Of Love
You need not burn old bridges to keep me by your side. The sun anoints your smile and the moon dwells in your eyes
Roll Of The Dice
Tides Of Love
You need not burn old bridges
to keep me by your side.
The sun anoints your smile
and the moon dwells in your eyes
No road has ever taken me
to this place where all my dreams come true
No pain could ever cut so deep,
to think our love was through.
