Mirrored Hearts - The Rainbow Lounge

So I decided to take a different approach...I know rhyming is mostly my style...but I decided take a crack at freestyle...so I hope it's as good if not better...here it goes...

I speak to you

in the mirror

I am standing

here looking at you

looking endlessly

without a thought

without your soul

with a frozen heart

emotionless and blank

gazing even deeper

from that mirror

with no fire in those eyes

losing your life essence

with each breath you take

losing your grasp

the last of your hope

slips away like the wind

with each tear you shed

yet you continue

to stare at me

from the mirror

and I stare back

from my world

expecting to learn

your thoughts

your emotions

but I get nothing

you don’t speak

you just stare at me

with a blank face

listening to me

and I stare back

waiting for a response

something to go on

but nothing

not even a whisper

you are still here

looking at me

as if you are waiting

but why?

There is no one here

only us

we only have each other

we are here and yet

you push me away

my words fall before

reaching your ears

my fiery heart

unable to free yours

from its frozen grasp

my kiss

cannot reach your lips

and breathe new life

the light within me

fails to renew the hope

that you have lost

for me

for yourself

for us

what more can I do?

What more can I offer?

I have given you my all

we are two opposites

seeking to join as one

but this mirror

curses our souls

to be so close

and never

be able to merge

with one another

now the day is over

and there you are still

just as empty

and I’m still here

in front of you

waiting patiently

just as you are

we are never alone

we continue to meet again

everytime we look within

from inside our mirror.

very good. not all poems have to rhyme. freestyling is a to show emotion, the poets emotion as I've done several times. share more with us if you have them.

I know they don't have to rhyme...but I like to rhyme...but freestyling is a more emotionally liberating...I go thru a whole journey while writing this...& it helped me feel better...

Excellent freestyle, I'm a lousy rhymer but my freestyle poetry is well liked. Love all other forms of poetry, everyone has their own talents.

yea I love rhyming...but freestyle gives me that release...because I don't necessarily look for words that rhyme...so I see why there are many freestyle poets...lol...
