There is no shelter.

Same Train, Different Track

There is no shelter
Where they can lay their weary head
A concrete step, that is their nightly bed
Winter winds whipping beneath the bridge
Vermin a plenty scuttling along its ridge.

There is no shelter
As they struggles with the task in hand
Fighting those demons, a life not planned
Not a bridge of dreams but nightmares
They speak, yet no one gives a damn, no one cares
Rising, lying, twisting, turning
Head throbbing, stomach churning
Drenched through, lonely to their core
Weary of the approach of dawn, what lies in store?

There is no shelter
From the anguish of the night
The fusion of past and present, nothing to delight
Crumbling hovels, thoughts of resentment
Fear, weariness, falling down, dark thoughts ever present
A grieving heart weighed down by betrayal
No longer capable of grief.

There is no shelter
A voice in the wilderness. Now silent.
(c) Chris…

The House on Grayson Place ~ #poetry

Night Owl Poetry - Dorinda Duclos


Hurry up, she’d always say

Having all the time in the world

Speaking curtly to everyone

She watched, as they unfurled

Making sure the laundry was folded

And the beds, all properly made

Vacuuming carpets completely

Ne’er forgetting to dust the lampshade

She held them all accountable

They’d cower, at the look on her face

Making sure they were tormented

In this house on Grayson Place

Stories are still told about her

How nasty she was to her staff

Yet, no one really knew of her existence

She’s just a woman, in a photograph

Return – #InspirationalPoetry

A beautiful poem by my friend Morgan at booknvolume.com. Please enjoy her work. 😊

Return

.

I Walk in Starlight

I Dance in Moonbeams

I Sing with the Whispering Owl

I Wander with the Coursing Heavens

I Hold Your Mystery in my Heart

I Listen to the Song of the Wind

I Hope in the Mighty Sunrise

I Give of Myself Everyday

I Reach for the Grasping Hand

I Touch the Lonely Heart

I Cry with the Grieving Stranger

I Mourn the Loss of Life

I Remember Sweet Harmony

I Pray for Its Beauteous Return
