Continual Loss - Poem by Daniel Richards

I’ve dreamnt of you a thousand times,
Flown with you through blue and starry skies
Landing upon a mountain high, only to awake
From my dreaming questioning why

The darkest clouds im hiding in
Are lost along with me, within my sinful skin.
Blueprint misery hidden within scar strained tissue
As it breaks the bridges I need with which to reach you

Everyone’s ringside watching me fight this woe
Round by round and blow by blow
The final round is coming but I see no end, no rainbow
Im on my knees and finally around me the crowd it screams

Compare me if you will, to a circus top or Ferris wheel
Ignore it yes and go by detail,
Read between the lines and page,
You’ll find the lies muddied stage,

It keeps the pain alive and my heart encaged

I saw you here and I loved you there
Where the birds sing and with petals in your hair
Your blue eyes are diamonds with a loving stare
Exploded my heart with love care

Now I sit alone and not at ease
No-one beside me except the breeze
Which whispers your name and release’s my tears.

Wishing for one more moment with you
To become lost within your eyes so blue
