Heather Marie Mortimer Poems
Lay low, my heart, for just awhile And rest in sorrow's healing grip For bitter pain brings bitter smile To reanimate my frozen lip
Love And Torment
And did you love me on those nights? When heaven opened to pour our desires And inspired these tender and wrathful fights Not a cloud to cover what He may conspire.
In daydreams and nightmares, I may have what I seek But in sunbeams my senses and actions grow weak One step for another, yet far off is my goal And the end lies inside me, but only when I am whole.
We pull petals from a daisy Just to read our fortune And push lovers to their limits Just to know our portion.
Calypso And Cupid
Calypso and Cupid seem at a war Which dearer vice has conquered me? Is it my passions' wrath burst from my core, Or the strike which was not meant to be?
It isn't the end of the world, I know But in a moments time I loved you so. And now I'm defeated, I am prisoner here Never so cold was my heart nor so hot were my tears.
Should'Ve, Would'Ve, Could'Ve...
There are many things I should have done quite differently, I would have... I could have...
Shall I hold my tongue to be a wanton muse? Give leave my heart to self-abuse? In dreams and nightmares there is one vision Which taunts my thoughts with sharp precision.
To A Soldier Ii
And so my well-wishing thoughts go out to you: That fate be kind and love be true. That in your darkest moments you remember me And all the light and love which my own eyes see.
Eternity seems like torture now With you gone and silent every day Only glimpses of shining thoughts remain, And those weep heavy when left to stray.
To A Soldier
When weary journey does not travel to rest And heaviness of heart exhausts your limbs In competition with Death may your mortality show best That in your power you live by simple whims.
Pain is what spurs us to seek joy. Joy is what spurs us to seek pain. To see either as lasting is simple misery. Peace comes from walking forward anyway.
Secrets In The Dark
Now come, brilliant sunset Bring my fiery bliss Travel quick to my senses And quench me in kiss.
Just Another Fight
My mind is as heavy as my eyelids tonight Unanswered thoughts, unfinished fights. So much pain towering over me Crushing me down while setting me free.
Love In Circles
Your lips against mine touched me so softly
And still it set every part of me on fire.
To set my soul free was in turn so costly
You lifted me up to the Heavens to lay me down on a pyre.
What a tragic end from the very beginning,
How well we avoid the truth we are seeking.
What felt so pure was truthfully sinning
Buried within the passionate words you were speaking.
