Myself Unknown – Free Verse Poetry by Liyona

Radiate from me

And never be afraid

To speak light

In this evensong,

The grapes of wrath

Led me astray

Who will call

Me home?

Remember all of me

And never be afraid

To sing love

In this service

The body longs

To be whole

Who will laugh

At me?

Understand the me

A mirror that has

Yet to reflect

In this movement

Hands and feet

Bring me home

Who will name

My eyes?

Mystic Mister

Mystic mister

With bright green eyes

And hearts of gold

You number the glass jars

In your sanctuary

Mystic mister

With fire in your tongue

And lips of iron

You place the elixir

Next to your bedside

Waiting for the morning light

Mystic mister

With long dark arms

And locks of rose

You change your name

And identity 

With every passing day


This poem is directly inspired by the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge found here at Go Dog Go Cafe. The prompt this time was to Use fire, mystic, and identity in prose or poetry. I am working through older prompts to help spark my imagination.

Water fall

As the evening air

Cooled my silken hair

I found a place to sit

Against the 

Waterfall

As the lovers wandered

Red painted lips

I found a place, a home

And watch

The water

fall
