He whispered into his paper, that if Eyes were the windows to the soul then Light danced off her gaily colored panes and Illuminated the shadows of her countenance. That the most dulcet of roses Gossamer petals dripping with beauty Would... (more »)
Ashes

Oh, see ashes, ashes we all fall down, Those saddened tears dripping from toe to crown, A heart of magnificent dreams we seek, The danger of giving up, makes us weak. So we slowly ring around the rosie, With our pockets full of deadly... (more »)

There was a wild sunrise, the day she let it burn- She'd watch destruction, like some people watch TV- and now, her turn- such strange, such sad, sad stories are nestled in the trees- she wanted to be a leaf, and so she sat there on her knees... (more »)
Something Only Ceilings Can Hear
By , Moultrie, GA
Among us, desolate mirrors and an acknowledging greyness of cloudy haze, crystal balls we look into and can't decipher, or rather, choose not to mention now. This shimmering sawdust, again forgets how to become human. This soft laugh loses... (more »)

You hear the voices all day long But they're only in your head They only sing one horrid song The one that you will dread   As you walk through the hall You only have one friend Then all at once there is a lull As you go around... (more »)

I looked upon the brilliant mounds of white, Whose slopes and peaks tower’d into space so high, And blankets cover lands so still and bright, Where no one thrives or even passes by. The sun, it shines upon these frozen hills, But in this... (more »)

I can force a laughter. I can fake a smile. I can hold it all together. Even for more than a while.   I can pretend and play the part. Silently screaming inside. Hiding the pain in my heart. So the worry won't occur your mind.... (more »)

A Great Loss
Custom User Avatar
There she sits in her room. No one cares to ask what's wrong. All by herself diving in the gloom. Wondering why it's taken so long. Her mom should show up with a balloon.   Barely seven years old. She felt something's not... (more »)

Lost Last
To my friend’s funeral, I never went. But sometimes I like to sit back and think, He will never get the letter I sent, He will never see how tears bled the ink.   Now, never will he smile or write again Now, never will he... (more »)

Life without him… Are like breeze flowing on and on, Flowing through obstacles, With a deepened sigh And a determination of never knowing its end.   Life without him… Are like days passing by, like the ocean waves. Staring... (more »)

Where Parallel Lines Meet

We used to be two parallel lines who were fated not to meet,         traveling in straight paths alongside one another, not to meet.   We would travel in the same direction and at the same speed, but distance was always... (more »)
