"The heart has its reasons which reason does not know." -Pascal, Pensees, 1670


The rain washes my fears away,
As the raindrops wash the window's grief.
When you're not there to hold me,
As distance stands aloft,
I gaze out at the gray skies,
And douse my sorrows with the rain.

Your sweatshirt I conned.
The amused smile on your face,
As I wondered over its perfume.
Because I craved the smell of you.
Now it covers my body,
Shielding me from the cold.
When your protection is not here to take
The chill from my bones.

I'm lulled by the beating drums
Of the window's pane.
My heart in sync
To the fall of your chest's rise.
I think of yesterday
When I wanted only to be where I am
Today.

Fiction's not much different from Reality, sometimes people just forget to look for the magic in their own lives

I have to say, I've looked a some of your works. And I have to say...awesome. I just have to say your poems flow well and I like your choice of words. And since I looked at more than one, I see you're very versatile since each piece of writing is very unique in its style. Keep writing! I don't know if I have any criticism because I'm just really liking your poems. I know this was all just compliments, but I'll probably write some proper critiques when I have time and look through your other poems.
