Best Poem of Devon McElveen

The Woman In The Red Dress

The woman in the red dress
How I admire thee
How could one walk with such grace
And such beauty?
The woman in the red dress
Your comforting eyes
The beautiful color
Resembles the sunrise
The woman in the red dress
So young and youthful
A lie never leaves your lips
You are always truthful
The woman in the red dress
Your name, unknown
Your voice speaks with
The most beautiful of tone
The woman in the red dress
Why must you go?
Why don’t you stay
And allow our love to grow?

(May 2010)

Read the full of The Woman In The Red Dress

I Never Knew Him

I never knew him, only knew of him.
He was a great man, a man who knew many things.
Caring, Compassionate, Cool, Collected.
Lies. All of it lies.
I knew the truth…who he really was:
He was a coward, and ran before I saw this side.
He never Took Time To Tell Tales of his past,
He never showed his emotions,
He never told his thoughts,

[Hata Bildir]
