    I love writing poetry,

    whether it's in paper or in my head. Often I write whole poems based on one phrase that I heard or thought of that just struck me as beautiful and poetic.

    Dancing on Edges of Romance Soft slow steps,

    Dancing steps, Dancing slowly, As we both waltz Across a floor, A wooden floor, A polished oak floor Streaked with rays of sunlight As golden sunbeams flow Through the open windows Of an old dance hall Feel your hand in mine, Skin against soft bare skin, Our Palms...

    It won't take a day to find Him,

    maybe not even a week But it will take all I got if He is the One I seek For on my way to Him, I thought I was already saved But I watched my faith stumble and patience start to fade It isn't easy to follow Him, that He'll guarantee But He paid the high price all to set us free...

    for a while. I dont claim to be good. But you give me a new reason, make me feel like i could. I haven't liked someone this much in so long, You take my breathe away, Make me feel so strong. I love your eyes, your soothing smile, I love your hair, The way you make me feel...

    A Song For Spring Cold air recedes,

    Snow drifts melt as A warm breeze blows, Winter lessens Plants waken now From under ground Poking up first To take a look, And then reaching Push up out of earth, The earth that surrounds them, Reaching up to the sun Waking up from winter And a long cold season sleep Ground...

    Fears For A Wasted Life

    My heart has been broke My memories are

    painful ones I feel my soul flying away As I fight for it to stay God have mercy on my soul And make us one again For I know I'm losing faith In this world full of hate A world that tortures and causes nothing but pain, I try to stay strong but I'm becoming weak, I weep in...

    And that's the thing about internal pain.

    No amount of food, water, medicine, or ice can quench it. It takes and takes from you until there's nothing more left to take
