    ALONE I can walk alone And often do For the

    path I take Goes with me too I can work alone And think it is fun To start a task And see it done I can sleep alone For once I'm there My dreams will take Me everywhere I can stand alone And face the fight I will not run If I know I'm right But love alone I can not do There...

    A soul wandering searching in the dark for

    strength and warmth for comfort and trust A hand protecting reaching in the dark to guide and sooth to nurture and heal A safe haven awaits where love and care will reignite your inner fire

    Not going to say any name,

    as you know who you are You are the person that talks with me, and hails from very far You were one of the very first people, that I met here when I was new Several accounts later, I'm thankful to still be talking with you At first I was quite stubborn, and sometimes even rude...

    Dancing In The Rains Of Chance

    As I lay back down to sleep to dream of nature's virtue, sweet to dream of her within my mind, to dream of once upon a time to dream the dream of happy ever afters to dream once more of nature's laughter to know it teases, taunting, pleasing and in it's recourse I lay...

    The Hello To My Good-bye The world,

    so beautiful yet so cruel, so peaceful but full of raging wars. Every smile is led by a frown. In the darkness I see it. I see the peace. But when night turns to day. I’m just another person born upon a grave. Are we not all bid a due with the warm welcome of hello when we...

    Motions

    Postcards from Italy.

    Where did you go? I felt you

    once before, And I fear you'll go again, Where did you go? Why am I not happy? I thought I would be, But all I want to do is cry, Why am I not happy? If all is lost, And all is gone, If all is pain, Why do you cause me to smile? Where have you gone? Didn't you realize, It was...

    A grey day on the dunes sees the long grass

    Her Death Brought Her Life

    She cries each night,Never does she show her pain,Always hiding her face,How long can she stay strong?How many more days must she play along,Raw emotion in her eyes,Fear crawling up her spine as she wipes the tears,Looking down at her scars,Looking at her reflection as she hides...

    Broken pieces, shattered all around We heard the sound, when it all hit the ground Torn pages, in the book of my life In the pain and strife, seems like a losing fight Empty spaces, covered in clutter My heart skips paces, and my words come in stutters I see the places, where the...

    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...

    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...

    weeping as I watch us fall like raindrops whilst holding the knowledge of those before that fell through misty eyes. It never stops. There will come a time when the last drop falls, And I will realise my greatest fear. With arms wide open I'll join this ocean, hoping that you're...

    I write poetry when I am feeling lonely.

    Sadness powers up my writing skill so much. I never really write it down and save it. I just start writing and express what I feel. I once showed it to a friend. And she was really impressed by it.

    Long Distance Love

    Miles of empty air between us, We still manage to love. Through time and space, The affection finds its way. Words cannot take the place Of physical contact. But somehow, Love finds a way.

    Swirls... You leave playful little circles on

    my spine, and my body curls. With deliberate strokes, your adoration for me unfurls. In the dimness, the beads of sweat lay like melted pearls. When goodbyes are said at twilight, reality itself, at our consciousness, hurls.
