Poetry - Part Five

Posted by Suzy Athey on Friday, February 18, 2011, In : Poetry 
Last lot up to date.........

Tranquillity

Riding on horseback, the wind in my hair
Looking for wildlife that I know is there
Hearing the sound of the birds merry song
This is truly where I belong

Patting the neck of the stallion I ride
The soft velvet touch, of his silky hide
Feeling the sun beat down upon me
This is truly where I want to be

The rhythmic patter of hooves on the ground
The gentle swaying of trees all around
Stopping to see the scene; I’m in awe
This is truly what I love, for sure

Tying m...

Judgement

Everyone is judging me because I’ve gone on strike
From children to adults and the Government alike
I took the role as fireman, it was my childhood dream
But it isn’t really glamorous, although this is how it’s seen
I want to be saving lives, not on a picket line
Waving all the banners and heavy wooden signs

Moving On

I think of her with you holding you tight
She is the one who is kissing you goodnight
You may say its over, but still you haven’t parted

I can’t cope any longer without having you near
Only seeing you a few times a year
At first it was easy I have to confess
I thought I could handle being your second best
I’ve made a decision about me and you
Tell her its over or honey we’re through
I know you’ll be shocked and beg me to stay
But I’...

Poetry - Part Two

Another batch of my poetry, again written mainly in 2002

Cruel World

Picture a mother waving goodbye to her son
Will she see him again when it is all done

His very last smile she keeps locked in her heart
She won’t think the worst or it will tear her apart

He walked into the distance in clothes all of green
She remembered fondly how his buttons did gleam

She used to sit and worry as any mother would
He pledged to do his duty the best way that he could

At first he wrote her every day from road, air or...

Poetry - Part One

I thought I would post my poetry on here for you to have a read of, mostly written in 2002.  Let me know what you think, what you like best and which doesn't do it for you:

If I (Version One)

If I told you I wanted you
Would you still walk away
Or gather me in your arms
And tell me you’d stay

If I told you I needed you
Would you listen and hear
And not walk away with
Your heart filled with fear

If I told you I dreamed of you
Would you look in my eye
Stand beside me with
Your head held high

If I to...
