Sharing some poetry

Hey readers I thought I would share some poetry of mine and perhaps even get some feedback. First I’ll let you know a little about me as a poet. I write from the heart, from my strongest feelings and am usually inspired. I do not usually just write about things or everyday life. I tend to write about love or heartbreak.

Bound Angel

By:

Rebecca Conrad

My body a prisoner…I lie here in wait for you…
My heart, my hand, my life, my soul are all held captives to you…
I could fly away…soar to you only in my dreams
My wings are bound by circumstance…trapped so far from you.
You will free me from my bindings…take all my pain and torture away.
Your love rescues me and mends my broken wings.
You love me with a faithful heart…an undying devotion you have given to me alone.
My body a prisoner…I lie here in wait for you…
I would wait an eternity if only to be within your arms again…
I am bound by nightmares which I cannot awake from…
I am only free when you and I are together as one…
My heart, my hand, my life, my soul are all held captives to you…
Here I am forever bound until you make the miles apart a distant memory.

 

Love In Full Bloom

By:

Rebecca Conrad

I was in no need of weaving a spell on you.
Yet what we have and share is indeed magical.
I am in no need of tricking you.
You know me inside and out, as I know you.
I am not blindly loving you.
I see just as clearly as you, what deep and meaningful connection we will share eternally.

This love no longer a beginning.
Yet has no end.
Our sweet love is in full bloom.
It grew in a moment, was deep in an instant.
This fully bloomed love, is my greatest of joys.

 

Renewal

By:

Rebecca Conrad

We walk together hand in hand, as we have for nearly four years now.
Again with you, I’ll say a vow.
What a beautiful day it will be when I become yours all over again.
(to my husband with love)

All three of these poems can be found in my book of poetry which is self published on Smashwords. I will paste the link here.

 

 

 

deep thoughts that came out of no where

its funny how the mind works when u’ve spent most of ur day being treated like shit by someone. sittin here thinking and thought to myself, we ask kids what they wanna be when they grow up (yea yea we’re asking career wise) but think for a min if u could answer that now giving thought to what u have become or still wish to and with respect to all of your life so far. here’s my answer, when i grow up, i’ll be emotionally abused for many years by someone who is supposed to love me n defend me with his life(ie my “father”) when i grow up i will be the mommy to two wonderful boys, not perfect mom but the best i can be. when i grow up i wont have money to shower my kids with spoils but instead will be the mom who tells them the difference between someone who truly loves u and those who try to buy ur love. when i grow up i will have found the love of my life, my twin flame, and guess what he won’t always do everything right, i may have times he hurts my feelings or says or does something that makes us fight…but guess what else? he’s my one and only truest of true loves, he’s the one i ache for when my heart feels like it’s dying and he’s the one who’s hand i gripped so tight while having our son that i didn’t even know i was holding his hand. so last of all when i grow up…i’ll be ME.

Lost Love

Like Feathers On Wind

By:

Rebecca Conrad

Dreams that float away, like feathers on wind…
Dreaming of all, that I wished to never end.
Fragments and pieces, of years we knew…
Flying away…soaring from you.
I know nothing as beautiful, or as meaningful as all we shared.
Nothing takes me, to the heights your love dared.

Dreams that soar through my mind…
If only for us…life could rewind.
Fragments…or puzzles even, it’s all so hard to piece together again.
Flashing, fading away…as if loving you was my sin…
If that’s so, then bless me Father, or forgive me, if You will.
Life rushes by…I’m lost, lying still.
    
Dreams are all I have, all that’s left of you and me.
If that’s so…what future do I see?
Love lives on, in my un-waking hours…
While all we once had, just sours.
I’ll never know, what could have been or what still can be…
All I know…are those dreams I still see.
Like feathers on wind…that soared through the window of my mind one night…    

Onto a memory, I hold forever tight.
What are dreams?  If not the heart’s truest desire?
But like flames burning on wind…those dreams burn and scorch me, like hellfire…
Each day I wake, without you near…
Being forever without…a great, despairing fear.

Yet like those dreams…for so long I lived within but too…I faded away…
Into sorrow and longing, waiting to nothing…waiting for someday…
When I slumber deep, my heart may call out to you.
You don’t hear my cry…my deepest pleas…but I’ll look for you there, knowing not, what else to do.
I lay down to sleep, daydreaming of all others…
Not intentionally seeking you out…my soul smothers.
    
Dreams that have all but, floated away…
Like flighty feathers on wind…off they sway.
You’re not still here, yet I continue to find you there.
Lost my hope…without a prayer.
You’re long gone…until I dream you up, once more.
I’m afraid to go on alone…what do I go on for?

Dreaming that soars…
You were never mine…as I’m not yours.
But that didn’t stop my heart from longing…
It didn’t stop you from wronging…
You went away…don’t call…don’t write…
Still in my dreams I’ll find you…many a lonely night.
Like feathers on wind…you came and went from me….

Poem For Dave

Even When We Are Apart

By:  

Rebecca Conrad

A whisper in the wind.
A breath on my neck.
An everlasting presence.
The one holding me tight and keeping me close as I dream of you.
You are there even when we’re apart.

Miles between and miles beyond won’t matter once I am in your embrace again.
Our connection a bond that makes us unbreakable.
Days can go by and months can linger on when we are apart.
But as long as we belong to one another, heart and mind…It matters not.
