Uriah Hamilton

World-Weary Girl - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

World-weary girl,
Tears form in your eyes,
Confusion swirls
Like a virulent tornado
Around your heart,
Rending the fragile fabric of your soul,
I fear, irreparably apart.

I want to kiss your delicate face,
Gently touch your hair,
Reassure you I’m on your side,
Reassure you that I care.

World-weary girl,
Invite me into your life,
Help me understand your story
If we have to talk unceasingly
Through the dark and lonely night.

I believe in your struggle,
And I’ll send sympathetic prayers into the universe
Until I know the dawn of a new embrace
Has brought you into the arms
Of an indisputable and transforming love.

    Truly beautiful.

    I've read 153 of your 155 poems, and I find myself feeling sad that the 'Uriah Hamilton Experience' is about to end. I've thoroughly enjoyed reading your work, and I can honestly say that it's touched me in a way that none other ever has. Your haunting words will remain with me for weeks to come.

    Thank you for that.
