A shadowSomething was brokenHer reflection used to be mistaken Broken wings that made her free from pain A shadow that follows her everywhere Won't leave herShe's a strong fighterTurns around and finds herA shadow stands thereFinding her strength again Somebody she used to know Another memory to hold to She knows a shadow
She could findShe could find words in a songAnd sing foreverShe knows MemoriesAnd regrets That keep her strong She could find mistakes See what lies ahead Picking up the piecesOver and over againShe keeps a promiseTo keep the hope she hasShe could find her strengthTake a step aheadTo see what will happenShe sees her reflectionAnd there is a sign Of her dreams are alive She could find honesty Forget the lies of realityFor they can think About the negative And positiveShe could find her stepsShe followsHer shadow She knows Her fearsAnd tears make who she is
SearchingThe pieces that fellThey shine on the ground There is a smile I am not alone I understand Even though my heart hurtsThe reflection Slowly healing Nightmares are my dreamsThe lightLeading the way through the darkness Forever searching and praying
Looking out my windowLooking out my windowThere's this shadow I turn around And I find youStanding thereYou tell me "Shed no tears"Looking out my windowI can't help but to wonderAbout the pieces that shatteredOf my reflectionSlowly healingThe help of your touchPut them back togetherLooking out my windowThere's this part of me Getting stronger in faithNo more losing hopeShadows will hideYour light will shine downLooking out my windowMy dreams still remainJust have painBut I know my dreams will followOnce my nightmare is gone My fears won't get the best of me, not anymoreLooking out my windowWatching for a signOf a promise that is keptWords that cut me in halfBut made who I amSometimes I need you here Looking out my windowThe shadow leavesBut I know she's still hereBecause not one memoryOf her will not be forgotten Her smile will shine down
Me and youI'll never forget the day we first metHow you left It didn't take me long To realize you were going to do so.The night when we walked in the eveningSunset with bright red and orangeHow you looked at meI know we have differences.The comfort to my pain The tears of my dream The longing to my touch The searching of my heart.You're just a memory nowSomebody I used to knowYou forgot about meI can't forget about you.
Slowly healingThe sun was setting with bright orange and redA day I can't forget of somebody I used to knowHer shadow is still here Telling me "Never lose hope and don't give up"Her words gave a touch of healing A sign to remain strong through the pain I turn around and look up at the skyAt night as the stars are brightHer smile shines As her shadow leaves She gives a promise as she told meThe light will be your guide
LookingSome kind of a sign To let me know Someday I'll be fine Only in a dream.Wonder about the shattering piecesThe mirrorThe memoriesThe regretsEverything else I think about.Stronger you can be Letting go can be hard Other times it can be easyFeeling of contentment.Still looking for hopeA promise to not give upYou're still hereAnd so am I.
A PromiseThe tears down my faceSilently they fall with painShed no tears you say I told you I'm going to be fine A promise to remember You stand there I'm here and no need to worryDon't leave and I won't either The past is behind us Mistakes make you stronger You're special in your own wayNever forget who areA promise to keep fighting To keep close Something new and gained Something felt and never changed
The ReflectionIt was unknown,She was getting weak,Her touch by her hand,Strength not to give up.Special and unforgotten,Lived to fight a battle,She let it go,Even though it hurt.Lost in the darkness,And out of the light,Shadows surround me,Hope gives me sight.Without you here,I feel no one understands,I long for your touch,That kept me believing.Dreams become nightmares,A reflection of the mirror,Gives me a sign,Of someone who is strong.Eyes can't cry,Because too many flowed,Down on my face,A smile disappeared.Her beautiful reflection,Is her smile that shines down,Telling me I'm not alone,Will never be.
Finding A WayI could find words in a songAnd sing foreverBut instead I know we don't belongMy heart is shattered The same mistakesMemoriesAnd regretsKeep finding the piecesI know I'll be fineI'll be me again somedayOnce I know I'm not brokenNo, just wanted you to stayYou say the words And I'll be the one Listening to our heartsAnd find a way and not be apart Every step countsYou get closer Every type of painYou get strongerI know we're breaking freeAnd don't need the pain You be youAnd I'll be meI don't need to find the inspirationI'm not letting go of itThe hope and the dreams that I prayThe light I know that is withinOur broken wings will find a wayAnd our hearts can be the sameSomething new, something gainedSomething felt and never changed
One more time you said (I remember)One more time you said And I listenedTo my heartScars cut deepThey remind I'm aliveLiving one day at a time One more time you said And I openedMy eyesA clear view A light shines it's wayThrough the hope of a new dayOne more time you said And I remember Everything I've been through It made me strongerWho I was back then I wished for you to see the real me
Who you areFeeling aloneBeing heartbroken Tears that silently flowCan't describe the painWords can't come easilyHow to stay strongEnduring whatever comes Makes who you areSilence speaks louderYou start to wonder Even though you hurtScars mark your heartMissing the person you used to beWishing to find a wayOvercoming the fearsDon't want them to stay
Lost dreams and the reflectionI used to think about you everydayNow you're just somebody I used to knowLost dreams that can't find a wayAnd a heart that wanted you to stayJust another memory...You used to tell me that I was enoughWe were inseparable But somehow you gave upAnd I'm finding pieces of my reflection Just another heart ache...I'm tired of being in the same memoryIt's just another regretThat I can't forgetBecause of youMy heart is missing you...Words mean nothing to you The silence I can't take no more Lost dreams and the reflection of meMissing the person I used to beBut I manage to live without you... And....life goes on...
Miles To GoA river have I to travelFor what purpose I do not knowBut here I am, heading downstreamThrusting the oar through the waterI propel my wood raft forwardWith miles to go before I sleepNumerous arbors have I pastWillows with river-kissed branchesWidowmakers growing massiveBut no matter what tree I passI remain the lone sojournerWith miles to go before I sleepKnowing that I must continueDevoid of all hesitationI bid these fine arbors farewellAs my raft drifts through the waterI stare into the distanceWith miles to go before I sleep
Books.We check the backsof good booksfor epiloguesunwritten,Running a cautious fingerdown their spinesexpecting goosebumps to bloomfrom those paper mausoleumsthat hold lives and deathsthat happencyclically in our heads.We slide them back betweentwo others,cuddled closein a particleboard purgatory.And with less frequency,we revisit those living thingstrapped inconstancy.And write anotherand another-
PaperPaper 8/23/99I write poetry to expressfeelings not easily defined -perhaps stunted in my mind.They become crystal clear on paper.Paper doesn't talk back.It allows free will.It won't mock or betray me.It listens as I rant and rave - unbiased.It appreciates my openundeniable love.It has seen me through pain -love - hate - heartbreak -misery - and mistakes.I write these words to me.Sometimes these words arenot popular, but they are mine.I share my disconcerting wordsto give people a glimpse ofmy distracted self.My soul and heart are left to bare...It means something to me...

The Gathering!Under cypress tree, when moon is highSpirits gather, hear collective sighCemetery arisen, short hours of blissDearly departed create ghostly mist.Nebulous night walkers mean no harmOur presence detected, they'll raise alarmCollective reminder of what use to beDistant past calls, no future they see.World changed face, so many timesMounting fear from grave they climbWhat is this world? impossibly newLost their place how strange the view.Underworld is now their domainTime has come and gone, no painDreams don't invade, no tears to weepSpirits consoled, eternal sleep.2012 Delice19419th October2012Updated 2013-2014

The Difference Between You and IThe thorns sink in as the road darkens ahead and I dream that one day we can sleep in peaceful beds as the air thickens with night's reign as fear spreads.When will yesterday be a forgotten sentence? We seek calm yet we must meet war head on without undue pretense.To put the animal out of it's misery, to call upon those who seek to civilize,I yet walk with my dreary head held high,I float away while the greedy drown in their vicious lies.Some may have sympathized for my plightbut the awakened souls know who has always won the fight,now we are millions spanning all races putting those who put skin or body ahead through their paces,my name helped inspire a mounting torch,your dying legacies of hatred are already among the forgotten faces.(in celebrati
