Darkness is not the absence of light,but the cover for it.
When you feel only darkness or pain or see it in another.
Look beneath this.
There is light there in the Soul.

As water reflects the face,so one's life reflects the heart <3

I am a soul of many faces,sometimes dark and then light reflects my inner soul,coming into being.
My poems all come from within,deep down the words are engraved upon my soul and hidden within my brain.
I cannot stop writing,cause that would be the death of me. I have tried,but the words keep flowing.Only stopping for moments in time.
I shall always be what God intended for me to be.His light shines deep within the shadows that surround me.

Glassy eyes
stare back through the mirror
Seeing you within
my eyes
My thoughts turn to you
Times when I came home
from school
Those glazed eyes
Staring in the doom
Affliction of the disease inside
the mind
Running in the afternoon
Changing your appearance
as though I didn't recognize you

So I'd leave
Not wanting to fight this person
who once was my mother
Now changed into another
with anger filled inside
her glazed eyes
As she sips her alcohol
waiting to argue at the slightest
things

When it finally killed you
on the day you died
I cried as though I lost a part of me
Now I see you left a piece of you
inside of me
So I'd always remember the deep
darkness that crawled
within you
Giving you that glassy stare
Before you found your light
at the end
Setting you free
But not before a piece
rested in me
Leaving it's glazed stare
in the mirror
Upon my face
with it's traces of you
there.

Just a poem about Alcohol and the problems it leaves behind.
Often turning children and grandchildren
into what they left behind.

Irish red hair Mischievous stare
that smile
God that smile
could get her in anywhere

born running to lifes fast lane
   free spirit, no chains
fiery passion coursing her veins
rolling stone in a hurricaine

She's gone
months on end
then out of the blue
she's home again
stories to tell
Wild nights, Raising hell

Like a ship with no anchor
can't stay too long
need to be free
free to roam

An original wild child
no moss on this stone
wherever she lay her hat
that was home

I remember the time and place
when i took the call
as time stood still
as I recalled

Irish red hair mischievous stare
that smile
God that smile  
could get her in anywhere

I looked up at the sky
with tears in my eyes
blow her a kiss  
said my goodbye

Three life times you lived
in such a short while
daughter, sister
 wild child, drifter

With a smile on my face
I could picture the scene
Through heaven's gates
in a fiery blaze  
God himself
with one eyebrow raised
she'll give him a wink
and that beautiful smile

"I'm not staying long
I'm just passing through
people to see
things to do"

Irish red hair Mischievous stare
that smile
God that smile
could get her in anywhere

This is a tribute to my wild child sister,she lived fast and died young,
My Dad always said, she'll never make old bones.She was 43 when her party on this earth stopped.

Between the stars
that shine and sparkle
within the night
I can't help wondering
Who or what is alive
out there in the skies
we can't be the only ones
that exist in this vast
universe

Filled with life

Life is everywhere
Some seen and some unseen
The whole world moves and breathes
Tiny speckles of life
exist within this planet
alone
So much more beyond our door
of life
So many planets that exist in the universe

Much out there

Nobody knows

Sometimes in dream time life
Do you ever feel yourself
take flight
Traveling to unknown places
of light
Not fully remembering
Just a haze of something happening
in the night.

Why do I feel like this?
Like I can't breathe when I'm alone
Like I can't be in my own skin for very long
It must be December or I'm catching a cold
Why don't you believe me?
I'm so close to the edge
At my breaking point while you still push me over
I can't feel anything but can still feel everything
I'm in a fog
Cotton-mouthed
Didn't wake up from my own nightmare
I was born in April and that explains my eyes
But I still can't find anyone to explain the way I feel
I can't do this anymore
My heart is gone from me
But no matter how hard I beg
God won't let me feel the relief
(k.m.m.)

His Truth.
His Light.
His Life-Giving Word.
Enters in.
Healing all my broken places.
Mending.
Every scar.
Keeping me.
From falling
apart.

I carry you
in my heart
Dreams come alive
when I think of you
Drawing your face
in my mind
With a memory pencil
I sketch you alive
I hear laughter in your voice
Bringing tears to my eyes
Seeing you as though I could
touch your face
Inside the memory book
of grace
Mystical sounds of the past
now run through my mind
Memories lie inside my heart
where you come alive
Each flick of the page
that rolls through my mind
Brings emotions
The past gently skips me into life
Before the book closes
and your face eases back into the shadows
of night
Leaving me in the present
with vague memories of our life
together.

Memories of loved ones,gone in a flash.So cherish each moment as you never know when death will call you aside;-\
Written for my Mother who passed away many years ago,but not forgotten.

I need some light
so tired of this darkness
I walk in
the grey weighing heavy
on my heart

it is
days
weeks
months

like these

that I can barely look up to the sky
and remember there is blue up there


but no one knows
because damn it
I put on a good show
a fake smile on my face
and I'm all painted up to glow



though my facade is fading
and the pieces of my mask
crunch under my footsteps
as I walk through the chaos
my insomniac mind lays out before me

and all I can do is
trudge through the pain
with my catatonic eyes
glazed over with depression
seeing nothing but darker days ahead
filled with disease
and I feel so heavy

so fucking heavy

but no one knows
because damn it
I put on a good show
with a fake smile on my face
and I am all painted up to glow

so here I go

again
