If We Stay

Over there by the corner of green and grey, We'll meet love again, We'll never have to witness the pain of goodbyes and tears, Nor take a share in the broken armors of fallen hearts, We'll just take a jump and delight with these fragile...

The Panther

The Panther (subtitled: In Jardin des Plantes, Paris) is a poem by Rainer Maria Rilke written on 6 November 1902. It describes a captured panther behind bars, as it was exhibited in the Jardin des Plantes in Paris. It is one of Rilke's most famous...

All that you see, is all that I am

The wind blows through the tress  Whispering an untold secret  Between mother nature and her children  "I am dying," she says, I’ve given  Everything and still the humans  Demand more from me  I am old and my womb barren  All that you see is all that...

I used to be

I used to hide my words  Never speaking out  Never drawing a crowd  Now I find myself talking  A lot more than the past  I don’t have my status  As a lone wolf  I’ve been interrogated  Into the pack  Of everyday socialist  What happened to me ...

Memories

Memories dance around like  A roaring flame illuminating   The night in their misery  Casting a ghostly hue   Sending me running in fright  Unable to show my face I  Hide away from sight  I'm a coward who   Can't put up a fight  Settling for a life of...

Paper towns

A day has been known to last a thousand years Maybe all the strings inside him broke Maybe she loved mysteries so much she became one Maybe this time she wanted to be found Maybe she had chosen me again Till dawn do us part. “I’m not pretty – not...

Only Memories

As I lay here in the dark, between these prison walls I would think about you, and my tears would fall You were the sun that shines, an encouraging thought wish I could have been there with you while the Cancer you fought You prayed over each one,...

You need to remember

You need to remember  That someone cares for you  That summer follows winter  And life can be renewed  You need to remember  That sunshine follows rain  That tears are prayers for laughter  And life can come again  You need...

Imprisoned by guilt

I can't seem to find the words to say just how I feel The pain is ever growing since they put you on that hill   I stop by to say I miss you almost every day I pray that God above will soon take this hurt away   I can...

A paper soul

A paper soul An empty hole Left out in the pouring rain Now soaked These bitter feelings of regret These painful feelings of neglect And still I’m crawling Through the shades Of empty corridors of memories Reminiscing all the times No tears to cry...

I am sorry

Streams of apologies  Runs through my heart  The tears of regret  Are wetting my face  Bitterness fills my plate  Guilt makes my heart break  Because I am wrong  Humble are my words  I'm a humble woman My heart has cried  One hundred times  Forgive me...

Alone in my head

Alone in my head, I'm feeling so low, You wont understand, No one can know. My eyes are so tired,  I can't sleep at night, Your face haunts my dreams, When I turn out the light. It happened so suddenly,  It happened so fast, I knew all at once, ...

Escaping Reality

Leaving the very spot I am Leaving behind myself Leaving behind my troubles Running away or leaving… There's no difference Escaping from life itself Though be it temporary it's enough For a break I'm in desperate need of A short break or long break...

The Things We Hide

We struggle to have meaning in this world which we all know we try but yet we wonder where we all should go hidden in the questions which we can not find the answers are all hidden deep inside our minds hidden in our soul is the life we try to hide...

Remember Me

If I were to leave this world today I'd want to be remembered it's true, for going that extra mile just to show my love for you. I'd want for you to be proud of me and know I always tried, when you hurt I did too, your tears I also cried. I'd want you...

Starting Over

I'm trying to find something to base my life upon, Something in this strange world that goes on and on. As the years go by and time fades away, What used to be "good days" are now filled with dismay. Tomorrow comes, and then again, it goes, And...

Please hear what I'm not saying

                 Don't be fooled by me.                Don't be fooled by the face I wear                for I wear a mask, a thousand masks,                masks that I'm afraid to take off,                and none of them is me.  ...

Mask

I was once sad and lonely, Having nobody to comfort me, So I wore a mask that always smiled; To hide my feelings behind a lie.   Before long, I had many friends; With my mask, I was one of them. But deep inside, I still felt...
