Best Poem of Matty Reynolds

Behind A Veil

Only a man who shackles
Torment to one shoulder
And sorrow to the opposite
With a sad meloncholy loving
Heart the balancing point,
Could understand the love
Cast upon my soul.
That this fractured imperfect
Love is polished and pure
To a man whose heart has
Been filled, yet he is alone.
Only a man who dons a suit
Adorned with a clip on tie
To visit a lost love and snip
Crabgrass from around her stone
Can see the loss behind his eyes.
The only joy he has heard
Were crying babies he held
And the beautiful voice
Of the one that said ...

Nectarine Blossoms

It's snowing on my nectarine blossoms,
They are falling dead- no fruit this year.

Is it an omen?

Sad to think of you sleeping on the couch this past year,
Me alone in a warm bed wishing you would return.

With spring comes change.
