Rebekah Gamble Poems
A Solitary Walk
I walked the shore one lonesome night; a shore so far from your embrace. I heard the waves lap at the shore and heard the voice of the sweetly singing sea.
A City Song
There’s a constant rumble To the pounding beat Of the people’s hearts As the rhythm of the street.
A Stone Named Want
There is a big black stone on my chest that keeps growing heavier. I thought I was free
I buried your heart one fine spring day and planted a sighing rose
It Rains In Me
It rains in my heart like it rains on my window. Cold glass being beaten down
Children are the wind, gone so soon, but pleasant and lovely, like the light of the moon.
I Gave Away The Sun
The road is narrow, the pavement cracked. I'm still enamored with it's mosaic of grey
I feel a calm panic, a sort of trapped fear, driving particular small town streets late at night.
I'm here again, but I am not afraid, not any more. This place
The Underside Of Eyelids
The snow drifts down, blue, white, glassy on the tree branches- The snow makes rhythm
What is beauty? Where is that strangling nymph that so many men
Dear Reader, I Am Not Insane
I recognize these marks, marks of that dark magic I knew so well, and have learned to fear. Suddenly the life around me is still.
It’s something like a fire, Consuming and burning. It’s something like a flower Blooming and wilting in its time.
She has strength and beauty. she is blue sapphire of clear glass falls.
Give me dust of life
and futures gone before
and faces of the dead
crying out from wood and stone.
Kiss the rain,
love the pain,
and give to gain.
