Sky-High, Looking Down on You©

lines3

I soar overhead

Looking down on all that you do

I see some scurry on their way to work

Others are off to school

I see old man Parker sitting on his porch stoop

All the pigeons gather with their beaks out

Waiting for their morning bread

Mr. Lee opens up his market

Placing fruits and vegetables outside his door

Officer Bill walks his morning beat

And Lucy’s out for her morning jog

All these things I miss

Now that I soar in the sky-high above you

I feel displaced here in limbo

Hoping for something different from what I now have

More like I was use too so long ago

If only it was yesterday

And all could be done again

Maybe, just maybe

I’d be back there with you again

Until then I stay sky-high, looking down on you

My Hands Wrapped Around Your Heart©

I find my hands wrapped around your heart

Holding it together

Hoping you won’t falter

Falter from all that you are

From all that you have to offer

Your heart appears broken

Broken and tired

Tired from the pain

The pain that you feel with every prick and prod

The pain that you feel as you sit in the chair with another nameless face beside you

Every visit tears a little more of your heart away

You yearn for a time before becoming sick

You are hopeful for tomorrow

But know it’s not in your hands

You ask for gods help

You hope he’s listening

Everyone you know and love supports you

You’re never alone

Each day you’re getting stronger

Your color is coming back

I even see your hair growing

You tell me you’re coming back

There’s a smile across your face

A familiar smile that I used to know

One that I’m happy to know again

Your prayers are being answered

Because here you are once again with

My Hands Wrapped Around Your Heart

I’m so happy that you’re ALIVE!

Each of us bound to the life that’s been chosen for us

Our fate is marked when we take our first breath

We are all innocent when first we arrive

We must be careful when choosing which road to take

All that we see may not be as it seems

Choices must be made with care

For they will determine  which road you will take

Opinions can’t be made solely on what is seen

We will have to live up to expectations of all those watching over us

Our schooling will prepare us for the career we hope to obtain

Our religion or beliefs will guide us morally

Love and friendship will handle the rest

As long as you stay true to who and what you want to be

Life should go your way

Nothing will come easy

Hard work reaps reward

Be thankful and grateful for each day

Show compassion and understanding to those who struggle

Struggle to find their way as you have found yours

Carry on as the you I’m proud to know you

Angels in the Sky©

Today I sat in my kitchen baking

A glow from the window caught my eye

From this glow came some flashes

These flashes where memories of those close to my heart

My dear grandmother Mucha knitting in her favorite chair

My brother Johnny playing hockey with his friends

My friends Magdalena and Gabriela telling stories of their childhood

My husband Kris telling old war stories about his friends

These flashes I hold close to me sent from the angels up above

Each time the light gleams through my window

I hope for more memories

So I will again sit in my kitchen

Baking again waiting for those flashes

Flashes from the Angels get me through thick and thin

You might not realize it, but you are my bully© by Felina Silver Robinson

You told me my ideas weren’t good enough
Then presented them as your own
You made me do all the dirty work that no one else would do
Then you to credit for doing it
When something was missing
You told everyone that it was probably me
When no one else would donate  to class events I gave the difference
You gave everyone else credit but me
When I carry I smile
You always turn it into a frown
Oh how I wish that you weren’t my bully

The Fear You Bring To Me© by Felina Silver Robinson

My eyes are filled with tears
So much so its blinding
My arms tingle
As they dangle loosely beside me
My ears are ringing
As your screams literally paralyze me
Me with fear
You taunt me with your threats
You wait until I cower
To ensure you’re in control
One day I’m going to find the strength
To see that you don’t get your way

I’ve got my own style© by Felina Silver Robinson

Sometimes bright
Sometimes groovy
Sometimes tightly
Sometimes loosely
Sometimes flats
Sometimes pumps
Sometimes simple
Sometimes Out there
Sometimes happily
Sometimes sadly
But every time
It’s all me
Just the way I Like it
Footloose
And Fancy Free

Note to my new readers: About my “Poem Bursts” – I give myself 30 seconds to one minute, and then write what comes to mind. This is a fun writing exercise I give myself to come up with something different from what I might usually write. I hope you enjoy the outcome.


A Lonely Eternity© by Felina Silver Robinson

My eyes may be closed and
I may look like I’m sleeping
But truly I’m wide awake
Trapped inside myself
Watching all that goes on without me
I can see you, but you don’t see me
I’m laughing and I’m crying but you can’t hear me
I’m dancing, almost flying
But you won’t dance with me nor fly with me
Everyone gathers around the shell of me
Crying so hard and asking me why I left them
I don’t understand because nothings changed for me
Except no one sees or hears me
In fact, they can’t even feel me
Wont someone come and save me
Or am I to be stuck here for an eternity
In a place where no one hears or feels me

In My Heaven Above© by Felina Silver Robinson

I soar high amongst the clouds
In the company of all those who’ve come and gone before you
This place is peaceful and serene
There’s no time clock to punch
No cars honking to pass you by
Endless clouds line the Sky
And nightfall never comes
There are no enemies
There’s no competition
Everyone sits happily passing the time of day
No cars honking to pass you by
Endless clouds line the Sky
And nightfall never comes

What’s to come© by Felina Silver Robinson

I’ve come, I’ve gone
I’ve stayed and played
I’ve slept then wept
I’ve come to realize
That no matter what I do
No matter who I do it with
We’re all stuck here together
In this place so perfect
Where nothing is ever out of place
Where nothing is ever broken or needs to be replaced
Sometimes I wish there was a secret door
Where I could turn back
And erase my mistake
Whatever it was that brought e here
To this perfect place where no one makes mistakes
But no such luck
So bud I suggest you come here
And I’ll give you the rest of the score
Of what more is in store
