Forever Free - Poem by Jemarie Ragudo

We can bind the wind
With cords of fantasy
And keep it still
For a moment
But never can man
In his shrewdness
Imprison love within the
Fragile walls of his heart
For the eyes will reveal
What the lips
Are loathed to tell

    Truly a great poem.

    For all the social control that we exert, our nature escapes, and we ARE our nature.

    Marvelous poem. I had to read it several times to appreciate all of what it said and enjoy the weaving of the message. It seems like we are forever free in the sense that we will and can find a way. (Report) Reply

    Imprison love within the
    Fragile walls of his heart
    For the eyes will reveal
    What the lips
    Are loathed to tell
    i loved the words, beaytiful way for telling the strong emotions.

    Short, clear, assured-this poem is very nicely done indeed! The graceful, natural flow that Patrick McF noted, combined with the tight, taut economical use of words and images that impressed James McL, make 'Forever Free' one of your best and move it into the genuinely memorable realm. Talk about good things in little packages! I'm not surprised by the numerous 10s and the many positive reader comments, to which I'm adding my own enthusiastic thumbs-up. Bravo, Jemarie! (P.S. I think you meant to write 'are loathe' or 'have loathed (?) to agree with lips plural, rather than 'is loathed' in the last line. Or am I missing something there?)

    Indeed love can't be tied down. Instead,
    it needs to be free in order that it can
    give inspiration and hope...
