I want to see beautiful things
Tour the world see something new
Bright and lovely
Living in colors only imagined
I want to be free of the dark
No more shadows
Only light filled days
Bring me flowers of every kind
Trees glistening with life
My feet in the sandy beach
The ocean before me dancing merrily
Can this be more than a dream
Please my love
Travel with me in beauties delight
She was haunted. Haunted by a ghost of the past that seemed more a ghoul.
It shattered her belief in safety, reliance on any other being.
The daft spirit gave her no rest, especially in the dead night.
Her dreams became nightmares and only she could hear the screams.
Poltergeist by a force unseen by all with one exception, her.
It fed off of the fears that poured out from within her.
Will she die alone and lonely with only this shade to morn you?
Why close my eyes
To face nothing but nightmares
To be haunted
Terror absorbing me
Awakening in shock
Covered in a cold sweat
No comfort for me
Surrounded by darkness
Alone with my despair
I cannot remain in this place
Yet I can not seem to move
Frozen with fear
How do I escape this pain
How do I get out of the past
It seems it will never leave me
It will never release me
What is called when you want to live, but yearn to die?
What are the words to use when none can describe?
Why does the keep hurting even after the time has gone?
Why must I live those days on a constant repeat?
When these wounds heal, or close, or vanish from sight?
When will my memory recall the joyful times alone?
Where is the place to rest away from haunting dreams?
Where the darkness rest I seem to always be…
How do we fight a seemingly hopeless battle?
How am I to live when I really want to fade away?
What is this feeling, more than fear?
Encompassing my mind, body and soul.
Enveloped in a darkness, a shattering sense.
Holding myself tightly, keep me together.
I will fall apart, disappear, fade away.
It keeps getting darker.
I can not seem to breathe.
Life is not so simple, to just be okay.
Will it stop, will it end?
The circle, a cycle that continues to spin.
Am I dying here, within my skin?
Just a broken memory.
These demons will not run away so easily.
How shall I live when the pain is invisible to eyes?
Can you heal a wound that is deep inside?
In places no one can see, hidden from even me.
Maybe just a bit longer.
Just moment more.
If I awake today, perhaps I shall try once more.
I saw beauty today
As I walk this way
Enlightened by simplicity
Joy in complexity
Nothing as it seems
Freer than my dreams
I needed more of this
To remain in bliss
If only here I’d stay
Keep this peace I pray
Dancing in the light
Delighted in the sight
Will it fly away from me
As a fleeting bird
To only remain a memory
Or much more a story
Do discover a new way
The version unwritten
A path not yet blazed
For what is this world,
If not a place to live in wonder.
To breath in each new day,
As if it were your very last.
Overwhelmed with joy
Do not believe that the age of discovery has passed.
Do not carry on as if you have known all the unknown.
We have yet to reveal the truth,
In all its raw beauty,
Beyond a mere belief.
This was never meant to be a moment lived standing still.
Do you not see,
The world keeps on spinning
As you await a reason to be alive.
Just simply live.
Pasted pictures cover the walls
Memories of long ago
Each precious moment with you
Frozen in time are you and I
Those few times I smiled
When you were close to me
Wishing I could melt into them
These images starring back
Showing a special time
I can not keep living there
In the past places
Hoping to be free from the pain
Grab the camera dear
Let’s take an adventure
Smile for me my love
We will make more joyful memories
I use to have a garden
I planted every spring
It was truly something to see
So proud of the color
I would invite you to glimpse
To relax in the gentle glow
If you came today
It may give you quite a scare
For the shades of light
They have all become dark
Dying plants littered about
Withered trees crying out
No this place has no light
A garden of death residing
I once was filled with wonder
The desire to explore
The first to suggest an expedition
To search the farthest places
Jumping from the pages of books
To the world of color surrounding
Gaze upward and dream
That was once a long time ago
Before it all turned dark
Can we ever return to such freedom
The tender dreams of innocence
A safe place to explore
Feel secure enough to travel once more
