Forever There

A girl lost in shadows
With no one to help her
She looks at the people passing by
But no one looks her way
She looks down and begins to cry
But then something she does not expect
A warm hand reaches down
And lifts her sobbing face
And tells her
Please don’t cry
Take my hand and be safe from harm
Because everything will be ok

Unnoticed Love

She wanders aimlessly
Through dark halls
Dark halls of bad memory

She lives with blood on her hands
Sweet pain is hers to bare
Sweatshirts and shadows keep her secret

He watches her closely
Cold fingers long to brush back her hair
Lean in for a kiss on her pale lips

Show her she’s loved
That’s all he can think about
But yet she doesn’t even notice him

My Heart Is In Colorado

I never thought that for a second I’d be stuck in this place.
A feeling I can’t escape nor can I face.
All of this happened no thanks to you,
It started as an innocent conversation between two.
I had built a huge wall impossible to climb.
You broke it down in two days, what a beautiful crime.
Days turns into weeks, how did we get here?
I let you into my life, all my emotions and fears.
We talked every second of the day.
I was falling for you and I was here to stay.
I centered my life around you. Did you know?
What happened to my mentality of taking things slow?
“I love you baby,” you would say.
“I will be with you till the end of days.”
“You are my forever and I am here to stay.”
“Move to Colorado baby, so I can marry you today.”
Saying goodbye every time I went home would kill me inside.
Crying the whole walk down the airport to board my plane ride.
Right now its goodbye, but soon it will be goodnight.
This feeling of emptiness in my heart will be temporary right?

My Best Act

In a dark stormy night,
A stage set in the sky
For me, by God Almighty.

Smoky clouds stood as curtain raiser
Drums beating thunder bolts
Moonlight adding beauty to the spot
Twinkling stars to shower buds of love
Lightning flashes for sweetening memories.

All set well except for the players
Waited long…heavyhearted
None came but dawn.

Time for me to leave the stage
Time for somebody else to play
Wounded, but happy that I played,
I played “loneliness” last night.

When You’re Gone

I am languishing in loneliness in a pit of despair.
Shackled by a superfluous sadness and sorrow.
I am afflicted, inflicted by isolation’s cruel grip.
Drowning in quicksand looking for a way out.
Trying to remember your voice to keep me going through the days.
Your radiance to help me get through the nights.
Waking up in a pool of sweat from the never-ending nightmare.
I need to find the strength to rise above.
No matter how difficult it is I will resonant in your resolve.
So that when you’re gone I will remember everything in the next life.

By The Ocean

Laying here staring out across the ocean,
listening to the sound of waves roaring,
gazing up at all of the glimmering stars,
lighting up the sea like a dance floor.

Counting stars as blessings life has given me,
thanking God for each and everyone of them,
so relaxing just lying next to the shore lines,
trying to draw in the last bits of the night.

The full moon shining ever so brightly now,
and the waves calm down to a gentle splash,
a light breeze pushes softly against my skin,
I grab my sweater and drape it around me,
as I go to leave I stop and turn around,
just to admire the ocean one last time.

Destined To Win

I’ve been waiting a long time to win
I definitely deserve to get a victory
I need to win this one for me
I really need the money.
Yes, I’m from New York
I was writing for so long
Never got recognized
I continue being strong.
No company wants to sign me
I’m very talented
I got the certificates
But not the recognition.
If I win this contest
It really must mean
You’re the only ones
Who actually love me.
