    Fall

    I wrote this a few years back and just found it the other day. The wind made the tree dance. Green leaves swayed in the air, Sun shinning high over the deep grass Grass that only a rainy spring could color. Two lovers walk hand and hand across an old bridge Kissing softly to...

    Fake Smiles

    Fake Smiles Aug 13 2012 And sometimes you were there for me And other days I'd wish you'd leave And when at night I'd go to bed I'd be confused and wish you dead I'd feel it was all my fault I'd feel I was very small I'd feel that I could not sleep No privacy was mine to...

    Waves of Time

    Days pass by as the tide of the ocean rises and recedes. As normal as it may seem, look deep within the ripples that shater ones life. Only when the waters of ones concious is like glass, clear thought will be enlightened to ones eyes.

    Hatred Friend

    Your lies are tearing me apart, its clear that you have no heart. Care for no one, hurt everyone, the smile upon your face is pure hatred, aimed at me as I'm the fool, whom forgives the betrayer all the time. Five times the silly girl I am, was lead to believe I was your friend...

    I'm Sorry Friend-poem

    As I watch my tears run down my cheeks I stop and whisper, Why couldn't I just have said I miss you? Why did I have to go and wreck it all again, Why couldn't I just let myself be happy? Why can't I smile and just keep smiling? Why do I have to wait till the tears stream. I wish...

    I'm Here Yet I'm Not - Poem By A 13 Yr Old

    With every breath I take I must hold my voice back, with every laugh steals my soul. With every shout cracks my heart. It takes my darken hope to break me free, from the chains that hold me down on this plane to dispair. With every hug I must remind myself not to scream. Even...

    Sudden Loss of Meaning

    I have no role to play, I have no centre, I can't help dark thoughts, I am my own mentor, There is no where to belong, I have to be oh so strong, I no longer search for meanings, Just a face in a nameless throng, I move without aim from city to city, The prospects bleak...

    The Beautiful Lies

    Lies is what you give, lies is what I seek. Still the heart yearns, a word or two linger through the night and start to reek. Heavy, as laden nimbus, the silence prevails occasionally broken by the questioning eyes. You know you’re lost, I know I’m lost too, abandoned is the...
