The Warmth I Had With You

by Donald Standeford  
12/30/2012 / Poetry

Listening to the city bells,
City bells, tolling bells,
By an ash can alley below,
I ready myself to reveal my-

This time I won't fail,
I promise you, I will win,
In spite of all that's gone
Before, this time I won't
Let you down;
Pull you down;
I'll make this sacrifice as you
Taught me to,

To the rolling, tolling bells
Push all pillars must be pushed,
Must collapse and fall
To the ashen valley below;

I'll burn old barns get in my way,
Face all the pillars
I must face,
Watch the building come
Tumbling to you;
Hear shod shoes hit
The ground
I won't roll over;
I'll come to you;

Buried in madness, I shall arise
Lance to lance against these dark nights
On icy mudded
Fields of dreams
Prophecy flows in future
Streams from your lips

Fire my muse, faith my means,
I with no field to sell
For this pearl of great price,
A coward who ran from everything,
Cursed by depression's deepest
Sorrows, I the bad son,
I the challenged one;
I, no pearl of great price,
I a coward
For running away, once in
Depression and worse deep sorrow
I give my mite to you this day,
My motive the emotion stirring me;
I take upon me the legacy

Even as the streets release me,
Dark corners, cold dangerous alleys
I once hid within in my mortal fears;

No longer do I embrace the cold;
But the keeper of the fold.

Don V Standeford
