Sun-rays (a new start)

by - Mr. Darcy   Mar 2, 2008

- sun-rays -

In my dreams I hold your hand,
I feel your rhythm and understand.
I know what lies behind blue eyes,
a pureness that can make me cry.

Feeling humble before your faith,
an age before us gone to waste.
My memory drifts back to a time,
where you and I had younger minds.

Before corruption took its hold
and meekly, we did as we were told.
In little boxes we were trussed and kept
and through the dark our freedom wept.

Sitting stifled and without words,
No voice to speak, our dreams unheard.
Confidence scolded and so our limbs,
to smile, to laugh a godly sin.

The bells still ring within my head
And chanting too, while on my bed.
Over me they stoop and point their fingers
and shout and yell, my pain still lingers.

Sweating nervously awaiting fate,
To loathe, despise, to bloody hate.
Love and hate, a contradiction?
Without each other there's no conviction.

Our special years robbed by their mistakes
and our fullest potential for goodness sake.
I wish our heads were clear of grief,
Our pain excised - what a relief!

We have a chance to spread our wings,
to see the glory of many things.
Take my hand and trust in me,
Lets shake our demons and you will see.

Allow your vision to become clear,
Walk with me and merge our tears.
Our tears release the evil stored away
So we can breathe and feel sun-rays

Enjoy the warmth of a new start.
Our future destined to always last.

    Your words flow so well, as if there was no effort on your part to write them, that you just thought them and they could not wait to get to the page. I know this does not make sense but I don't know anyother way to say what I mean, effortless would sum it up. If this is any indication of how you write, I am in for a treat when I read your other poetry. Thank you for such beautiful words.
