    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...

    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...

    FOR OLD MEN AT THE CHESS TABLE They banned me

    from the park I fed pigeons at every morning. I was too emotionally attached to things that leave with the seasons. They say my rain clouds over-watered the plants and killed them. More time in bed, I thought, but I'm always looking for a reason. So I gave my bread money to the...

    "You know I'm young,

    but you don't know that I'm wise. If you ever listened to me, you'd see through my eyes. If you didn't judge my history, I wouldn't have to be in disguise. If you let me finish my sentence, you would see that this monster has a beautiful heart inside." -Beautiful Monster...

    He sees her pain from the dark Vail he calls

    home. Knowing what will come if he makes contact. Yet he must see her talk to her, feel her. His heart heavy as he watches her from the shadows. He slips in selfishly only to disappear again. Only because he knows the destructive world he lives in and the creatures within it. He...

    Mosaic

    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...

    I am plain in every way,

    I spend every day awaiting the pain to go away. This came just out of NOWHERE in my mind. No idea why. Was just going to post to "I am not creative" and that pops out. It's how I feel about myself. I am completely plain in every way. My appearance is plain, I have no skills...

    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.

    and if we only have tonight,

    would you hold me tight? would you kiss me softly? and tell me you love me? if we only have right now, will you slowly take away my pain? would you show me all I needed to see? would you make me happy?

    TRUTH Most lives are full of struggles As we

    begin each day; We can only hope the path we found Is the one where we should stay. You can’t always judge the path, Simply by its looks. And you can never gain wisdom, Just by what you read in books. So be grateful for experience, Whether good or bad. For we can learn...

    Ehh.. Poems are such a vaguely exact medium of
