    Rest if you must. Sleep if you can. Lay your pretty face Upon my hand. Steal those baby blues And close them tight. It’s time to surrender To yourself tonight. I don’t need you naked, In leather or lace. I want to see harmony And a smile on your face. On your soft, sweet...

    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...

    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...

    What Lurkes In The Shadow Before Me?

    An impossible question to answer in truth..My shadow precedes me as to lead me in the wrong direction. When I close my eyes it steps inside of me to ensure that I am there and kept. And so I remain the only light that emits a faint glow that is of me thus creating the shadow...

    To Nervous To Share Poetry

    I know that may sound stupid or something, but I am really to nervous to share any of the poetry I have ever wrote. I think it is because I don't ant negative feedback from anyone, or that I don't want anyone to see that my poetry is not as good as I want it to be. It is the same...

    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...

    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.
