James Darwin Smith II

(10/6/74 / San Diego, CA)

Warming myself beyond this day and out

Its so hard to open up
So afraid to be hurt again
The pain so unbearable
Goes on and on and on
Numbing seems to be the only answer
But feelings they cannot die, alone

Trying to make so much sense
Dark and dreary all around
Rain and wind to a traverse ground
As nature cries in vain

Fighting with all that I have
Seeing light so far away
Must travel this heart, soul and mind
Within the visions of a soothing sunlit day

I see beauty over the horizon
Upon this third eye of passionate bliss
A chocolate peek of warming prophecies
My heart begins to melt

And through this all
Doubt cannot be seen
Never wanting to succumb to nightmare’s disease
As these dreams keep telling me
To trust them all at once and even beyond all of that

No idea what the future will unfold
But I have to believe the best has yet to be foretold
As I can trust with no worries or regrets
As these walls all fall down
Into a distant amnestic residuals of yesterday’s lessons
Only taking the knowledge ahead from this very day out
All shall come to fruition futile in happiness
An epiphany that shall grow into a vast reality

And what is that vast reality?

To trust again
Making all of everything better
As true beauty teaches me
How to make the gray skies blue again

I envision the sun as it shines
Beaming such warmth trust
Safely in paradise
Letting this heart express itself fully again

My road to myself and beyond
And into beauty is still unpaved
But with faith that shall soon change
I shall be on my own loving way

To trust again
That is a day I shall cherish away and away
To the light that shines eternally
To the light that now shines within
A fire I must keep burning
As I believe in all forms of love, Again

Though there may be struggles
Here is too a brand new day!
As tomorrow shall destroy yesterday
And the future smiles with great approval

The future shall be
My everything, my all the way
Yes, there is much before that yesterday and today

To inspiration to my bright muse from this day out

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
