Trying To Rhyme
Time, as simple as the sun that sets, Brings doubt to my true happiness What more is there than my patience given To send me to my earthly heaven Though the setting sun brings beauty through closure, I struggle to keep my full composure So I ask, please feed this one desire That in my heart would burn the greatest fire
I Miss The Horizon
I miss the horizon... I miss the cold, untouchable water That keeps me from chasing after the sun As it sets But most of all... I miss the time alone with my thoughts I miss the time to write At this point, Nothing is the same
To A Friend
There is a small sparkle in her eyes Where I see true happiness, But as time goes by and we are apart I become less and less a part of that happiness In this sparkle, our thoughts would dance and never tire, And our teasing would always catch a smile No matter how grave the circumstances We nearly lived our dreams through words And spoke so vividly that the other was in awe Yet somehow the excitment has faded I care for her more than anything, But her heart still gets broken And the hugs slowly stop coming So now I sit at the lake that we first got to know eachother And the distance between us is getting longer Than a trip to the city Because I am no longer in that glorious sparkle, But am content nevertheless Because her happiness will never leave her
I felt invisible today Honestly invisible If you want to know the secret If you really want to know Then here it is It's kind of hard to do But somehow I'm a pro Last chance to turn back... BE DIFFERENT
I Know Who You Are
I know who you are It's no mystery to me now I can see your smile I can smell your hair I can taste your lips I can feel your skin against mine I love you, and I know you love me too Because i know who you are I just don't know where you are...
Searching for a Guide
Loneliness engulfs me like a thick fog Many times have I failed to find my way There are infinite paths to take, But only one will take me to where I want to stay A bright light contrasts the darkness I have found my guide When I look into her eyes I am no longer lost, but eternally peaceful A soft embrace will open my heart A gentile kiss will unite our souls But the eyes begin to see another The light slowly dims I see darkness once again I am but a slave to a compassionate heart...
I have given Him my heart I am saved But others look at me And see nothing Sometimes I look in the mirror And I agree
I cannot try to explain Myself, my reasoning, my thoughts Until you see what I see Until you walk the beaches I have walked And experience the beauty I have seen Until you find your own search for love And relate it to my own Until you look deeply into the glimmer in my eyes And see a vision of Yourself
What is the Sense
What is the sense of writing poetry To try and make others Think When the close minded people You cry out to donít ďlikeĒ Poetry
Am I as open of a person as I thought I was? I come home, stare out the window And watch the rainfall I am comfortable But if I stand outside Who will know the difference Between rain and tears? Maybe I can find someone With an umbrella
Iíve Tried So Hard
Iíve tried so hard, given all I had It would seem as if I had nowhere to turn, but I am dizzy I can talk the talk, but I canít walk the walk because I trip on every first step. I have so much to offer and I know That itís more than many people need, but we live in a world Of selfishnessÖ Everyone willing to receive and take but few With the courage to give, to try, or to even care. Things I Base my personality from are rare characteristics only Looked upon in passing. Iím so fragile, but my strong emotion Also gives me strength to put others before myself, to look For happiness for more than myself, but for people like me who need it. I do my part to support unity. Iím Willing to be the first to sacrifice if others will follow.
Am I to be a Flame
Fire Burning constant and strong Struggling with the wind Yet burning as bright as can be Until A single strong current Overtakes the flame Extinguishing all light Time Passing slowly as expected Reveals no malevolence But waitsÖ Patiently
Sometimes I find a moment To stare up at the stars And think of you Of us... Iíll remember our conversations Word for word And the expression on your face When you laughed And cried... Iíll imagine a future Where we are still together Complimenting each other So perfectly And so happy... But I'll realize How far the stars really are, And the moment passes in disappointment Not all dreams come true Sometimes...
