For The Scarred Ones
Inspiration comes from so many places
Maybe in the whispers of the mildest winds,
Dancing in the raindrops, hidden in strange faces.
Maybe in the sweetness of angels or in the danger of sins.
A kiss can tell a story; a heart can bury love.
A scar can be inside or outside, anyone can see
Whether emotions come from somewhere dark or lights up above,
Stars and scars scrape our minds, forcing us to breath.
Walking hands together, still walking alone;
Sharing everything and nothing about different paths.
Roads merge and separate because of sticks and stones,
The loving touch of life, or a distant lover's wrath.
Shape and size means so little yet inflicts in so many ways.
It's not surprising that a wound can be invisible and give away so much.
Take the time to share the beauty of life; the pain and anger; love and lust.
Look into the eyes of the world, the scarred ones have golden hearts in souls that can not be touched.

What Happens Now
There was a time when caring about others
Was as easy as hearing, seeing and breathing.
Waving to a passerby like he was your brother,
The smile on your face echoed in the words you were speaking.
It used to be natural to help out a stranger
People didn't take the common man for granted;
Never thinking there could be any danger
In sharing kindness; open hearted and open handed.
There's a new way of life that's emerging,
These things changed without a warning,
We base humanity on charm, wealth and surface beauty.
What happens now? Humanity is in mourning.
We know the difference in the ways we live ,
Whether it's comfortable, poor , wealthy or in disastrous need;
Helping our fellow man should never be a burden.
We spend too much time categorizing others with what we watch , hear and read.
The way things were and what happens now
Are two very different things
Cruelty and coldness creates separation among people;
While a smile and a helping hand can sprout wings.

Darkness Descends
I see it there where the water meets the horizon,
The world is fading quickly away,
The sun is not setting but the moon is rising.
Every single shadow has gone astray.
Everything is different, yet still the same,
The day is wildly bright, seemingly exotic,
Silently bold, the crisp and natural flow.
Such a contradiction in itself. Dim, pure and erotic.
The excitement is so sound, the quiet is so loud ,
Yet mild and passive, almost painstaking.
Not a diamond ring burst yet, the light fades out.
It's incredible, the star speckled night. It's breathtaking.
A natural part of existence, a totally normal response.
When in the middle of the day, the daylight ends.
The fear, the patience, the exhilaration, the anticipation.
The sun and moon converse over water, and for a moment darkness descends.

Lost Love Letter
Yes, I know your taken
And I have no right to say this
But I need you now more than ever.
You shine a light inside my soul
The strongest love I've ever known.
Over time it's only grown.
Can't I just tell you I need you
No one knows how much I love you.
We should never have been torn apart.
You hold all the pieces of my broken heart.
It should be you and me together,
I hope someday you'll read this, my lost love letter.
No one knows how I long to touch you.
What I wouldn't give just to hold you.
There's nothing more I'd rather do,
Than be the one you come home to.
I know it's wrong but I want you to know
I don't want to love you, but I can't let you go.
How can I ever make you see
Everything that's buried inside of me.
The cruelty of life took you away from me
The memory of you just won't let me be.
I'm writing this so you'll know it's true,
You're a part of me. I can't win but I still lose.

I am a 37 years old homeschooling mom from the U.S. I love art of all types and create multiple types of art in multiple styles. My favorite thing to do besides teaching is grinding pictures on glass and drawing. Poetry is an important part of my life. But my absolute favorite thing after teaching is singing. I look forward to meeting many fellow artists on here.
