Without A Trace

Could I have a moment of your time? It won't take long, I promise, The question is fresh on my mind And I'd love it if you would be honest.   The space between the mind and heart Doesn't seem to be that much space - But love can cause all wisdom to depart As … Continue reading Without A Trace

Memories

Yes, I took my time moving on, Telling everyone I was taking it slow - Countless boxes piled high, Scared of what I'd find inside.   Memories buried in the dark - Hoping they stay where they're parked, God, don't let them rush into my mind - I want to leave all that far behind. … Continue reading Memories

Rest Of Forever

The sound of the clock in that quiet room, How it resonated against those lonely walls. Oh, How the ending that I felt coming did loom - No matter how loud my heartbeat would call…   Wanting, wishing, hoping for us to last forever - Some way to keep promises that we both made. The bonds … Continue reading Rest Of Forever

My Looking Glass

Though my eyes need glasses to help me see, To take in all of the beauty of the world - They also allow me to see the horrors and pain, The price of hate and violence unfurled.   We are so much better than agony and killing. We are human beings, our lives already fleeting … Continue reading My Looking Glass

Flaws

Alive  for so long now, Not who I was but still the same. Many mistakes somehow allow - Flaws to take the ultimate blame.   Told I'm not as good as I think I am, The reality is I never thought I was. Naïve and trusting, I've been scammed; Failures cause me to take pause. … Continue reading Flaws

Truth about Domestic Violence

A little over a week ago, I woke up and sat at my computer as I normally do. After my morning Dr. Pepper, which serves as my coffee, and wiping the sleep out of my eyes, I booted up my computer and headed to FaceBook to see what was going on. I thought, for a moment, … Continue reading Truth about Domestic Violence

The Graveyard

Good morning, everyone! Normally, after I've finished creating a piece of poetry, I'll post it up here for you to read without anything said beforehand. Not so much today. I wanted to throw you guys out some warnings. This particular post is in response to the #DearDepression tag that was written to encourage awareness for … Continue reading The Graveyard

I Go Back

Music tickles my ear Gentle like a soft feather Memories start to appear All my years, coming together.   Life so long ago, lost to the wind Trying to hold on to sixteen. Time has other plans as it sends Me to scene after scene.   Heartache after my first loss. Wind in my hair, … Continue reading I Go Back
