My Poems

Welcome to my Poetry Page!

I have been writing poetry for a little while now and for me it’s a kind-of therapy. So here are a few i thought I would share with you:

 

A blaze of red tears across the blue
Water bleeds from the broken sky
Drowning me in its tears
Red turns from blue to black
The eyes in the sky
Stalk my every move
These streets that I once knew
Are now blurred and unfamiliar
In the blink of an eye
I see the world in its true colours
The reality I once knew
Is now replaced with another
The shadows cast their true form
The ground swallows me whole
A peaceful decent
To a place of oblivion

Breathing in
The fresh colours of spring
The nights are no longer
Drawing in
Instead the days grow longer
As the sun grows stronger
The nesting birds
Sing their song
A celebration
Of life and love
Enough to regenerate a soul
The hibernating world
Is awaken
As is the promise of hope
A time of new beginnings
Where nothing seems impossible

________________________________________________________________________________

Its days like theses
When the sun is shinning
And the birds sing
High in the trees
That my mind
Feels totally free
Bursting with the colours
That spring has sung
Sometimes I wish
I could collect these rays
Store them away
My own personal supply
That I can use
When the seasons change
And the sky becomes grey

________________________________________________________________________________

Every tear shed
Is a heart that’s bleeding
Every mind that is shut
Is a wall we’re building
Every cold, lonely night
Is a person that’s breaking
Every word that is written
Is a life that’s rebuilding
Every hand outstretched
Is a soul that’s healing

________________________________________________________________________________

Rolling hills
Speckled with sheep
The grass sways
Under my feet
Flowers bloom
All around me
The sun sinks in the horizon
Smearing the sky
With all shades of pink

________________________________________________________________________________

My mind is like
An overgrown garden
A tangle of bramble thoughts
A maze of abandoned paths
Where the sun is forever hiding
But in the distance
I hear a single bird
Perched on a blossoming tree
A sign of hope
A place of tranquillity
Where my mind is finally free

________________________________________________________________________________

Wrapped around my throat
A black scarf of lies
Each breath draws it tighter
Sucking the air from my lungs
My body feels heavier
A weight on my mind
If I knew then
What I know now
Maybe I wouldn’t have let you in
Let you crawl under my skin
Knowing that my life
Will become one, black lie

________________________________________________________________________________

I chase the words
Off the edge of the page
Desperately scratching down
The next line of my pain
My hand can’t write
As fast as my mind can play
Each and every letter sealing my fate
They say it’s a way of healing
But all I see is the demons
Living inside my head
It doesn’t rid my soul of darkness
It doesn’t ease the suffering
It just makes it all a bit more visible
And now it all feels a bit more real

________________________________________________________________________________

A fire from within
Burning across my skin
The sparks of desire
Fuel my healing heart
Rising from the ashes
My soul like a phoenix
Life coursing through me
Flooding my veins
You thought you destroyed me
Instead I rise stronger
