The Imaginary Friend.

Something was different today. You were here

But you were gone. Where?

I don't know the person you are now.

You used to be so happy and light,

Now the dark clouds have moved in to stay.

Was it me? Did I fail you? I used to be your clown,

but now you frown more then you smile.

I'm sorry to go now. But the little girl I once cared for is gone,

So I too take my leave. I would rather fade and be forgotten,

then to look at you and remember what once was.

The Artist

A gentle scrape of blade on bone, a tender kiss of pain/

Whispers through your raven hair, assurances of things to be/

An audience of shadows attend us here, my steady hands to see/

The shimmer glint of the silver slit, the cold shine of my life/

To paint in lines of red, to make them join and meat/

Ts my art and my joy to paint apart, beauty to be carved/

Why is my canvas dead?

Aw, sweetie :O

That is so...so beautiful but also, so darn sad. Brave too, sharing poetry, as it tends to be so much more personal.

Thanks for sharing this part of you with us <3

I just want to hug you. No words, just a gentle hug because I want to.

Beautiful words from a beautiful person.

This was very powerful and very moving writing WV, terrific stuff. My favorite poem of recent memory by far. Your a jack of trades aren't you? Poet, writer and artist extraordinaire eh? Heh heh.

Thank you for sharing.

@wildvine: Hey WV, just wanted you to know that I read this. (I never know what to say about free form non rhyming poetry though, because each one is like comparing apples and oranges)

P.S. I read the first one a long time ago, but forgot to mention that it was added to my FF Long Box - Authors. :)

@cbishop:

Thank you. I'm still very new/unpractised in poetry. I was tempted to go with rhyme, it just seemed too easy.

@wildvine: If you can make things rhyme, it is easy...until you've been doing it for awhile. Then it's hard to to it without feeling like you're rhyming the same words over and over again. ;)
