    This is not about anyone here.

    I wrote this when I was 26. TELLIN' ME LIES Tell me lies. Such little white lies. To you, I may be, Just another, One-of-the-boys. But you should know. I'm old enough, To get wise. Tellin' me lies. Tellin' me little white lies. Tell me, What I see, In your eyes...

    We All Have Our Demons

    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...

    The Void Miles apart,

    10 feet away,I’ve lost the strength or will to say.The trail was once was so full and bright.I fall asleep this lonely night. Youthful days when I was me,Of sunny days when I was free.Remind me of the life yet known,Among them all,  I feel alone. When I was...

    The fragments of my mind can't seem to grasp

    what and why you would cast some thing of such beauty and power aside.....like waves rolling into tides.... tearing down.... breaking .....apart.... lost then found like heaven and hell....rolled into one.....

    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...

    My Garden

    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...

    A CHILD'S GRIP There is a child's fist,

    Inside of me. Clutching tight to what my dad said, When I was three. I remember that night, My mom walked out the door. To leave my dad for good, And forevermore. I was very sad, That she was gone. My dad turned to me, And said "Son, You're a big boy now, And big boys don...

    Fellow poets will get this: I hate it

    when someone looks at a depressing piece of poetry and are like: 'are you okay? You sound really sad...' It takes all of my restraint not to stab them with a pen (sorry inside joke just had to put that) because I have gone through stuff like that and I just need a way to express...

    I love sunrise... It's not

    because of the golden hue or soothing warmth that touches us, I love the sun because it shines of your hair as you sleep. You are angelic in that light... I am thankful that each morning I awake to that sight. I love being caught in the rain... It's not because of it...

    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...

    CASTLE OF PAIN Fear was my counselor,

    My closest companion. Love was like the dawn, Sweeping over the horizon. But I hid from it's light, Deep within the dungeon of myself. Strength in my loneliness, Was what I counted as my wealth. I built the walls, To keep the hurt outside. I knew the truth, But when I spoke I...

    Bout Of Darkness

    Another poem from my youth.

    DENIAL OF LOVE Cupid's bow twangs, Broken arrows, On my heart. Lovely little sparrows, Ripped apart. I am dying. But have no fear. I am crying. But shed not a tear. I am trying. But it's not too clear. I am lying. When I look in the mirror. Death rides my soul. Look into...

    Dancing the Pain Away She smiled

    as he walked away, For there was nothing left to say. The words they once exchanged, Were simply rearranged. She began not caring anymore, As she danced alone on the floor. The music that filled her head, Erased the lies that were said. As she danced around the room, The scent...

    An ocean of memories of you to whom of
