  5.     

A girl I Once Knew

I once knew a girl
So very long ago
With her wavy brown hair
And eyes that sparkled so

I once had a friend
That was very dear to me
I could talk to her
And she could confide in me

We would share our hopes and dreams
And with it all our dark fears
Growing closer and closer
Back in those young lost years

I once fell in love
That would forever change my soul
With a girl who, would sadly never know
Each and every day, I prayed
To see her again, some day

I once saw an old friend
Walking by, on that fateful day
Which is now etched in my mind
And constantly replayed

I never said hi, or a hello, not even a good bye
I just looked and watched
As my life passed me by
And now I know, I can never go back

Reflections

I cast the first stone
Into calm waters
Watching the ripples
Slowly grow and fade

I stare into the waters
Reflecting myself
Wondering if this person
Is who I have become

The longer I stare
At that unforgiving sight
The more I wonder
If this is truly who I am

I don’t know if I’m me
Staring into the mirror
Or am I the reflection
Staring back at me

Is this how the world
Views this shell of me
Because this is not the person
I've imagine myself to be

Everyday, all I see
Is these two hands
And the world around me
Never caring how I appear to be

Avoiding mirrors
Wherever I go
Reflecting a person
That no one will ever know

  7.     

Box Full Of Memories

A shoebox full of dusty memories
Full of bad poems and faded pictures
That should have been burned years ago

Old flimsy year books with little stains on the cover
With old forgotten friends safely tucked inside
Still smiling, unaware of how sad life was going to be

Crumpled pieces of paper, with half written words
Aimlessly searching for the words my heart couldn’t say
Yet I couldn’t throw them away, still caring what they said

And a single red rose, now wilted away
The last one I almost gave to her on that lonely Valentines day
But I knew, that it wouldn’t be alone, as it drowned in a sea of others

I picked up the cover, to put the memories away
And I found a wish, scribbled on the back
“I wish she knew, how much I loved her.”

  8.     

Legal Suicide

Blowing out the smoke
As if they were all my troubles
And watching them all
Quickly drift and fade away

I breathe in the grey death
Hoping it will kill all the troubles
That I’ve held on to for so long
But all it does is kill me

I take a comfort in the thought
That I now have once less breath to take
One less thought in the burrows of my mind
One less moment obsessed with regret

Before I know it, the embers reach their end
As I take one long last breathe in
I remember all the little troubles of the day
And I just blow it all out
