Your Eyes Are Red-Theme Thursday & Poets Rally Post

You take a hard road,

I sip the tears your eyes try to hold.

You drink a bottle of wine,

I finish what is undone.

Your eyes are red,

I help you go to bed.

Through evening’s rest, you dream,

I try to silent you when you scream.

You wake up often,

You cry;

I listen,

I stay nearby.

When you eventually have the clue

of what you shall do,

I leave

With a sign of relief.

  1. a beautiful verse…i was intially thinking of consoling an indecisive lover but that too would play with the muse and how she is so fleeting at times. thank you as well for the nomination.

    my nominee is leslie over at moondust…

    1. Brian:

      thank you for the encouragement,

  3. Hi Jingle :)! I can relate to what you wrote and I think it is expressed in a simple, yet sophisticated way. Your choice of words, the poem’s form. I really enjoyed it.

  4. Jingle, this is awesome. I love the way you so creatively and richly portrayed it. Love it. I just posted and am going to start visitng fresh poets first then on to the others!

  6. Ok, Jingle, I’ve visited and commented on twelve fresh poets, and will hit more fresh and the others tomorrow.

    1. Nanc:

      you cool friend,
      thank you for the positive take…

      JK Rowling writes Harry Potter, does Harry have anything to do with JK herself?

      I am curious about people who takes others’ work too personally…

      thank you for the kindness!

  7. I was worried for awhile, you ok?
    This is just about writer’s block?
    you take care of yourself, Jingle.
    you are spending too long hours on the computer?

  9. Oh my! You express this so well. The idea of babysitting, of hovering over myself, until the words choose me again — I thought that was just me ๐Ÿ™‚ A relief indeed!
