    My Story. Opening The Tabs Of My Mind.

    My story. Opening the tabs of my mind. The child survives the monster, the pump house, the closet, the bathtub, the screaming, the fear, the fear, the fear. Be still. Be very quiet....disappear. You don't have to hurt. You can watch from afar. The darkness is my peace. The...

    It was a spark remaining scarlet And through

    the ties and the spikes Now it's a trail, where people ride bikes Those tracks through the woods, where we used to play Those trains that rolled by there, all night and all day We'd catch some crawdads, and throw rocks at the trains As we got older, we played older games We...

    Our hope becomes our weapon But

    when will this war finally end The suffering in the eyes Tell the truth of a thousand lies We dissolve into nothing During this painfully quiet night Slowly forgetting ourselves Slowly forgetting each other

    To Nervous To Share Poetry

    Writing Isn't Easy...

    I like to write poetry and read others as well. It is kool to see how others write, what they are feeling and thinking during certain times. I know my poems reflect experiences I have gone through. Altho, I do not write on a regular basis. I have to be in a certain mood to write...

    An Image Of Me

    No Beginning nor end, in the image of my Father from whence I came. The immeasurable vastness of my souls abyss you could not begin to fathom. So far past the depths of sorrow even the Angels weep for hope. The light at the other end is an illusion behind me. This is my Despair.

    What Lurkes In The Shadow Before Me?

    Personal Versus Others

    I have always loved poetry since I first learned about it in school as a child. As I got older I would chicken scratch my own versions in a notebook. When I was first moved out on my own as an adult I came across all those poems. I copied them all down in a bigger notebook that I...
