    I just want to live “I don’t want to

    scream, I don’t want to lie, I just want to have a normal life. With friends and folly, balanced in time, I just want to have a normal life. Why can’t I stop this searing pain? Why can’t I be secure and laugh again? Why have I stopped to live at all, when for me it always...

    A poem written each day,

    Revealing you can say, What has crossed your mind, Helped your passions to unwind, Kept you awake at night With the thoughts of a delight, Dreams in the hanging tree: You sample so many experiences of life On that journey to become someone 's wife.

    Sometimes It's Sad Inspiration

    Not every inspiration is a good one...I was inspired to write something after I miscarried my baby earlier this month. This may not look like poetry to you, but the way it flows is poetry to me.   We never knew you, and I guess we never will...my little Jessica...
