Emotional Poetry: White Lilies

Emotional Poetry: White Lilies

by Liam

As pain heals, in time it will diminish

Give it time to melt

In slow wet drops from the heart

Moistening the ground upon which I stand

Preparing my dry barren anguish

To again recognize

Receive new seeds of hope

Sorrow, like sadness too

Will evaporate in the course of given time

Tiny molecules of memory will be blown away

Into the rolling of the days and nights to come

Be done with it, for the wheel of life

Rolls faster than the thoughts which create it

Rolls slower when memories which bind it

Burden it with the hard freeze of pain

I’m jammed, crammed, captured and cold

Caught in time, rolling with the punches

Limited with my abilities

Still it’s all in motion

Motion to movement to my own slow gain

Recovering from my inability to defrost

Still in slow wet melt

I see again

Without the canvas of my defeat shoved hard into my face

It’s in the distance now

There, far off on the verge of my recognition

White lilies grow

Calling quietly, whispering that it’s over

Healing, to plant, grow and recover the warmth again

Hold the peace again

Feel the love

Leave the Pain.
