    I Told You.

    On this cliff’s edge I stand to my pledge Here among the rocks and grass I await time to pass I told you I’d be here In our place with nothing to fear. I’ve stood here since you went away, I shouted after you that I’d stay. You said what we had was through And I said...

    Death Of Her Love

    Your silence tells me all i need to hear. There's no chance, you'll ever want me near. Even tho i now face my worst fear, i refuse to shed a single tear. I know we were destined to be mates, but i also know its far too late. I destroyed the door and locked the gate, now eternal...

    They Turned Us Away

    Sort of Sad

    Roses are red - violets are blue and I feel sad because rhyming poetry is all that I can do. Cheers!

    This Is One Of Many I Have Written During My Dark Times

    I have been writing poetry for years and I am on many poetry sites.  Here's an example of one for you: More than the introspective reflection of the tear as perceived by another pair of eyes Beyond what can be extrinsically manifested into the dimensions of the...

    The Cryer's Prayer

    Feel like crying. As if my tears and pity would be The closest intimate companion I’ve ever had. Travelling down my cheeks soaking my pillow Blowing my noise Mediating Praying Oh Father please Hear my cry Forgive my sins Provide comfort and healing Direction and blessings Amen

    Poem Title: the Smallest Key to the Darkest Cell

    Let It Out!

    Since i don't really have anyone i cant freely open up to, i only write poetry when im sad/depressed. And it does help a lot. It's a good way to let all my emotions out. (:

    Not Yet.

    Come on baby, give me one last dance tonight, I don’t want to meet the darkness behind the light. Not yet. Come on baby, close your eyes and say my name, I cant bear to meet you with this shame. Not yet. Come on baby, kiss me one last time, I can't confess to our crime...

    ‘Loss’

    I don’t know who I am here I’m scared I don’t recognise people People and their ways are strangers Where am I? Who was I? Did anyone ever like or love me? Beyond this sorrow I have never conceived was possible I hold up my hands To the pointed gun And admit I am totally...

    A Lot Of It

    The abyss calls Seductively beckoning, To be satisfied, Fulfilled, I edge closer. The precipice Of Life and Death Either way I go, Or fall, I’m screwed In Life, pain Stabbing at my heart Ripping at my unsound mind Insanity Becomes reality In Death, release But potential...

    A letter to myself. I hate you.

    I thought you were better. 3 years of lying. Saying life was better. All the while, In denial. Stopping medication. "Clarity." Moving across the country. "Solidarity." Losing jobs... Wrecking relationships. Burning bridges. No doctor visits. New relationship... New requirements...

    Nothing

    Nothing is important. Not your tears. Not your love. Nothing matters. Nothing at all. It dosent matter, if you are bleeding. Not even if you are deing. No one really cares. In a 100 years no one will remeber your name. Why even try? When you know that you are nothing. How can...

    ‘Regret’

    The cars they howl and the trucks they whistle As they pass my window That is half open I can’t see outside but I know what’s there The cool frosting air It reflects an image to my mind Of the stars way up high The bank of the motorway is lined with litter Blown about by...
