Best Poem of Elia Michael

A False Friend

I really thought you a friend.
I thought you were spun by the gods.
A golden thread to help mend
My broken heart against all odds.

I really thought you a friend.
I see you glistening like gold,
And when I think you’ll extend
Your help, you are just so, so cold.

You are this thing they call hope.
You are supposed to be my friend
And help me to better cope
With my life right up to the end.

But I see you’re a false friend.
I realise this now I’m old.
You deceive me and pretend
To help me, but you’re a fool’s gold.

Read the full of A False Friend

Rest

Under the grassy mossy blanket - Rest
Tearing searing pain can never again
Touch your brief brightly burning brilliance
You are locked in Earth's sheltered embrace - Rest

Let a thousand white winter swirling snows
Let a thousand drops of spring-scented rain
Let a thousand summers of bright gold glows
And endless fall mists adorn your terrain

[Hata Bildir]
