    The Mask

    I’m great, fine, spectacular. In a way I relish every night, and I live every day. I live, I laugh, I write, I sing, I wonder what the new days will bring. Then I get home, and I take off the mask. The day, an almost impossible task, Is finally over, and so I lay Down, and wait...

    Real Pain

    You are lost In faded colours of Summer's smile Memory. The world we had now locks me out I tear and strain in desperate style You drift away, I scream and shout My blood dries in the vein True love just means real pain. You are lost Until moonbeams send you from the skies To cut...

    Your Mistake You called me a mistake You said

    it to my face I wont let you see these tears That i cry everyday You destroy my confidence You shout at me You tell me you don't love me You constantly make me weak You break me everyday Whe you lie to my face I try to tell myself to be strong But the pain wont go away

    Lonely girl at a table with an empty

    A MOTHER A mother is a mixture of

    so many things. A protector, a mentor and friend. She gives you guidance till you know your way, And nurtures from beginning to end. She provides you with meals from your very first bite, And feeds you till you’re on your own. She teaches you values like honesty and trust...

    AN OLD MAN’S FLAG (c) 2015 by Edward York.

    The old man sat on his porch each day, As he rocked away in his chair. And the flag that he always proudly flew, Was waving ripples in the air. The flag he flew was ragged now, Having used it through the years, It held some memories from his past, And even held some tears...

    Running wild, Running free.

    I can't breathe, I can't see. Speaking fierce, Speaking loud. This fire's burning, It's burning proud. No rules to follow anymore: No cares, No nothing. It doesn't matter- I have my freedom. I don't even need to rhyme. (All of the...

    She Lies Easy

    Not Afraid.

    Do not be afraid of life,the pain,the peril and the strife.Do not shrink with fear and dread from the things that lie ahead. Do not be afraid to try-for no goal can be too high.You may fail but don't complain,you can always try again. Do not be afraid to speak,to adventure and to...

    The Hello To My Good-bye The world,

    Threads Of Ourselves

    The feelings we share I ride like a wave, The ups the downs the direction they make, On a magic carpet that we made, From threads of ourselves,and the pattern we laid the vessel counts as much as the map, The carriage awaits for us to step up, I admit Its scary as it might...

    Pain In These Eyes

    When you look into someone's eyes, you can see everything. You see emotions and their journey. Their heartbreaks and their fears. Their memories, maybe even eternity. Now, look into my eyes, And tell me what you see. Can you see the darkness, That lives deep within me? Can you...
