Beware the Lurkers

For they, the lurkers in the dark,come swiftly and quietly;luring the souls of the innocent,stealing the souls of the lost. How quietly and invisibly they glide,unbeknownst to men and women alike;who have let down their guard,who have opened their entryway. Always hiding in the shadows,blending into the darkness;reaching out to snatch the unaware,in an everlastingContinue reading “Beware the Lurkers”

The Wind That Blows

Oh, the wind that blows,carrying dreams of the lonely,wishes, what-ifs and if only,while the leaves whisper their goodbyes. Oh, the wind that carries,the promises of spring,the song the birds sing,while seeds scatter to live yet again. Oh, the wind that ravages,tearing up all that it meets,sending garbage flying through streets,while lovers take shelter and findContinue reading “The Wind That Blows”

It Is In the Learning

It is in the learning,the stretching of the mind;in the growing up,ourselves we start to find. Yet in the learning, there is a struggle,and sometimes failure, yes, it’s true;it’s how we handle each of these,that determines if we make it through. We expand our horizons,when we’re learning something new;and open many new doors,to help ourContinue reading “It Is In the Learning”

In The Silence

I speak volumes in the silence,leaving words of love unsaid;a look, a smile, a touch,the way I tilt my head. There is sorrow in the silence,a pain unspoken, even still;from a time, so long ago,oh, the pages I could fill. There is a thoughtfulness in the silence,a pondering of sorts;contemplating lifes’ true meaning,a place too,Continue reading “In The Silence”

A Letter From Me

A letter to me,I should write;jot down some words,every night. Tell myself,how great I feel;and help myself,to keep it real. One that has no ending,and starts, well, right from here;one that keeps on going,year, after year, after year. And when my days are over,and these words you happen to see;then you will hold something special,aContinue reading “A Letter From Me”

I Am Weary

I am weary,tired to the core;not wanting to give up,yet not wanting anymore. Every day is a new struggle,every hour a tedious chore;trying to stay safe,and not let life become a bore. Yet, everyday is new,a chance to start again;to smile, to love, to laugh,to see what’s next and wait til then. Every smile, aContinue reading “I Am Weary”

One Day

One day the world will be free,and everyone will live in peace;no one will live in fear,war and violence will all cease. Some day no one will recall,when others were hurt;and some were belittled,or shoved in the dirt. Any day will be a good day,the world will be a wonderful place;and all can love freely,regardlessContinue reading “One Day”

In My Reflection

I see a reflection of the person I am.At times not recognizing myself,wondering where I went,until I look into my eyes,then, in my reflection,only then,do I see the person I am. Then, only then,can I look past the external being,look within, looking deep,reflecting inward,to where I am,to where I truly exist. The tears,the sorrow,the joy,theContinue reading “In My Reflection”

I Walked Away

I walked away,not because I wanted to;because I needed to,because of you. I walked away,with sorrow in my heart;knowing what I lost,thrusting us apart. I walked away,to start anew;to trod a different path,that didn’t include you. I walked away,to ease the pain;to stop all the verbal and physical abuse,you inflicted time and time and again.Continue reading “I Walked Away”
