Poetry - "Holding Onto Hope"

"Holding Onto Hope"

Contemplating echoes
Pressing thru my tears
Holding onto hope
Bearing thru my fears
Removing clothes within
Having different skin
Wanting to run away
Never return again
Watching for a moment
A twinkle of my eye
When all the changes
Take me by surprise
Overturning memories
Sifting thru the lines

Poetry titled, "Waking Up"

"Waking Up"

A glimmer of perfect light
With hues of sapphires and gold
Words that were gently spoken
Of echoes through the night
I wondered in the shadows
Fiery coals burning within
The keys were holding open
A place I'd never been
I turned for an instant
Time seemed to stand still
A pondering this deep moment
I shivered from the chill
The likeness of appearance
I could never see or feel
Then the dream went silent
I pulled back the veil
I awakened from yesterday
Into a dreamy spill

Poetry "A Stun Of Interference"

"A Stun Of Interference"

Below the surface
Subjective thoughts
Arising within
Overturning reasonings
A capture of light
Memberings quickening
I hold on tight
To My Rock
My Salvation
Mine Great King
Inner soul delights
I breathe again
Inspiring flavors
Of noble delights
Embracing my shadows
Modifying to life

Poetry called "Conscious Recovery"

You left me alone
I waited in the dark
Hues of mystery told
Beholding the heart
A turbulent breaking
The rambling overload
Seasons come and gone
Years lost among range
Constant undirected plans
Ceased overthrown pains
A cloak of darkness
Off the norm and old
Flickering sand in glass
Time was melting slow
Remounting to the wind
Yet now stronger tuned
Amist the overflowings
Days of morning dews
Awakened once again
Still planless yearning
Ageless remembering you

Why Woundest Thou My Soul Poetry

Why Woundest Thou My Soul
By Tonya Ashe

Why woundest thou my soul?
Your constant quiet inner whispers
Woundest thou my soul
So quietly I await thee
Hidden deep inside
Yet you ignore me
And I'm wounded again
Why woundest thou my soul?
Can't you move toward me?
Can't you look my way?
Why doest thou ignore me?
Why won't you stay?
So gently I await thee
Please stay anyways
Stop listenening inner voices
To the lies and betrays
Listen to me gently
to the Words of my Heart
Please stay anyways
I need you so desperately
Gently my heart says
Please stay Anyways
Cuts so deep
Like a wounding knife blade
The armor is pierced
Here I gently lay
Can't you see me?
Underneath the raging rains
Feeling as a torrential sea
Merciless torments
Seeing my pains
Can't you see the forever?
My heart awaiting you inside
Hurting... I'm bleeding
Yet here comes another storm
Torrential piercings
I bareth for you
Again and again
Why can't thou seest me?
Underneath all this pain
Why tormentest thou my soul?
Please Stay!

This poem is about what a woman goes through when in an torrential relationship. If you have been abused then you will truly understand it.
