Alive (A Poem)

I walk this broken path alone,
my shadow being my only enemy.
Why is it so hard to find love within ourselves,
but so easy to see our flaws.

Each one of has a secret
that they mustn't break.
We must live in the moments
of passion that make us feel alive.
Alive and no longer alone,
alone within ourselves.

Free (A Poem)

I dream of you
but when I wake my
broken heart 
will mend. 

Those feelings I had
Have come and gone.
I'm happy.
I'm free of you,
or at least the
idea of what
I wanted you to be.

My Escape (A Poem)

I remember when I
When I wrote my first poem.
I was such a happy writer to be,
all my words, they flowed so freely. 
Writing became my outlet,
my place for escape.
Escape from the real world,
The drama of everyday life.
I found happiness,
A place where anything could be.
A place where I decided to be me.

Flowers (A Poem)

Flowers, colorful like a summers day
All worries and cares away.
Bright and beautiful
Like the radiance of the world.
The sun shines down on you
and sometimes rain will fall from the
clouds that gaze upon you.

Mystery (A Poem)

My mind
Is a mystery.
Where the pages
Don't fit and
The book doesn't
Make sense.
All the words
Are lost
But the pictures
Are there.

It feels as if
I have lost
My mind.
All these images
Keep coming
Like open
Flood gates.
But it is reality
That I never see.
