Welcome to POEMSPEAK, where poets and poetry lovers alike can come together to share a rewarding and thought provoking moment.
We at POEMSPEAK believe in the wonders that are expressed through poetry.
Poetry paints a picture in your mind and heart which opens up a creative and mentally sound tomorrow.
The winner of the poetry competition is Jill Marie Merillo. We will also be reading her poem on our radio show. Please enjoy "He is the Sun."
Another poem we will highlight on our radio show is by Jassim Khan.
He is the Sun
He is the sun, that shines on my despair
Radiating a warmth of love so rare
His strength pushes the clouds of loneliness away
While on his pure brightness my eyes stray
His rays reach my waiting arms
To caress my cool skin with his charms
Sometimes blinding me with a heavy haze
Turning my head with his simple rays
He is the sun, that shines on my cold heart
Quickening it with promises to never part
Although the somber rains always seem to appear
His light shines through my darkest fear
Even waiting through the melancholy night
Cherishing the thought of being in my sight
Lulling me to sleep with his reflected glance
Shining his love off the moon like a dance
He is my sun, that shines on only me
Burning my life with strength to be
Fueling my needs with love and care
Holding my hand when I just can't bare
He gives me shelter with his fierce heat
With his devotion no other can compete
Night and day he proves his love is strong
But I always feel cold when he's gone too long
