Lever up the Sky

User Rating: 4 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Inactive

The sun rounds up the dark

And levers up the morning sky

Soft sounds penetrate the ground

Clarity marries and then you find

Priceless paintings on transparent eyes


All you pen heads gather round

Drop the garments you have found

Show the world what you’ll wear

Bare yourself among your peers

Digging down into that underground


Fame is the same as failure

Neither protects from danger

Nor lifts you up out of yourself

Only you can raise that shelf

Words the only true savior


On this ball of fire we fly

Shall we not light up the sky?

Melt the dark and shoot the light

Push the air with our flight

You will be you, and I’ll be I


Right or wrong write the pain

Weak or strong you will strain

Blood on silk or white on stain

These are things you must change


Human truth with pen in hand

Rewrite the fate of coming man


Poetry our longest song

Singing to ourselves alone

It’s up to us to paint the rose

Until the lid of life is closed

WOW! I was mesmerized. Really flowing - both in words and in a logical pattern of thought progression. An emotional journey from transcendence to sadness, but exuding nobility throughout.

The ink you spill on me tatoo's me with such honor. Thank you ladies for your soft and kind words.
