Written by John Bentz and Hastywords
Your eyes tell a story of deep sadness
Yet there is a playful smile on your lips.
Drawing from the deep well of your soul
Seems an insurmountable feat
Gazing softly, I reach into you
Steady long breaths define your rhythm
Yet I can feel your heart beat contrary.
Drawing vivid boundaries around you
Takes all the strength I have
but I do it gladly, to protect you
Tears begin to stream as sadness surfaces
Your heart breaking again opening wounds
So deeply buried once thought forgotten
Now awakening as hell’s demons
loosed from their fiery prison.
Etching a river of stories into your cheek
I listen as each overflowing drop falls with gravity
My arms given in unwavering support
As my love for you grows ever deeper
we turn your tears into diamonds
And we know together
Your arms around me
Your Spirit comforting me
The diamonds that fall
Will fall again
Yet our love will loose the darkness
Come as it may, for we are ready

U’r collaborations are awesome, flows like water. Looking forward to the next poem. 🙂
Wow! This is one of my favorites from you so far, Hasty. Coming here is a nice break from reality. It’s like some funky little poetry lounge with beautiful artwork.
Absolutely lovely! I look forward to getting posts from you. And thank you so much for following my blog. I really appreciate it.
Nice… love the diamond tear thing…
Enjoy reading your choice of words here and thank you also for your presence earlier while visiting my blog.
This is a story beautifully “etched!”
Wow! Please ALWAYS speak your poetry. This was just amazing.
Oh I loved it. It is so much more personal and moving to hear the words in your own voice. It really does transcend some sort of boundary that written words just don’t cross. It’s like you’re here in my lounge room reading your poetry to me personally.
Great idea. Will you reblog them so we know which ones have sound clouds now?
Love it. You have a wonderful voice too.
Thank you everyone for your kind replies! I love writing with Hasty! I am glad you enjoy the “poetic fusion” of our style. 🙂
Brilliantly written and conveys so much feeling. 🍀
Bravo to you both!
Beautiful poem, and listening to your voice makes it even better. Great post!!
Now then, Sunset, the sound cloud isn’t working on this one but I LOVE it a lot. It’s gorgeous.
I redid it. Maybe because it was old. 🙂 it’s awful.
The poem’s incredible…
