Hours (Original) Registered & Protected

"when the moon plays," original photography by (+Lotus Carroll)

When your shadow leaves mine
The clouds will cover the sun
Only to deny the fact
“She has left you still.”

Was it not the crowds
that set us apart?
“I will depart”
The three lurid words!

Your ongoing obsession to please
has left you with nothing at all.
Well you must learn to think of self
Before attempting to please others.

I won't go for long without your presence.
The moon will rise, day will descend
Until I see your eyes; yes your eyes!
The sunshine in my life.

Without feeling your breath
Or hearing your heart beat,
I will seek the person who did me well.

For you are the one I want by my side,
The one that runs through my mind.
Have a seat and enjoy the time you have.
I will be here, until we find ourselves again.

-Erick Flores

    Ink runs from the corners of my mouth

    I have been eating poetry.

  8. Nice work...Your ongoing obsession to please
    has left you with nothing at all..that is a problem I have had at times..Your poem speaks of patience. That is so hard when dealing with someone who spreads his/her self too thin

  9. Hello Susie,
