Feelin Alive

Standard

It’s late at night and the energy is high. 

The music is blaring and the lights are loud. 

My friends and I are dancing to the music not worried about the steps. 

I can feel the beat inside of me and I’m feeling alive. 

I could stay here all night. 

My favorite song is playing and I know every word. 

I’m screaming so loud. 

Does anyone hear me?

I feel free as a bird when the music is playing. 

I get lost in the beat. 

I’m feeling alive. 

Thoughts

Standard

The room is spinning and my thoughts are scattered.

But I’m standing still.

I try to focus but my vision is blurry

The darkness consumes me yet the light pushes through

never giving up.

Running through mind the thoughts are scattered.

The room is spinning and my vision is blurry

yet I am standing still.

The darkness consumes me yet I see the light.

Everything is clear.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A poem

Standard

The days are warm and the nights are cold. 

I am all alone. 

The silence consumes me and fear settles in. 

The cold winds howls and the branches clash. 

Rain beating down. 

The sun rises and the birds chirp.

I am happy. 

There are flowers all around. 

The green grass against my toes, feels so good. 

The hot sun beaming down on me 

giving me life.

Standard

There is not a day that goes by

that I don’t think about you

I can still hear your voice in my mind

telling me it’s going to be OK.

You left me too soon.

what am I gonna do?

I wake up in the night expecting to see you next to me.

Yet there is just emptiness and a broken heart.

I had so much to say to you but I couldn’t speak.

You closed your eyes and then you were gone.

The room feel silent and stayed for a long time.

Until someone broke the silence with a smile.

A smile that I will never forget.

 

 

 

 

 

No words

Standard

The words are stuck in my throat.

I can’t get them out.

I open my mouth to speak and nothing comes out.

Instead I let the silence take over.

I hate the silence.

Speak. Just open your mouth and speak.

What are you waiting for?

You have practiced the words many times.

Just tell him you don’t want to.

You can’t marry him.

You thought you could but standing at the alter just now you have changed your mind.

Coward… You ran away with no reason.

Will he understand?

Cried

Standard

*disclaimer: I wrote this last night while listening to a song that reminded me of a special person.*

I cried.

I cried for me.

I cried for you.

I listened to the music and cried.

I cried because it hurts.

A friend

Standard

I spent years liking you from a far.

We finally connected and it was great.

We talked until the silence fell.

I loved the way you were my friend.

Until I said something I thought I never would.

You fell silent.

Then you told me what was on your mind.

We broke apart.

I spend days mad at myself for what I had said.

I cried and got even, so I thought.

After time you came back but only for an instant.

I haven’t heard from you since that instant.

I miss you

Do you miss me?

I hope so.

The music doesn’t sound the same.

I try and try but nothing changes.

Will you come back?

I need you.

I need the music back.

Another day has gone without seeing your face.

Being all alone was not something I thought I could do.

Completing the task was daunting.

Don’t know why you had to go.

Empty inside.

Focused on a journey of the unknown.

Going alone..

Hurry home my love.

I will wait forever.

Joey will miss you too.

Keeping you in my heart.

Looking for new adventures.

Memories are all have I left.

Never saw that coming.

Open your eyes and look around.

People keep asking about you and I don’t know what to say.

Quickly return my love.

Remember me when you need strength.

Surprises everywhere.

Twists and turns are the path I am taking my love.

Unknown lands lay ahead.

Victory will be mine.

Where are you my love?

X marks the spot.

You came back, you came back!

Zebras couldn’t keep me from you, my love.

 

That was my silly little poem. I hope you like it.

Another song

Standard

Here is another song/poem I wrote. Also untitled. Hope you like it .

Danielle

 

So many things to say and unsure of how to say them.

Please just understand I don’t mean to make things worse

I have a feeling inside I just can’t hide.

Liking you is hard enough.

 

I want to scream it from the mountain top.

I want to hold you in my arms tonight.

Why can’t you just tell me you like me too?

We are playing a game I can’t seem to win.

 

I want to be the one you hold so tight

I want to be your everything.

Your guiding light.

Your shinning star.

 

 

I watch from the outside as you

fall in love with someone ele.

And when you need a friend I am always there.

I can’t take it anymore.

 

 

I want to be the one you hold so tight.

I want to be your everything

Your guiding light.

Your shinning star.

 

Your everything to me.

The person you share your secrets with let that be me.

I want to know them all.

Please let me in?

Why won’t you let me in?

 

I want to be the one you hold so tight.

I want to be your everything.

Your guiding light.

Your shinning star.

 

 

Let me be your everything.

Let me be the one you love.

 

A day of reflection

Standard

I went to a memorial for a dear friend of mine. He was like a Grandpa to me. He died last year around April. His name is Frank and we was the kindest person you will ever meet. He was also welcoming and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.  Here come the tears… Ok back to today.. We gathered at Judy’s  (Frank’s wife) house, where he used to live too. We then drove down a clearing above a little beach and we gathered in a circle and a few words were said and we walked down to the beach. Once at the beach we gathered around and Micheal, Judy’s son poured Frank’s ashes into the water while another person poured pink flower petals into the water. We all stood in silence and watched and then the tears started. We hugged and cried until we just stood in silence for a little longer. After said goodbye we walked back to the clearing and got in our cars and drove back to Judy’s  house to have food and to talk about the memories we had of Frank. There was tears of joy and even some laughter. It was a chance to remember a great man. Frank you will be forever missed and forever loved by all.

Danielle

Here is the poem I wrote for Frank. It doesn’t  have a title.

If only I could have one more moment with you.

I would tell you that I love you and to never leave me.

I don’t think I am ready, you say you are but I can tell your not.

You look me in my eye and say.

Don’t go crying any tears

I will be watching for always.

Don’t go crying any tears

I will be watching for always.

You lay your head down and start to close your eyes.

I watch in silence for a moment and start to walk away.

Suddenly you say stay.. I don’t want lose you.

Don’t go crying any tears

I will be watching for always.

Don’t go crying any tears

I will be watching for always.

You won’t lose me I am here for you always.

You taught me how to love and how to forgive.

You are my everything.

You close your eyes and I know its over.

Don’t go crying any tears

I will be watching for always.

Don’t go crying any tears

I will be watching for always.

I will be watching for always.

I will be watching for always

I will be watching for always.

I will be watching for always.
