You Are Brave.

When people hear the word brave, they think, “Soldier.” Often, you see others commending soldiers for their prowess, telling them how strong they are, and who can disagree? To put your life on the line to protect your country is pretty brave. Though I must say, I am not a fan of war, I see…

Solace

“I sat there in my room, wondering where I went wrong in life; wondering why these things happen to me, and if it had all been my fault. I could hardly find the strength to pray, and so, had decided to play some music to distract myself from the darkness of my mind. Listening attentively…

Old Flames – A Poem

Sorrow trapped me in his gaze Set my stone cold heart ablaze  Watched me keenly as I wept All my secrets, sorrow kept   Lonely held me close at night Cruel lover, my heart’s plight Loved him, for when none could see He’d kiss me ever so sweetly   Many fine lovers I have has…

To New Beginnings

One of the hardest things for me to do is to let go, yet time and time again, I find myself having to start over, because I am never satisfied with my relationships. There is always a fault – always something that is not quite right. Of course, I see my own faults, and recognize…

The Colour Fades…

The colour in your eyes fades Day by day, our love decays…                    

Oblivion

Eyes glued to the TV screen Oblivious to the evil it bleeds Fed lies subliminally The truth, they never find Minds change unknowingly To suit that which is deemed right By the man who placed himself upon a throne And called himself, “God” Yet no worthy is he of praise, for he is but a…

Skeletons in My Closet

These skeletons I hide in this closet of mine haunt me day and night. I fear the day they reveal themselves, and I, left to face my critics, crumble in shame. Could it be said that I know no better? If not, what other excuse could I use? Anything would be better than finding someone…

Time Stands Still…

“It seems I’ve lost my sense of time, walking down this lonely path. To withdraw from a crowd, surely it seems impolite, but more so, in the sound of the moving water, or the gently blowing wind, I delight. Now, must it always be a choice? Some days, I crave a good conversation. Other days,…

Art: Escaping Superficiality

A book allows you to say everything, or almost everything you want to say. A poem allows you to say all you need to say in but a few words. Evidently, writing helps to get a message across, regardless of which method you choose to use. But what I love most about writing is the…

Bliss – A Poem

At night, I hear a whisper in my ear A voice that could calm a roaring sea My only true love calls me Alone with my thoughts, I fear the worst Say, am blessed, or am I cursed? To be alive is to be in agony Yet to be dead, a tragedy My love, He…

Distance

I can feel the distance growing between us, and as harrowing as loneliness can be, I’d rather be close to You in solitude than to be torn from You by world. This I fear, yet day after day, I see the very thing unfolding. I feel myself sinking, drowning in my own despair. But no…
