Poem: Broken Soul

Broken Soul

I stand before you

a broken soul

in little things we meant

so much more

when times so great

senses came alive

met horrible endings

and still pulled though

but enough was enough

or so they say

and a frayed soul

is all that remains

yet can I recover

can my tapestry

be rewoven

or am I to remain

this broken soul?

UNTIL THEN – a Guest Poem by Cheryl Scheffer Nilar

Today we feature a guest poem submitted to us by Cheryl here on Wanderer Thoughts Poetry.

UNTIL THEN

a guest poem by Cheryl Scheffer Nilar

Dancing, tiptoeing here I am
Brought in from the mists
of a faraway land
Listening to the echo
of winter winds
Here I bask
in the warmth of
Summer’s sun
Now I cannot
ever look back.

The falling leaves
must kiss the ground
In never ending rhythmic flow
Then lie until
the sun outshines
Their burst of gold
Decaying in softest
winter leaves
Until then …
Here I will be found.

Thank you for reading today’s guest poem, please take the time to let our guest poet know what you thought of their work by leaving a comment.

Poem: Arrow through Heart

It struck me like an arrow through heart

a realization that life would never be the same

that the mundane was no more acceptable

something greater just stepped into my life

beauty with no equal in mind and body

love at first sight was not a farce

because I knew when I saw you

my life was just beginning

and all that came before

was the prelude

my love

you

Poem: Where Was My Country?

“the ironies are obvious. To survive as a soldier in an overseas conflict, only to be killed in your neighborhood upon your return.”

Where Was My Country?

A country served in duty

wars not fought in a day

friends and brothers lost

yet I came home that day

a home that forgot heroes

and why we were there

disputes that end in blood

in our own homeland

is this worth fighting for

is this worth dying for

this soldier has fallen

surviving a war

only to die at home

-Poem by Justin Germino
