Raymond J Wright


From Every Pore


Prepare,
Steel yourself
Against
The onslaught,
The pain
Of betrayal

Heartache
Seeps from every pore
Twisting and tangling
Each and every nerve
Ripping through
Peaceful nights and sunlit mornings
Tearing through music and
laughter

Arrange each moment
Each step, each breath
To avoid memories and souvenirs
Of days gone by

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
