Mistakes

Mistakes short poem

Photo by opensourceway

I stopped to gaze
One mistake already made

Moody wind, pale snowflakes
Quite with mysteries
Dark and Delphic secrets
My legs froze, my body still
The ropes of the mesmerizing beauty tangled me
No struggle, no pain
A moment of eternal bliss

Life gave me puzzles
And mistakes are what I made,
To stop, to trust

The snow was covered on the naked land
Like a blanket of white peace
Hand in hand, I and the bewitching weather walked
I looked down its fuzzy and cloudy eyes
Regarded it as truthful friend
So manipulating yet so alluring
Through the gloomy forest and mean density
The weather and I walked hand in hand

To trust was a mistake
To love was another
Life had set out traps
and was chased to them

The unexpected cobbled stones, the crocked path
The darkness turned in
My dearest friend slipped out
Droplets of heavenly rain seemed coming from hell
The weather blossomed in misery and despair
Down on my knees I fell
And deep down my trust fell

Life gave me mistakes
Correction is what I didn’t do
But the greatest mistake I did
Was to then cease and cave in
Life gave me lessons
But I didn’t master in learning
But now where I stand
I see myself as a paint splash
So longing to clean it up
Alas! I just can’t.
Life gave me lessons
And mistakes are what I made
and mistakes are what I made .

Charred Mistakes

Charred Mistakes short poem

Inside me, I take a turn. By tightening the noose hangman feels liberated. In the grave, charred mistakes waking under the massive ashes of slaughtered sun, grieve for the light. Time was death. Every lovely tree was time, leaving footprints
