A Shooting Star (a poem)

A Shooting Star
Written November 8th, 2011
You breathed life into my lungs
Took my hand and lifted me from the ashes
You dripped sweet poison into my veins
And burnt me down into nothing

You gave me everything I hoped for
I finally had something to believe in
Now you’re just a whisper on a passing wind
And I don’t know you anymore

You sparked fire in my soul
Saved me from a desolate past
You drowned me in freezing water
And demolished my future

The Love of a Friend (a poem)

The Love of a Friend
Written November 4th, 2011
In the times where life takes the guise
Of an endless hell
When I’ve reached my wit’s end
And my frustration continues to swell
In those moments when I’m beyond stressed
I can still smile and carry on
And say that I’m truly blessed

Oblivion (a poem)

Written October 30th, 2011
The music fills the air around me
I can see the beat pulsing free
The particles vibrating
Dancing, quaking, shaking in time
Pupils dilate
Fingers tap, feet thump

The sound waves flood my ears
And smash through my drums
Fill my head and embrace my brain
The rhythm singes the synapses
And sets fire to my burning neurons
I shiver as electric currents
Sizzle down my spine

We Won't Give Up (a poem)

We Won't Give Up
Written October 26th, 2011
The forest glows with color
Filling our eyes with vibrant yellows
The air around us full of cascading leaves
Our laughter rises with the soft earth aromas
A sweet misty rain falls upon us
Racing through the trees
We burst into our awaiting refuge
Before we turn blue and freeze

The house creaks beneath our feet
Our delighted chatter echoes down the halls
The smell of old books fills the rooms
Paintings of summer cover the walls
A friendly warmth spreads and glows
Encompassing our hearts
And chasing the frost from the windows

Late at night on the porch
A chill wind flies
And the lake kisses the shore
Whispering of love and hope
The trees sigh softly as the sleep
Swaying contentedly in their dreams
The moon climbs higher
On the lake surface her lovely face gleams
