My Shadow Will Dance

    This reflection, feverish with fear.
    A shattered faith shown through a broken mirror,
    The candle dances, casting shadows on the wall,
    The silhouette of obscurity, lost without cause.

    My shadow will dance, a faint whisper in the night,
    The truth burns like a furnace, a glimmering light.
    The smoke will rise, and the tables will turn,
    When everything’s cleared it will all have been done.

    Faith worn thin, her soul becomes weak,
    Hope for the shadow begins to look bleak.
    It dances more faintly, as the candle decays,
    To rise through the ashes of all life’s disarray.

    The candle is dead; smoke will rise to the stars,
    The shadow once living, no longer resides
    Within this hole, of perpetual defeat,
    All of life seems a hopeless disease.

    She hoped and she dreamed but she never perceived,
    Not everything she believed would be achieved.
    Our shadows will fall into darkness with time,
    We lose ourselves in life’s ongoing rhyme.

    “Put your faith in me, I’ll guide you home.”
    She hears it throughout, a monotonous tone.
    Belief is a weakness, and faith a disease,
    With one or them both the mind cannot see.

    My shadow will dance, a faint whisper in the night,
    Your faith will decay, into your mind peeks a light.
    My shadow will dance, with yours in the sun,
    All that I am, would not... could not be undone.

    Taste The Rainbow

    The water fall washes down
    Off the mountain side
    In it's sheen fields of green
    And heavy mist arrised stark across
    The rainbow shine
    Could it be
    Taste the rainbow
    All those thoughts inside my mind
    Where things I played like the castaway
    Were sounds my music had not played
    In such a way
    The rainbow could not shine
    Could it be
    Taste the rainbow
    The water fall washes down
    Off the mountain side
    In it's sheen fields of green
    And heavy mist arrised stark across
    The rainbow shine
    Maybe I was only dreaming for a moment
    Two or then
    But I could swear I was believing in that time
    When things I played like the castaway
    Were sounds my music had not played
    In such a way
    All the rainbow was a smile and stayed a while
    And could it be
    Taste the rainbow
    The whispers of our dreams
    Just take a little while

    ~* I really liked the two poems you posted. This one throws me off a bit when it rhymes and then doesn't. My favorite ones were the fifth and sixth. I hope you will be posting to others work as well as posting your own. Love and Light*~

    Don't bother gdhmomchild. That guy's outside life appears to be caving in at the moment and he doesn't know how to handle it. So he does the only thing a frustrated, cornered young man would do and takes it out on some strangers in a poetry forum. If you ignore him, eventually his thread would pass to the back, he'll get bored and find another venue for his anger. I actually feel sorry for him, but this is a learning process that is sometimes sprung on humankind. Anyway, nice to read some good quality prolific poetry from peace child. Hope you can keep it up:)
