On the inside you cry
on the outside, hard as steal.
lips stern, no tenderness.
Heart shielded by fear,
soul surrounded by deceit.
The cruel, cold world engulfs,
it slithers through your emotions
making you a survivor the hard way.
But at what price to your humanness.
Will it ever be your turn again,
to feel, to touch, to kiss,
if not, at least you had a moment.
Steel can be melted,
lips can again taste sweetness.
Shields can be lowered,
deceit destroyed by trust built.
Do not give up on true passion,
never surrender to the pain in your heart.
Timothy Michael DiVito c1993
I have been writing poetry for 44 years. I began writing poetry when I was 15 years old and to this date I have written over 16,000 poems. I have had poems published in The San Fernando Journal, The Rag Mag, WYRD, The Cultural Reverence(e-magazine) and in Kiiroo(e-magazine), Mobius and the World Peace Anthology. I have over 1000 poems published in all. I also have a poetry page on Wix.com entitled anemotionaljourney.com. I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time. The first is entitled "The Angel and the Witches, the second is "Once Upon A Halloween" and the third is "The Devil's Playground".
