Mark Gould Poems

'Spiteful words can hurt your feelings but Silence can break your heart'

Silence locks your tongue
What has my love done?

The sly man's perch
A filth ridden, ghostly plane.
A clenched fist and acid rain.
The play that everyone loves and hates

'In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer' -Albert Camus-

The blankets of winter's warmth

I am ready,
Ready to tear away,
Everything that I know,

At couple’s glow I smile and sow the fibers of my vanity;
the dam brakes free and rivers rage drowning fragile sanity.

Gloomy dim what lies within and seals gushing wounds again;


As I sit here
Clenching the clinging fibers
Around the hilt of my heavy soul-
Grip loosens


A morning dew's first glistening drop
Falls, timeless in eternity's ecstasy
Drops into my careless heart
Waves of light, seas of delight

'True love doesn't have a happy ending, because true love never ends. Letting go is one way of saying I love you' -Uknown-


Rejection rings, echos, and stings
Shame is adorned with humility's thorns
Supplanting my life as king

“Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength.”
- August Wilson -

Crisp slurps of heavy air
Floating flakes of sailing ice
Ghostly moon, blue twilight
Crunching, sinking steps


Insecurity, shame, and humiliation's the game
Arrogant, pompous, proud fool
YOUR eyes are your weapons
YOUR flattery, your tool


Secret's bleed the lies concede,
Heavy, burdened, broken dreams.
Shattered echos,
Past deceit;

Eyes, lips sell me lies,
A steeping price for a worthless prize;
A lump of flesh that breathes
Yet dies,


Flashes, fleeting pains from ages long ago,
Locked away, tucked into chambers down below.
Pain nicking, biting at the scars,
Tearing open what once was sown,

All I ever wanted
Was a smile;
Even a sliver of your love
Would have made the clouds rain gold and the whole world glow

Love is just a word,
A crushing veil,
Cloaking light, sealing
Strangling every breath;

The Best Poem Of Mark Gould

Iron Curtain

'Spiteful words can hurt your feelings but Silence can break your heart'

Silence locks your tongue
What has my love done?
Is the glow in your eyes
What have I done?

My trembling hands cannot bear
The words I cannot hear
Your words suggest hopefully
But your actions
