———-

The stares

I can’t stand them

My fears

I can’t fathom them

It all seems so uncertain

.

Days and months pass by

Every moment harder than the last

Betrayed by a kiss

Enslaved by a word

My life can never be the same

.

Peering back

Many regrets

Glancing forward

It seems so bleak

The shadows surround me

.

A moment of weakness

A life of pity

Tortured by memories

They forever haunt me

Destined to never forget


A Dedication To That Special Someone…

I love you

It was in the early hours of that Saturday morning,

That our paths crossed for the very first time,

In fact we only left just before the sun was dawning,

We talked so much it should be a crime,

Eventually everyone left us behind,

But the truth is we really didn’t mind.

We had a few dates and things went pretty well,

So we made it official and together we’d raise hell.

My love, that was one hundred days ago,

I really hope there are many thousands still to go.

I just wanna let you know that you are simply amazing

And that I love you so much that it’s almost frustrating.
