the rest of them are there
while i keep myself inside
where the only refuge is hiding
and hiding is a friend of fear
and fear is living deep within
without You is incomplete
in all imperfections, i stray
out of the crowd, out of You
bye bye bye, goodnight lullaby
darkness fills my eyes
how can i be blind?
i merely miss the light
let me run where the wild horses are free
let me dance where the flowers are real
let me walk with You on the road of perpetuity
it’s not beautiful where the colors are tampered
where the world is black and white and blur
without You while i stand alone in my world
has an ugly setback from this choice
there are no more excuses
undo me, tame me, take me
let us stand together in our world

Your poetry is amazing and truly inspirational.
thanks for being amazed and inspired to my poem! 🙂
If you have a simple thought you have to realise that it offends those that complicate things. Blessed are they who do not get offended. Not like the beggar who was offended by me offering every thing I had in my pocket.
Loved this poem Chester. I am sure I will enjoy exploring the rest of your blog.
thanks Helen for loving this poem! 🙂

Out of the closet I came
going to Jerusalem
was a suicide mission
I am alive so
I am still a sencient
being a shameles shaman
I must be lifted
so that I may draw all men
into my presence
remember my visit
Who can ever forget it
how can I forget
………Where the world is black and white and blur. Brilliant. Gorgeous poem.

Hi there. Thanks for dropping by and loving this poem! 🙂
Chester, that’s good deep stuff. I can feel the isolation and it takes me back to some of my own issues I’ve dealt with. If you get a chance, check out one of Robert Frost’s rarer poems, called The Subverted Flower. It’s awesome, although it’s about rejection as well. That’s the one that first struck a chord with me when I was younger about what I was going through, although it’s about a relationship desired, not a relationship broken.
thanks for suggesting…i really need to read more poetry from great writers…I’ll check on Frost’s later…good thing you have mentioned that! 🙂
Thanks for finding my blog. I’ll be happy to follow yours.
You’re welcome and thanks too! 🙂

Great Poetry. Thanks for sharing and also for looking at my blog
Hi there! You’re welcome and thanks too! 🙂
thanks so much! 🙂
That’s a deeply meaningful poem. I enjoyed it. I like many lines but my favorite is where you say that hiding is a friend of fear — so true. Thanks for visiting my blog and reading The Midnight Train. Good luck with your writing. I hope to see more.
thanks for particularly liking this poem and I’m glad i’ve visited your blog and I look forward to more of your writing! 🙂 I also wish you more success in the field of writing! 🙂
Normally I am horrified and disgusted at what passes for poetry today, and even more so by the people who think they can write it. Not so with you. I feel touched when I come across the honest expression of an intense inner-state. It is immediately recognisable to me, and I feel the connection.
I am delighted to hear your thoughts about getting connected with my poem. Thank you very much for letting me know how you appreciate it! You made me smile too! 🙂
You are a really good poet! I love this one!
thanks so much for appreciating this
Hello, I saw you stopped by my skdd site and wanted to learn a bit about you. I love poets when they bare their souls. Well done. 🙂
Hi Theresa! Thanks for visiting my site too! 🙂
The essence of the poem is captured well in its title.
thanks for really liking this one! 🙂
Thanks a lot for visitng my blog again. The poem depicts clearly the internal feeling of a person for the pertner. Such a yearning is a natural one when one takes love as a necessity in life. Anyhow, thanks again.
you’re welcome and thanks to you too for visiting my blog and for liking this one! 🙂
This is just outstanding. And thanks for the likes.
Oh, thanks so much! 🙂
Thanks you very much for visiting my blog and liking the poem entitled, ‘Ied-ul-Fitr’. All your writing has been outstanding indeed, as you are clear in your vision.

man, this is wickedly genius!
