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.”
Jeffrey Lee



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
Jeffrey Lee




I wish I could slam my fist against the walls of the world
The sound of my bones shattering like glass
And blood flowing like lava from the open wound
As my body quivers and shakes from the pain

My cries scream out like an endless hurricane
As my tears floods the world in sorrow
But still no one listens
Still no one cares

Billions of ants crawl upon me
Gnawing upon my naked flesh
Ripping the hair off my back
And bleeding the blood from my veins

When I die, who will remember me?
Who will remember the billions of ants?
Now specks of dust in a sea of sand
Buried under the monuments of their own design

No one will remember the great world that has come today
Just as they have forgotten all the empires that have come before
For we all must live, die, and be forgotten
Buried beneath the ground we once called out home
Jeffrey Lee



I wish...

Fighting my demons night after night
On the battlefields of broken dreams
I want her so much I want to scream and shout
But I know it was never meant to be

I look back and imagine, all the chances that came before
And pretend that if I had done things differently
We might have become more, then what we are now
But I know it isn't true, but I still can't help but wish

I wish, I wish, I wish over and over in my mind
That she loved me, that she needed me as much as I want her
But I know I'm lying to myself,
I know she doesn't look at me like that
But I can't help, but wish and wish and wish.

The bed feels hot,
the sheets are tossed,
the blanket dangles onto the floor

Another night turns into day,
another night lost thinking of her
I want her so much,
I whisper her name pretending she can hear me
But I know she isn't there
I know she can't hear me
I know she doesn't care
Jeffrey Lee
