An empty space. I know it well.
Where dreams withold their inner soul.
Oh, would it be that I could tell
How long she waiteth in the hold.

There shadows linger. Dark doth fall.
I wait upon her voice to say
A line, a word for me to call
And pen each breath along the way.

Still silence grips this hollow night.
My eyes doth close in agony.
To pray for some aside delight
From depths to flow inside of me.

Yea, love conceals. She will not show.
Such empty void, no words to hear.
How will I find my love to know
When thoughts do fail to dare appear?

My Love! thou art the written word
Though now thou hideth sweet romance.
Thou hast, for now, withheld thy chord
And bidden me to take this chance.

No ink will blot this poem tonight
Oh, Brian, ne’r ‘gain this ask of me
Though words I love, I cannot write.
Seems I just can’t pen poetry.

Kenny, so beautiful! I loved it. But, who's Brian? Blessings, Karri

Who's Brian??!!

Above is the first poem I've ever written.

If you care to read my second poem, penned just hours later, you may view it here: http://www.faithwriters.com/article-details.php?id=21104

Good job. Thought this was neat. I love your old english style.
Casey Overbeek12/13/04
Kenny, there is something special about reading poetry in the old english. I love it

For someone who SUPPOSEDLY can't pen poetry, you're a force to be reckoned with. I'd be scared to go head-to-head writing poetry against you... and poetry is SUPPOSEDLY my specialty. This is the work of a genius! You really, really ought to try your hand at it a lot more often. I think you'd really surprise yourself! In fact, I had to share your Amazon poem. I just couldn't get over how you turned something so cute into a literal work of art. You're blessed, Brother. Run with it!!!!
Monique Fox12/14/04

I've read all three poems, Kenny. You've been holding out on us -- three hits in a row can't be a fluke. Your humor couched in this style is fantastic. Joyce is right, Brother: just keep it coming!
Debbie OConnor12/14/04
This is great fun. I even like it better than the amazon!
Delores McCarter12/14/04
You are so good, its a little bit intimidating! (smile) Its great to see so much talent on this site. Reading poems like this one, shows me that I still have a loooooooog way to go. Thanks for sharing another lovely piece with us.
Deborah Anderson12/14/04
I thought you did good, Kenny. I most definitely chuckled at your last stanza. God bless you.
Mitzi Busby12/14/04
Enjoyable read. Thanks for sharing it.
chris smith12/14/04
Cool poem! I think every writer can relate to this one!
Linda Germain 12/15/04
"Can't pen poetry" ? Oh puleeezze, dear Bro!! You make more sense than Wm.S.
If FW ever publishes a whole book of poetry, I expect to see your name all over the place. Really K, you know what you are doing...good job. :0)
