Not Alone – A Poem

Hi everyone!

Happy Saturday. Late post for me, but it’s been a busy weekend. I hope yours has been relaxing!

The poems I’ve shared with you so far were written over the years. I haven’t written anything new in a very long time. Part of my new year’s resolution was to write more poetry. I’ll admit, I’m really rusty, but I’m pretty happy with what I’m sharing today. Enjoy this NEW poem ๐Ÿ˜Š


Not Alone

I stood at the end of the bridge,
until the heat of the flame licked my face.
I watched as the memories turned white,
crumbling to ashes as they blew away.

As the light perforated the darkness,
mercy called me from the edge of my rope.
I’m tired, but I’m alive with eyes wide open,
breathe in deep, the truth, I’m not alone.


Let me know what you think in the comments.

I hope you enjoy your the rest of your weekend and Monday doesn’t come too quickly. ๐Ÿ˜

Stare – A Poem

Hi everyone!

Happy Saturday. I’m getting some reading done this weekend. I have two books by Cameo Renae that I’ve promised to read and review, along with an ARC of The Savior’s Champion by Jenna Moreci to finish in preparation for her release day. I am behind on my book reviews, but I promise they are coming. ๐Ÿ˜

I have another poem for you today. Writing really helped when my mom was struggling with cancer, and this was written during that time.


Stare
Stare into the eyes of
an incurable disease.
Horror of agony begins,
residing in nightmares.

Stare into the soul of
this frightening prospect.
Hauling grief and guilt,
leaving no hope behind.

Stare into the heart of
all that you could lose.
Realize this isn’t a dream,
you are wide awake.


What are you up to this weekend? Let me know in the comments and enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Tick Tock – A Poem

Hi everyone!

I hope you had a great Valentine’s Day. We cooked some stuff peppers and hung out at home.

I have another poem for you today. Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜Š


Tick Tock

The ticking of the clock,
is so painful to my ears,
constant noise…

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock…

So sane and logical,
so unreal, a fantasy,
compared to fast-paced reality.

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock…

If I tear the clock off my wall,
and turn back the hands,
will I turn back time?

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock


Let me know what you did for Valentine’s Day in the comments. Enjoy your Thursday!

Angel – A Poem

Happy Superbowl Sunday! I’ll be heading to my Dad’s later today to watch the game. Another poem for you. Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜Š


Angel

Graceful charm,
intertwined with,
the delicate essence,
of angels in heaven.

Harbor my heart,
in your eyes,
and steal my soul,
with one smile.

The air I breathe,
my pulse, my life.
You and only you.
My angel.


Have a great Sunday. If you’re watching the game, enjoy! I hope your team wins ๐Ÿ˜‰

As it Seems – A Poem

Hi everyone!

Happy Friday! I have another poem for you today. Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜Š


As it Seems

It’s like a nightmare,
but you’re wide awake.
Holding on to what little
hope there is left today.

Faced with the prospect
of losing what has been
so wrongly taken for granted,
for so many years.

A burning ache deep
in the pit of your soul,
assures you it’s probably,
as bad as it seems.


What are your plans this weekend? More writing for me!

Black Hole – A Poem

Hi everyone!

Happy Friday. Short post today. Enjoy. ๐Ÿ˜Š


Black Hole

You have made
yourself a bed
at the bottom of
the blackest hole.
Now you’re forced
to lie in it,
and that’s the reason,
you’re unable to
see the sun anymore.


I have lots of reading, writing and cleaning to catch up on, so I’m happy it is Friday! What are your plans for the weekend?

A Story of a Dove – A Poem

Hi everyone!

Happy Tuesday. We were disappointed that the Buffalo Bills didn’t make the playoffs but at least I got to spend time with my Dad. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Another poem for you today. I’m a bit behind on my reading schedule but I should have a book review coming soon!

Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜Š


A Story of a Dove

The streets were empty,
inside was warm,
she begged for mercy,
but the world locked the door.

She laid in the snow,
wings ripped once again,
and sang her song,
of untold pain.

Robbed of her happiness,
and no strength to crawl,
the dove turned to ashes,
with no where left to fall.

….

The wind began to rustle,
the world looked up with fear,
something high up in the sky,
wings of flame appeared.

“It’s her!” The world cried,
the little dove rose from flames,
“Here she comes, here she comes!”
a great Phoenix she became.

Gracefully, she circles high,
over the world who betrayed,
stronger now than ever before,
she shall not again be cast astray.

In the Clouds – A Poem

Hi everyone!

Happy Thursday. I went back to work yesterday and I’m so happy to be back. There wasn’t any joy in being in so much pain these last two months, so returning to work was quite an exciting moment!

Here’s another poem. Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜Š


In the Clouds

Patiently waited bedside for the end,
as your brillant star slowly burned out.
I once thought it was forever we’d spend,
but now I look at my future with doubt.

I sit with picture albums scattered,
trying to make sense of all I have lost.
For a long time, my heart may be shattered,
I must move forward no matter the cost.

I am staying strong just to make you proud,
until the day I meet you in the clouds.


I hope your week has been productive and happy.

Tangled – A Poem

Hi everyone!

Yesterday was a bad pain day, so I disconnected to take care of myself. It seems to be better today, so I’m praying it was just a fluke and that I am getting better. Thanks for all the kind thoughts and wishes.

I wanted to share another poem with you today. Enjoy. ๐Ÿ˜Š


Tangled

My one and only belief,
I’ve found the other side of me,
creating a divine energy,
and balancing my life finally.

Our time together has begun.
This cannot truly be undone.
Every obstacle, overcome.
We are tangled. We are one.


I hope you have a great Saturday. I am going to try to get some reading done (Santa brought me some awesome books, as if I needed to add to my TBR list ๐Ÿ˜‰).

Masquerade- A Poem

Hi everyone! Can you believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve?!

I’ve somehow managed to write a blog post every day this week, despite still feeling like crude. I’m calling that an accomplishment.

I will be spending the rest of my day with the hubby. It’s our only day “off” before the craziness of Christmas begins! I do have a post ready for Christmas Eve, but I will be taking Christmas day off. I’ll do a wrap up of Christmas day on Tuesday!

Enjoy the poem. ๐Ÿ™‚


Masquerade

The desolation and misery youโ€™re feeling now,
has been caused by your obsession with yourself.
All your stories of the things youโ€™ve done,
are all fabrications, you can’t tell the truth.

Your mind is tainted, you think the lies are true.
Itโ€™s a mirage; your reality has been distorted.
Are the memories too much for you to handle?
Maybe thatโ€™s why youโ€™re intoxicated by deceit.

When I am around you, I feel like Iโ€™m in a masquerade,
where youโ€™re forced to where a mask to hid the shame.
You pretend to be someone you never wanted to be,
and I wonder if youโ€™ll ever remove your disguise.


Have a great Saturday!!
