Orlando Belo Poems
A Tremor In My Heart
I was talking with some friends, when you appeared out of the blue. My voice failed in mid-sentence, at the first sight of you.
Don’t Judge A Book By Its Cover
Don’t judge me by the way I look and by the way I have my hair. Don’t judge me by my dirty shoes and by the way my jeans have tears.
The Cobra And The Mongoose
"Tell me mongoose why are you trying to steal my eggs? " "Well, I've not eaten for weeks and I'm dying on my legs." "Don't you realise that very soon these eggs will be my children? " "Yes, but you have so many, you won't miss three of them."
Sitting And Thinking
Here I am sitting in the dark again thinking about the past and what I’ve done. The countless failures and the few successes, the personal battles, lost, and won.
Please don’t write me a letter filled with words of love. I don’t want your paper kisses with ‘I miss you’ written above.
Not A Waltz But A Tango
I looked with eyes of wonderment and she saw what I was at. I looked away immediately, but knew I'd been caught in the act.
Doom And Gloom
The monthly pages of the calendar are being turned with trepidation. The days are shorter since the trouble began and there's no way to end this situation.
We once found love where there was none, and became as one beneath the moon and sun. When we were apart we ached with pain until we touched each other again.
An Angel On My Shoulder
An angel on my shoulder asked me to help my fellow man. I asked how could I help them and he said by doing what I can.
A Thank You Prayer
Dear Lord I wish to say thank you for bringing me through this day and thank you for making it possible for me to pray. And thank you for giving me the strength to live each day through, and thank you for being there so I can thank you.
Yesterday on the street I passed a stranger, but the stranger I passed was me. At first, I didn't believe it was possible, but it was; how could that be?
At A Loss For Words
A serious amount of time had passed since a verse had come to mind, a mental blockage is all I had, and not a word seemed to rhyme. No words of wisdom or anecdotes, the supply had completely gone, I was starved of a thought or idea, not a inkling, nothing, none.
The Sea And You
I very often sit watching the ebb and flow of the sea and it always gets me thinking about you and me. The way you walk out and leave me for other men, and whenever it suits you, you come back again.
The Hedgehog And The Fox
As dusk fell, a fox walked down the street searching for any scraps to eat. Across gardens, and down people’s drives, looking for anything dead or alive.
He opened his eyes as he lay in the dark.
His mind and body was filled with light.
He remembered well the days before today.
His pain and wounds were now out of sight.
He now understood why he had to give his life,
and apologised to his Father upon high.
Today would be the greatest day known to man,
and the world would understand why.
