>STING – Brand New Day-teachers-someone I once loved / poets united #15 Leonard Cohen

Teachers
always the right time: never wrong
exits became entrances in a place where everything
seemed askew; emotions high and nothing normal;
then paint touched a canvas: magic was created
windows flung on paths to highways
opening a book: the universe was revealed lands
visited and a life became vibrant with words and shapes

Someone I once loved
I want to bundle up wrap myself in furs: to protect me from
The chill I feel whenever you’re around: cast aside those
imprudent possessions and let them rot in era: or put them in a safety
box with heavy weights: and throw it in the sea to watch it sink:
the coldness is abusive it chafes my mind and soul
I must cover up to keep a thick layer between you and I

  1. >Two interesting poems, Pamela. In the first poem I especially like "a life became vibrant with words and shapes." And, in the second poem, I really feel the chill right along with you. Some people one DOES need to keep a thick layer between.
