    Melford's Poetry
          Well, I've decided to put my poetry here as well. It is for a very broad audience, so hopefully you will understand. The book of Job is often quite dark and Solomon's Song of Songs is at times quite racey for those who understand what is being said. Hopefully, I will not exceed the Bible in either context, but I am willing to accept that some of my work may be taken down as inappropriate for this forum. For those of you who wish to have non-Christians read my stuff and maybe pique their curiousity, just be sure to tell them that this is a Christian Community, and they shouldn't consider your gesture to be misleading.

    Virgin Paper

    A new page lies before me.
    I must write, but what?
    Before the covers close
    And the book is through.

    A clean page, spotlessly clean,
    Beckoning my lifeblood, drawing my ink.
    I wish to speak, but
    My pen just won't do.

    The page fades not with time
    Only my eyes see dimmer now
    The outline, drawn around
    Spelling the end of this pass.

    The page has no end
    Yet I, a poor beggar
    Plead come a new dawn, not dusk,
    Not to drown alone in the carbon black abyss.

    What do I write?

    The Sailor's Words

    Listen to the whisper of solace, deep within,
    When all around you blow the winds of turmoil and strife,
    Sail straightaway across tempest tossed seas of din;
    Hold steadfast and true on the course you chose for life,

    And remember this my dear:
    I never found the words to say good-bye.

    Cast your nets to the sea, diligently,
    Hoping for the ultimate catch, come your way;
    Then will you realize that the catch I can't be;
    I was tossed upon the shore, yet, loving you, went away,

    But believe this my love:
    I never knew the words to say hello.

    Star Struck Heart

    A thousand and one joys, are flowing in my heart;
    A thousand and one years, of happiness from the start;
    A thousand and one words, could not tell you how I feel;
    A thousand and one ways, all my love could not reveal;
    A thousand far dreamscapes, cavort before my eyes;
    A thousand times over, my soul soars past the skies;
    See it sparkle, see it gleam,
    molten passion, free to dream;
    A stellar heart, burning sun, rocketing by, where comets run;
    See it glitter, see it glow, its a star, or don't you know?
    Its all yours, so steal it away,
    for its true, you made me this way.

    Behind frozen masks of painted smiles,
    Sitting and laughing at the insanity,
    In his lonely, tented solitude,

    Only the snowblind clown saw reflected,
    The blizzard of tears like snowflakes,
    In the scintilating shards of his shattered soul,

    Driven on tormented, wailing winds,
    Slowly drifting deeper, while pain cries STOP,
    In the lost reaches of an endless storm.
