this is something I wrote while it was slow at work the other night. it's nothing special:
Spinning, spinning, spinning.
Can't stop these circles,
Can't stop this racing.
Heart is pounding.
Breath is ragged.
Time is fleeting.
Butterflies are beating.
New and lovely.
The feeling is blossoming.
It's like fresh air,
Or a new lightbulb;
The same, but not quite.
It's a blood rush
And a fleeing of pain.
My Dad's Place
Each day I drive past my dad's place.
My respects I never stop to pay.
Life drives me past at such a hectic pace,
Like there's never enough time in the day.
It's a beautiful site for a manor:
Green lawns roll for as far as eye can see;
Wrought iron stretches between brick pillars;
Arches, gates, asphalt roads inviting me.
The shrubs are all shaped, neatly trimmed and green.
No signs of clutter, no trace of debris.
As tidy and peaceful as ever I've seen:
No disorder, not a leaf from a tree.
I recall, last time we parted, he smiled.
Between us there was never much to say.
Now I regret that. Even as a child
Seems like never enough time in the day.
So now, each day, I drive past my dad's place.
I see row after row of white granite.
And I know as the tears stream down my face,
One of those stones has his name on it.
I wrote this poem called This Love....
Empowers me, moves me
Cool fresh ocean breeze
Like calmness of raindrops
Sweet honey in tea
Further than the horizon
Your love breathes
Warm scent of vanilla
Smooth soft velvet touch
Your soul dances through me
In one glance you’re my crush
My comfort, companion
Equivalent of me
Robust and resilient
Constantly mounting to higher degrees
Completely unparallel of anyones dreams
A connection within
Strong union is shared
Affluent with pleasure
Incomplete paths have crossed
Souls intertwined deeply
Without love would be lost
The tears flow from the eyes of depression
A deep red purple stains the ground
The world becomes dark and heart becomes cold
She tries to find a light in the darkness, but she only sees her shadow
She remembers when she stood in the light and tries to recall when she fell
But she can’t.
She is exhausted by her thoughts and has lost any will to figure them out.
Her sadness floats around like a lost drifting soul
Misery is her companion, one which has no need to speak
She no longer sees color,
No longer hears laughter.
She no longer tries to feel anyone or anything
The tears are empty now-the world is a tranquilizing calm
Nobody sees what she holds in her mind
Nobody sees her curled up in the corner
Nobody heard her cry.
Nobody heard her beg.
Nobody noticed when she stopped showing up, or checking in or following through
What sadness it is to lose a life, it is so personal when it is your own
She no longer wants the answers to the questions she once asked.
She no longer believes in hope or in dreams
She sits alone now in her eternal hell, never knowing, never realizing that the world is more that the shades of dust and gray.
I see her sitting, as tears flow and deep red purple stains the ground.
I helped her up from the corner
I now know what she held in her mind
Hold out my hand, hear her cry, feel her sadness in my soul.
She no longer needs misery-I will help her speak
Please don’t cry those empty tears
I want to help you see.
The world is a wind storm, of more than shades of dust and gray
There is light on the darkest of days,
Take my hand I will walk with you until you are able to find your own way.
She no longer sits alone in an eternal hell.
She sees color in the deepest shades of dust and gray.
She feels her thoughts and sees her dreams, and I can hear her speak.
I'd like to share one of my poems. I'm a writer, I have a website www.janiepoetry.com
This is Faith
Faith don't desert me in my darkest hour
Faith pick me up, for hope has abandoned me
Faith come back to me, for I am in need
I wish you to come to me in effortless fancy
Swiftly and quietly, hurry I beg....
For I fear that doubt surrounds me
I have tried to do right and it has given me a broken heart
So where do I start?
I know I must pick up
I know I must get dressed
I know I must go on
I am so tired, yet I can not sleep
I am heart broken, yet I can not cry
I give my troubles to you
and I will wait for you
to turn them into joy and light

Click through my poetry hubs,
let me know which one you like the best!
Out of touch with the world...
Trying to hide inside so I don't hurt.
The little girl inside me with her mouth wide open
screaming with grief and heartache.
A soundless scream full of pain, broken dreams
a house blown away by the storm.
She's crying out to you. Why don't you hear her…see her…hold her.
You don't want to look beyond your need, you left
Who was there to teach her, her worth? Who told her
she was special to them? Who showed her what
a strong woman she would be?
She looked to herself as she grew to be me.
In spite of you I found my own worth. In spite
of you I became special to someone. In spite of
you I learned to be a strong woman.
But, no matter the moments between then and now..
that little girl that you left behind abandoned, hurting
and alone cries out.
Then out of the darkness He holds me. He whispers you are
not alone. You are my child, I made you and I've been with
you. Those times you cried I dried your tears, those times
you wished your mama would see you I saw your pain. It's time
to let go, I will take care of the ache in your heart. Don't
grasp so tight to broken dreams..let it go and in it's place I
will give you the stars. Your happiness is with me, I've made
you and I will not leave you, you are my princess and peace and
love is my gift to you. No matter what the world throws at
you, good or bad I will provide you with the strengh to go on.
Because, my love is everlasting and nothing can tear us apart...
With a sigh I let go and just let God......
