One Day (Poem)

I’ve been thinking of you a lot recently, Thinking of the times we had together, Remembering how we used to laugh, Remembering how we used to cry.   You made me better, You made me whole, I helped you see who you truly are, And you soared higher than I could follow.   All these…

Closing the Door [poem]

When you close the door on the past, You move forward to the future, You never know how long the peace will last, Closing the door is hard, Letting go of what you thought was your true path, Part of that path will always linger, Wondering what could have been, But the future isn’t set,…

Soaring through the Astral Plane [Poem]

Floating through the astral plane, Fleeting thoughts run through my mind, The freeing feeling lets me forget my pain, Letting me leave my past behind. Soaring over the landscape below, Rushing towards the horizon ahead, I can see the face of the one I know, Sitting bolt upright in bed, I now know where I…

What is Love?

Love is caring, Love is talking, Love is loss, Love is kind, Love is unyielding, Love is constant, Love is a promise, Love never leaves you, Love touches your soul, But most of all, Love makes life worth living, And Love is pain, Love lets you know that you are alive.

Sneaking Through The Darkness [Poem]

The darkness spreads across the land, Creeping and covering all that it encounters, All that is keeping me safe is the match in my hand, The traps ahead are going to be hard to counter. Sneaking through the darkness, Marking my movements against the memory of this place, Making my way through the rubble and…

The Space Between Us.

The images your memory conjures no longer causes pain, The memory of you lingers in my heart, I will always hold you close, I will never truly let you go, But you no longer haunt my soul, You live within me, Giving me strength, Giving me power, Together in memory, There is nothing we can’t…

Missing from my core. [Poem]

There is an emptiness in my soul, There is a pain I haven’t felt before, A cavity that cannot be filled, How do I get over the loss? Where do I go from here? How can I wait for the time, The time that it will come back into my life? I cannot bear this…

Better to Live Heartbroken than Heartless (poem)[I think]

Things have changed, My life is different, You are the reason I stayed the course, I will never forget the impact you made in my life, You were my first true love, The memories we made still make me smile, It has taken a long time, But those memories no longer break my heart, I…

Trick or Treat 

Pumpkin lanterns and trick or treat, Small children wandering round the streets, Wearing costumes Cute and Scary, Running from parents trying to be wary, For kids in costumes are all that’s on the prowl, Ghosts and Goblins are out on the town, Trying to steal the innocent and take them away, The monsters lurk in…

Thinking By The Fire.

Its that time of the year, The time for remembering, The time for celebrating, The time to remember the love we once had, The time to remember the love that is still there, We were meant to be together, It’s truly what I believe, I knew this the day that we met, I should have…

Where am I going? 

I don’t know where I’m going, I don’t know where I’ve been, There is a freedom in not knowing, But it’s murky with the past unseen, I could be heading for trouble, I could he heading for glory, Will I emerge from beneath the rubble? Well, that’s another story.

Dead End

It was a dark time, Life was overwhelming, There was nothing to keep going for, There was nothing but darkness, The light had faded from life, There was a void in my soul filled with nothing but strife, The job was sucking the life out of me, I couldn’t take much more, Everything was at…

We are our stories

Everyone has a story to tell, Some are epic some are simple, We all want our story to be known, Even if it’s just to those we love, Most keep them to themselves, Others shout it from the rooftops, No matter how you handle your story, It’s personal to you, Some won’t care, Some will…

The Destroyer of Families 

Everyone thinks it will be fun, Every holiday someone has the bright idea, “What’s the worst that could happen?” they think, Little do the know what’s coming, The destroyer of friendships, The demolisher of families, The wrecker of homes, The evil that stalks innocent souls, It lurks in the cupboards of the world, Waiting for…

Crushing Your Dreams 

Running for our lives, We make our way around the track, Just as we hit our stride, We take the time to glance back, The finish line is in sight, There is nothing in our way, It’s a Peculiar feeling, We are about to win, When the fucking blue shell, Blows our chances to hell.

Sleep

Sleep is fleeting, It let’s you flee from the dark, But you need the dark to sleep, Sleep is the one thing we all need, But most don’t get enough. We shroud ourselves in lies, Hiding from the dark, The light is there to protect us, But it also illuminates our fears. I hover in…

All Love Stories Must End

Falling apart afterwards is the hardest part, You have to pull yourself back together, But how can you do that with a broken heart? How can you do that when the light in your life is gone? My soul is broken, My heart has shattered into pieces, The love that was once there is now…

I’m Here

I see you, I know you’re there, Always watching, Always waiting, You don’t need to be shy, I always want to hear from you, Don’t be shy, You know I’m always here.

Why we write

I write to keep myself sane, Sanity is fleeting, If you don’t fight for it, you’ll feel the pain, So I write to keep myself going, Knowing that it’s a ferocious battle, It doesn’t take much for the madness to start to rattle, It started for different reasons, But I continue to keep myself sane,…

Carousel Keeps Spinning

Everything is changing, The world keeps on spinning, The doubts of yesterday are fading, The world of tomorrow is only beginning, We keep moving forward, On this spinning ball, It’s not always smooth sailing, Sometimes we hit the wall, The world is spinning, Others spin with us, Turning in parallel, Until it’s time for them…

Letting Go, Facing the Void

It’s been going on for way too long, I’ve been tormenting myself, Thinking about what could have been, Even long after you were gone, I need to stop, I need to move on, I can’t take this anymore, All I’m doing is hurting myself. You don’t know the pain that you caused, It’s not your…

The Rain Comes Down

The rain comes down, Soaking the ground, We sit there watching it fall, Wondering what to do next, Looking over at you I see the sadness in your soul, I feel the depths of what’s been tormenting you, I’d give everything I have to take the pain away, You look up at me, blinking the…

You’re Torturing Yourself

You keep going back to the small place, Looking for something that’s not there, You won’t find any solace there, It’s time to move on. You’re doing nothing but torturing yourself, Wanting something that you just can’t have, You’re driving yourself into torment, Why are you doing this to yourself? You are a complete idiot,…

I’m Not Running Anymore

The wind howled through the trees, making the branches creak and groan, the moon is fighting to shine through the clouds, but it’s a losing battle, There is no light to shine my path, Running from the past, Moving towards the future, But I can’t outrun my past, It follows no matter where the path…

Why we Fight 

When I sleep there is no peace in the middle of the night, The world keeps running around in my mind, There are so many thing that want to come out, There is no respite, No chance of leaving it all behind, When the wind howls and the night closes in, The darkness follows leaving…

Watching over each other

I know that you are here, watching what I do, It’s always hard missing someone you care for, We go through life looking for connections When we find the connection that’s right for us, We hold on for dear life until it radiates for all to see, I never thought that this could ever happen…

We Saved Each Other

When I met you I was adrift, I was lost in a sea of despair, Floating around with no direction or place to go, You came along and pulled me to shore, Your love made me feel like I never have before, I drifted for years not knowing where to go. I loved you from…

Twisting and Turning

Life is one giant maze, We start at the beginning and head to the centre, Living life through the haze, Twisting passed the obstacles that are set in our path, It’s a Labyrinth and when you think you have the hang of it, It changes the way you think and sometimes it will make you…

The Reaper

He pursues me all the time All I want to do is drink some wine But I need a clear head Or else I will be dead I keep him in my rear-view But he follows no matter what I do. You can’t out run him He is always there The Spector of death the…

Fighting For The Light (Poem)

We fight all our lives to keep on going, Trying to rise up against the emptiness inside, There are times we don’t know if it is worth doing, But the demons are rising battling against the tide, Sometimes it feels we are fighting the tide. They are sneaky little ratbags, Hitting us when we are…

I let you in (poem)

I let you in when I couldn’t let myself in, You saw something in me that wanted to get out, My life was trash and headed for the bin, You did something that I wasn’t expecting, You grabbed the wound covering my heart Ripped it open and exposed my soul. You exposed my heart. Looking…

Grey (Poem)

Life is easier when you are young, You never know what way you are going to go, it is so simple that you think you know what is to come, If only we could keep the innocence of youth, But Oh No, We learn that the world is more than Black and White. It is…

Love and Darkness – Poem (Daily Prompt: Swarm)

You can feel it coming, The need to feel the connection, The feeling swarms your heart, It warms you from head to toes, Everyone who has experienced it knows, The feeling will never go, Even after its lost, It still swarms around you like a ghost. When you try to move on you are haunted…

The Night. –  Poem 

Sleep, Night is my time, Where others sleep, some others weep But for me it’s all mine, I love this time, For those how work at it the days are theirs to keep, I’ll take the night, When the world is quiet and free from plight, Some will disagree thinking I am mad They are…

Daily Prompt: Bespoke (Poem)

You’ll know the range, you’ll know the strain, what is to come is not for the main, I made concession, I made the change, I made myself bespoke and rather strange, Tying myself in knots, just to see you smile, pushing too far, going on for miles, The strangeness intensified as I made the range…

Love and Loss (Poem) 

​You came into my life at a turbulent time, It was difficult for me to love , but you made me smile,  I fixed you and you fixed me, we saved each other from a world of strife, You made my life better, the first woman I’ve loved,  But It got too hard, I had…
