THE NIGHT IS MY HAVEN, MY SANCTUARY; IT CRADLES MY MUSE, MY VIGOR, MY SANGUINITY.
WHEN THEE AFTER DUSK COMETH LOOKING FOR ME, I REFLECT UPON THEE THAT'D COMETH ONTO ME.

The Fellowship

Sunday, November 23, 2008

friend

Come back, will you,
you-dragging your shadow.
Blinded by the white light
your shadow weighs a ton.
Haven't you been told?
Only your fight can feed your soul...

You won't be lost
won't be hurt
won't be left out in the dark...
We won't be
slipping off the edge
hanging by the thread...
We have a purpose
we fight on for you....

Let's fight this,
not being told
when to fold...
Let's not hear
another nay
so long as
the white light fades away.

Crooner,

The lines strike a chord. Brilliant is all I can say. Have nothing more to offer from my side.

Yes, like usual, I can offer a line or two from a great poet.


Still there
-----------

Been scared and battered.
My hopes the wind done scattered.
Snow has friz me,
Sun has baked me,

Looks like between 'em they done
Tried to make me

Stop laughin', stop lovin', stop livin'--
But I don't care!
I'm still here!


*cheers*

Trevor Penn said...

@ Soul
LOL! You're generous with your praise. If anything, it shows how rusty i've gotten with words after i almost gave up writing/blogging.

Trevor Penn said...

@ Phoenix
Glad you enjoyed reading 'em. :)

Trevor Penn said...

@ a fool such as i
Rachita, good to have you here. I'm glad you liked what i wrote and even more elated that you liked the photograph. :)
I hope you'll be here often. :)

Trevor Penn said...

@ Diana
Thank you, Diana. Believe it or not, i started with just those two lines in my head.

Trevor Penn said...

@ Prashant
True that, Prashant. Thanks for dropping by.

You do poetry really well. And you have quite an interesting blog...I enjoyed looking around.

Trevor Penn said...

@ WarmSunshine
Mehreen, i struggle to keep it simple. It might just have worked this one time. :)
It's great to have you in the fellowship. :)

Trevor Penn said...

@ vagabond

Pinku said...

Talking To My Soul said...

Hi Crooner.

Hope things are fine. Praying for all.

To be very honest, I feel terribly angry.

Trevor Penn said...

@ Pinku
Thank you.
I knew you'd like the pic. :) I grabbed my camera and clicked a few while they were still small. They've kinda grown up now. :)

@ Soul
Things won't be fine, Sib. For the families of the 100+, not in a long time.
The helplessness is turning into rage. It doesn't bode well.

Trevor Penn said...

@ Swayam
Thank you and good to see you back, Swayam. Where were you off to?

Trevor Penn said...

@ crystal
I wish she were lucky enough that i didn't have to write this.
Thanks for dropping by.

Trevor Penn said...

@ chasmebadoor
LOL! You're the second person to say that. Vertigo (is a small time alternative rock) band that once asked me to write songs for them. It didn't work out though because of logistical reasons.
My profile pic seems to be attracting attention, it's also getting blog hoppers here. The pups get a special chewy for that. :D

WarmSunshine said...

I see you've blogrolled me. Thankyou Trevor.

Oh ya... i posted a new fiction. I'm a little shaky about it :/

Give it a read please :)

happy bloggiing!

Trevor Penn said...

@ Warm Sunshine
Guilty as caught. :)
I read your post last night. The comment box just wouldn't pop on my sloth speed internet.

Keshi said...

Keshi.

Trevor Penn said...

@ Keshi
Thanx, Kesh. Good to see that a silver trail or two lead here as well. :-)

rashi_pratibimb said...

...that was brilliant:)

but hey, my "inferences" have started to differ :P

Trevor Penn said...

@ rashi
Thank you. :)
How do they differ? ;-)

rashi_pratibimb said...
