    He Reminded Me Of Me

    I wrote this one recently. It is the first poem I have finished in a few months. He Reminded Me of Me Written by, err... Me. :) I saw a boy of five today Who reminded me of me And though time passes in a blink The boy did not yet see And his mind was filled with wonder. He...

    Convenient I guess it's convenient you can

    Life's just not fair I've come to learn/ The

    past is the past can't have it back I rather that/ Though I can't help but wish I could change things with my words/ I keep it all in tact for though these loving emotions I currently lack/ I make up for it by being optimistic/ I know it will all come back soon/ I'm just here...

    I Met Myself On The Street Today

    I met myself on the street today, I was looking rather pale. My eyes were red, my hair unwashed, I didn't look too well. I tried to find the courage, To ask me what was wrong. I've known myself for quite some time now, We used to get along. He looked at me with anger, I've never...

    Disappearing into the back of the crowd.

    My lips are sealed, But my thoughts are loud. Replays of memories going on inside my head, As I write out my sadness through this led. I'm happier nowadays, But I don't forget the nights where I didn't even know if I'd get fed.. Praying to this sky, hoping someone's listening...

    Lonely Tree

    Sometimes I wished I'd have toys, other years games. But I don't really remember when, I wished for a woman in my bed. Maybe when I was ringing groceries, into a laser eyed counter. Maybe the first time my car got stuck in a snowy patch in winter. But I remember the boughs of...
