To Unlock My Heart #napomo #poetsunited #poetry

I heard the song of sorrow

swinging in the trees

“So very long”

time passed

you hung there

out of reach

releasing me

from this prison



“finding the key”

to the lock

a many keyed puzzle

lifetime’s maze


“give up”

I shout

whispered entreaty in silence

“please try”

a tear from the past

waters the soil

a buried heart

given up on life

and hope

a hand grasps

barren, corroded key

“Wait it is here!!!”

he calls from his grave

 hope turns

opens the lock

unleashes two


I weep


he smiles

 lives opened together

“joined by one key”

Believe in the conduit

of the art of poetry

dear reader

for in it

a poet can be one with the words

a reader can feel himself open

at times

 per chance

both reader and poet

for that singular moment

are united

thus the poem

 the key of many an undoing

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

    1. Thank you for visiting and foollwing my blog! Your story is amazing, and gives me hope. I have so many family members lost in addiction and other bad situations and even though I know that God is mighty and can move in people’s lives, it’s still discouraging sometimes to feel like there is no hope for those family members. God bless you as you continue your walk with Him!
