Hello fellow poets, I'm also new to this. I've submitted a couple of my poems, one of which is the following, I would love to have some feedback. Looking forward to hearing from you, Maria.
You caght me by surprise
With your clouded hazy notes
Seeping through the crevices of hidden places
Drifting in like gauzy smoke
Until tears rose at last
From that deeply flowing spring
Whose source is in the darkest cave
Where all my losses lie
You softly prised them from me
Those visions and those dreams
Of words and smiles of eyes and warmth
I marvelled at the freshness
Of the blood you drew so easily
With the softness of your sound
Those long lost moments not gone
But with me here and now
and when you slowly drifted off
Leaving what I felt still clear
I lingerd in the aftertaste
Of memories of promises
To find my soul again

God will defend we like a guard he will stand
looking left and right from the east he will descend,
spread out your wings cause in heaven we will ascend,
and never be afraid cause in love we shall dwell.
a look from your eyes tell me whether you regret
falling for a man whose heart is intent,
whose looking for a future from a being whose contempt,
much love and blessing creature you are like a saint.
beauty from the heavens, tell me whether you melt
if i take a bite from your body will you tell?

My latest free flow. I tried to give it a little structure too, to link the stanza. Does it then seize to be free flow?Angels fall
Sometimes it is because they are tripped
No one really to show them the way
Easily received but selfishly not wanted
Left to their own devises and what they know
They land on dirty grown, grubby nails and knees and they scramble around in ignorant bliss
Sometimes it is because they were pushed
Someone forgets to polish the treasure
Taken for granted that the ring was binding
Left to their longing and desires and what they deserve
They fall on soft feathers, that leave imprints of guilty relief, and they languish a while.
Sometimes it is out of the blue for no good reason at all
No one trips them, no one pushes them
A grip so tight round the heart
They land in the ocean that is their heart and it must be deep enough for all this love as nothing else makes any sense.
Few are the angels that keep their wings
Please don't look down on us in that way
This flight for you was smooth
We all chose whether we live cushioned by a cloud or on the ground!

Hello to my Fellow Poets:
I'm new around here. Please read and comment on my poems-I would love to have your feedback. Here's my newest:
Dervishes and Mastery
Time has slapped me in the face
The air was thick and settled
A new tick
A slower second
You have mastered time
You have mastered
You've really swept me off my feet.
Haven't let me down to breathe
Bury me deeper
Steal my atmosphere
Let me die this way
Heart speeding in a hundred different directions
I'm a flat out fool
I'm a fish out of water
I've grown wings
You tell me I'm your goddess
In frenzied dervishes you paint me
You whisper: muse
You brush my face with a smile
Is the creator of something divine
A god himself?

Why I Write?
My child you ask me why
And so I give a sure reply
The reason why I write you ask?
I do so to unveil a mask -
To state a claim my dear
And climb above a fence at last
The reason why I write
Is to be free -
As that young lad's kite
To flee from charmless grips
And stray from harm's lustful flight
You ask me why I write today?
I do so that you go away!
To a place, within my space
That way I'll have a worthy say
I write my dear to tell a tale
Of places that I once had sailed
The promises that were never had
The eluded dreams that made me sad
The reason why I write a verse
Is to soothe this soul I thought was cursed
To trod with care through lonely roads
And pray my troubles be reversed
The reason why I write to you
Is so you ‘ll see my point of view
That in all things, there is a verse
A spring that takes away all thirst
