Can’t Find My Way Home

You are like a lost soul searching / Never really knowing where to look. / Or even knowing what you need. / Your life is an old, sad book.

Sometimes we meet the wrong people.

Sometimes we meet the wrong people. / And have the wrong conversations. / And help the wrong strangers. / And go into the wrong places. / …

This Thing Inside Me

I am a monster and pity all who undertake the notion they can run because it only fuels my lust and I love the animal I have become.

My Tears Are Your Rain

Written during a rain storm in which I imagined that the rain was a sad woman weeping for the one she left behind.
With what a deep devotedness of woe by Nikki Smith

I Love You….

I Love You, / Could I have ever said it better, / Stood upon a mountain,
This Thing Inside Me by RPGesus

Past it !!

“You have a great personality” / they say “your beauty’s inside” / My beauty’s so far from the surface …

Another Shade of Grey

I’m thinking of her. / I’d break the rules and then recover. / She likes to paint the world grey. / I’ll save her from herself today.

Still Standing

I stand like a Tree surrounded by City. / Harsh, cold concrete binds my roots! / I shift uneasily in this unwelcoming ground…

Where Shadows Cry

she came to a place where shadows cry / silenced tongue sings no relief, no sigh / draws only sorrow nigh

I’m Here

Does this mean that / I no longer matter? / As my light begins to fade, / And my memories begin to scatter. . . / Do I no longer matter?

She Cries Your Name

Come home to me my children / I am so lonely now. / I crave your sweet attention / Any time that you will allow.


I am a piece of fiction, none of it is true. / I am an actress in your private film. / I am an obsession, a drug.

for at the bottom of these stairs / there waits an ocean / scarlet sea

Time to Die

I have this pain far inside, / And I continue to ask, why? / There is a voice calling to me, / I feel its’ time to die. . . .

PREMONITION by timachristina The Change by Angel0418

the silence of remorse

silence, sometimes welcome respite from the world, / is never what I want from you. / it says too much in its emptiness


We all have scars we want to hide, / to bury deep away inside. / Where do they come from? / Where do they come from?
Happy New year  to you all ...2010........(poem attached) by marieangel

The Tear

Solitary foe / escaping through / the window / of my soul / declaring woe / and no one / knew / the bitter cup / was full?


I put pictures on my skin, / The hours I sit with pain / Numbs my mind / And heals my hurt, / Cause no matter what / You can’t take …

Pas Seul

And, although your presence permeates / the silence of the shadows / I see nothing.

groping in the dark

we cannot force reality, we cannot take the pain nor change what is / except by being there, to witness what is shown – / to care.

enough already

broken hearts! / they’re a drug on the market, / a cheap commodity nobody wants to buy

Life based on lies

My wings have been clipped / Holes punched through / I can no longer fly / I am no longer free.

For ?

Does the beauty fade or does it just burn on inside both of us? Your touch will be on my skin until the earth removes it.

What You’ve Done

I saw a film – in fact I watched it twice – / about inevitability, the way things are meant to be. / This is what happened to us.
