Clawing at the walls
The silence angers me
Building as each minute passes.
The fire threatens to consume me.
Burning every inch of my body.
Until I’m sure there is no escape.
Here comes the rage.
Flowing with the force of a hurricane.
I zone in on my target.
In my last sane moment.
The glass and flame beckon to me.
Oh… the rush.
The sweet stench of the burn.
Sends me reeling, further into the darkness.
I make my move.
Slow and precise.
It always seems like,
The world is in my way.
I give life all I’ve got,
Every hour of every day.
I’m honest and kind.
Always keeping others in mind.
I can’t help but wonder when,
I will be my time to shine.
Simple things in life I seek.
Guess that’s not in the cards for the meek.
Happiness, toys, and adventures to go on.
I want to give my children,
Before they grow up and leave home.
They need innocence to hold onto.
A memory in their hearts to sing to.
I’ll give them that and more someday.
If only the world would get out of my way.
The October moon will soon rise.
Fear will fill their eyes.
Darkness is upon us
Something creeping in the shadows
Almost touching you
Then you turn quickly
There’s nothing there
The fog rolls in
Goosebumps all over your skin
You know you’re not alone
As you reach for your phone
The evil behind you groans.
I have made several listopias on Goodreads for my novels and poetry collections. Best Books of 2013, Unputdownable Paranormals, Best poetry books, Best book covers, Books that were more than you expected, and Books that should be made into movies. etc. I’m really proud that I’ve accomplished this. It’s great and I wanted to share it with everyone! No matter what you like to read just KEEP READING!
Love comes softly and most unexpected.
It creeps up like a soft breeze,
Waiting for recognition.
Ignore it and be left wishing.
Welcome it and be forever changed.
The warm touch of true love,
Can melt the most frozen of hearts,
Leaving the soul shaken and hungry for repair.
The body beckons for more,
The heart pleads for another taste.
The Spirit always knows when it is home.
You are my strength.
The only way for the pieces to be fixed.
But can you stand the hate that fills me?
Will you help fight the urge to destruct?
Those urges are far more numerous and evil than you could imagine.
The question is;
Will you stay?
Can you see through the cloud of madness?
Will you be able to see that it is a test?
Will you walk away lacking what it takes to love?
The little boy inside me screams out in fear.
God how I want to get out of here.
In this place I shouldn’t be.
I don’t know why you were taken from me.
Life is filled with pleasure and pain.
I can’t believe I have to bury you in the rain.
I hope the angels are all singing.
As Heaven’s bells are ringing.
For today I say goodbye to my father, my friend.
I can’t wait to see you again in the end.
