Quoted Quilts...A poem (Reposted from April 2014)

Quoted Quilts
By MR aka Naila Moon

Quietly I quilted quotes on a Spring day.
Stitching gently without a quirk.
Quintuplet quotes spread across the quilt.

My hands did not quiver,
But ran smoothly in a quick pace.

No one quibbled about my quotes upon my quilt,
And I am sure you will not either.

For you are quite content
To watch my quest,
To finish my quality of quoted quilts.
For I am the queen of them.

Gone by MR aka Naila Moon...a poem

Gone
by M.R. aka Naila Moon of the Grey Wolf

I have a hurt so entrenched
That my soul cries.

Wounded
Does not begin to describe
My pain.

I had hoped
For a better outcome
But,
Suffering seems to be
My life.

Why cannot I have love
And
Be loved?

Why do thing always seem
One sided?

Why do I have to feel
Rejected again?

Why!

I have been subjected to
Being stabbed in the heart.
Over
And
Over
And
Over.

I feel like
Nothing.
My happiness
Gone.

The Song of Love...a poem

The Song of Love

My heart beats like a song played over and over.
You are my lover, my chosen one.

You manage to pluck the strings just right,
So my soul soars like that of an eagle.

A song raises within me
Hopeful to be with you.

Oh, how it sings!
The notes rise higher and higher
As your love for me grows in syncopated breaths.

Ah, how lovely that is.
Sweet purity in voice,
And total beauty.

Oh, how I love you.

Writer's Block...a poem

Writer's Block

Looking down at the blank sheet
I saw
Nothing!

How could this be?
I know the letters can form
Words.

I know that the words
Can form
Sentences.

Yet, here I am.
Staring.
Wondering.
Hoping.
Screaming!
Praying,
My way through this.

Why me?
Why now?

I must break through.
I must have ink to the paper.
I must form the words.
I must...

Oh, failure!

Untitled Poem about Remorse...

Photo and Poem By:MR...aka Naila Moon

Looking out onto the river,
her tears flowed freely.
It had been not even a year ago.
 
"How could it be true?" she questioned herself.
"How can I look at them again?"
 
The answers weren't there.
Only sadness and a solemnness with the smooth running water. 
 
Her eyes filling up with tears again,
continued speaking out into the air as if someone was there
to hear her cries.
 
"What have I done?"
"What can I do to remove this pain?" she cried out.
 
No answers came because the truth was...
the cancer had returned.
All she could do was pray.

*This poem was written in response to a writing challenge to write in 100 words about remorse without using the word. At this time, the poem is untitled because I could not think of a title other than the word, "Remorse".

.A Nation Wept...In Memory of Sept. 11th

A Nation Wept
In Memory of Sept. 11th
By Michelle R. aka Naila Moon
copyright Sept. 11, 2013/All rights reserved

A nation wept

The Mothers
The Fathers
The Children
The Unborn.

A nation wept

The tears of horror
The tears of loss
The tears of fear
The tears of unbelief.

A nation wept

In huddles
In aloneness
In solitude
In mass.

A nation wept

Moments of brokenness
Moments of insecurity
Moments of anger
Moments of togetherness.

A nation wept

Then bolstered
Then resolved
Then rebuilt
Then remembered.

A nation wept no more.

Thoughts In The Morning Revealed...a new poem

Thoughts In The Morning Revealed
By MR aka Naila Moon of the Grey Wolf
copyright May 27, 2013 All Rights Reserved

Lost in my thoughts
As the sunrises over the mountains of the Rockies
To reveal the mornings dew.

My mind scrambled
In a million directions
Wanting longingly to be
With you,
Yet, that seems impossible.

You seem so distant
From what we once were.
A dream
Of yesteryear.
A blink in my eye
That is no more.

Why?

I ask this
As if there really is
An Answer,
But I know,
There is not.

So, I return
To the sunrise
And become once again lost
In my lonely thoughts.
