Poetry Tuesday – A Secret of Beauty Remained Untold #poetry #poem #amwriting #tuesday

Where runs a mystery,

My bleeding heart strays,

Trying to seek a cure

To put my mind at ease.

There in the shadows

Lies hidden in the dusk

All that I find precious,

Which others don’t understand.

All the most amazing jewels

Lie hidden for millions of years

In a dull facade of rock,

But within the heart

Of the hardened exterior,

There lies a secret

Of beauty remained untold.

 

Where withers a dying tree,

My hopeful heart nourishes,

Trying to bring back life

To make my mind turn.

There in the graveyard

Lies hidden all those lost,

Yet I find love,

Which others don’t understand.

All those departed from this place

Lie hidden within mourning hearts

In a masked blur of memories,

But within the heart

Of the dying body,

There lies a secret

Of beauty remained untold.

 

Where hides a lost one,

My sorrowful heart extends,

Trying to touch another

In a way deeper than truth.

There in the other

Lies hidden a glorious heart,

And a connection builds,

Which others don’t understand.

All those who are sad

Lie hidden in the careless world,

But within the heart

Of my very body,

There lies a secret

Of beauty remained untold…

Until now.
