Scattered Sunset


You think

there is no reason

for another day


You feel alone

and left for want,

not knowing love


You turn

and see

the world changing,

but you're still the same


Beyond a windowpane

full of yearning

and understanding

of the dawn


The sun rises

And your day begins


As the seclusion

of the night

says farewell to all lost

in the veil of a dream


Quelling an insurrection

from within,


beautiful blue skies


'til the day folds

into a scattered sunset


into a silhouette

of yesterday


O dear friend,

you'll see

that life is more

than an evening guise


If you'd only believe

in the morning ransom

of the cross


Set your troubles

into the light


Don’t let your sorrow

rise to be misled, 

or mourning may follow you

            'in the morning ransom
            of the cross'
            'or mourning may follow you'
            but for these to lines
            you'd have penned one of the most
            genuinely uplifting, yet subtly vulnerable
            poems, I have ever read here on mps
            (what a pity: for me, entirely...)
            still, I thank you! dear poet
            for choosing to share
            your wonderful talent,
            undisputedly: A great write!

            • Gino

              Thank you so much L. B. Mek for that wonderful description of these 2 lines. It means a lot to me that I can touch others in this way as you've described.
