    The Ultimate Gift

    My stepson arrived whilst we were away, Oblivious was I on that wonderful day. My husband, he knew, his child would be born, Between son and his wife, emotions were torn. I never found out until much later on, For a whole ten months, the prize I had won. The confession it came...

    As I lay here & think,

    My head feels in sync With what you ask? Oh, nothing. Just a dream. Of actually feeling. A dream of really living. Where I don't have scars & where no ones ever hurt me. That, Is what I think.

    Ghost

    I live in a car that's been burned out for years. The guy that was driving, His bones are still here. I was with him when it happened. We were both drinking beer. We went off a cliff. The fire burned up our tears. I am waiting for judgment. My soul shakes with fear. This life...

    Whirlwind:- The storm imploded upon itself,

    and at the centre the power of its wealth. The force of it all is enough to kill, but from somewhere the boy found his will. I was protected by a shaft of light, that called my name and restored my sight. Now I seek storms and look for the lost, I show them the light whatever...

    Love doesn't love the young We grow with it,

    yet we never truly know it. We seek it yet fated are we to be wounded by it. In our years of awareness... the rarest sweet gem of adolescence beyond childish ignorance and growing into being we must tread it nigh fearful. Why sweet treacherous love are you this way? I cherish...

    An ocean of memories of you to whom of

    which i have no recollection. Who are you and who am i? Blind like a child in a dark room crawling towards a life unknown Tenderness more scarce than Lust In cities of Steel ,devoid of trust we travel between now ,before and then until it is time to repeat again.

    Will He Be My Reality?

    Lost without a smile, Tears that flowed with the wind, Each night and day, I close my eyes and dream of hope, The shattered emptiness crushed my soul. The cracks in my fragile heart slowly slipped away, I look to the sky as my wrists cry, I find hope in the darkness, The...

    Life is Fragile An unusual occurrence in a

    familiar place is similar to an uneventful moment in a strange place. It’s like the lyric of a song without its music, or vice versa. The emotions experienced in such a moment must be what a man-or woman feels when he or she loses a loved one—to death. Death is different...

    Bout Of Darkness

    We can't forget our past no matter how hard we try. But the tears we cry ,can wash away the demons inside. It doesn't take much for our past to return. A sound or a song, and those memories burn. I wish we could forget the thoughts that haunt our soul. So we could look forward...
