Yesterday's Truth - Poem by Julie Tharlove

Passing hours in the dark
The soul whispers to the mind
Today then torn apart
By dreams that dawn cannot find

From the shadows of my room
I walk through the desert of before
Blistering heat melts the lies
Tracing scrolls through fiery skies

Reading through the years
Truth burns hot in my chest
I beg through the tears
Return me to what I know best

Welling up beneath my feet
The floods begin to roll
Unclothed and alone
I swim the cool waters of my soul

Sinking in to my own deep
Falling away from the sun
Slowly, I awake from sleep
Yesterday’s truths undone

    very well written, Julie. everything about this - the rhyme pattern & the verse layout. i like how you told a story in a desert through his/her emotions. it kept the reader's up into the last closing line where you wrap in the title. (Report) Reply
