Invisible

A Poem

June 2

Would you even notice?
 Would you even care?
 Would you even wonder,
 If she wasn’t there?

That girl in the background,
 On whom you depend.
 The girl hiding behind,
 Just looking for an end.

You’re surrounded by people,
 You don’t even look round,
 Will you even see her,
 When she hits the ground.

I know you don’t care,
 No, not deep down,
 You just leave her sitting there,
 With her worried frown.

She Said

She Said

A Poem

She said that I was stupid,
She said she didn’t care.
She said that I was on my own,
That I wasn’t self aware.

She said that she loved me,
She said that she knew,
She made me tell all my secrets,
All my tales of woe.

Then one day she left me,
She just turned and walked away.
She didn’t even look back,
On that dark, dark day…

The Bridge

The Bridge

A Poem

It comes to mind,
In darkest of times,
A place to go
To make everything end.

The pain to stop,
The hurt to cease,
The memories that make,
Her so ill at ease.

She can’t go there,
Or she’ll be nowhere,
She has to resist,
Pain that’s too much to bear.

Things will look different,
When another day is spent,
In time she’ll feel better,
Her life will depend.

Pageant

A Poem Of The Self

Photo by Samuel Zeller on Unsplash

A vision of perfection,
The mask is put in place,
Bright smile now pasted on,
She hopes it’s not a waste.

The darkness crashes in,
She’s lost, and all alone,
Yet coming from within,
She’s toppled from her throne.

The old ones never tell,
Eyes unseeing, see,
They say that all is well,
But it will not ever be.

She fell and now she falls,
Freely breaking down,
She won’t go to the ball,
But sits there with a frown.

Tears will flow down cheeks,
And her beautiful dress is crumpled,
She’s been sad for weeks,
She’s broken, trodden, trampled.

Sunshine and rainbows,
Bright, happy smiles on faces,

For some, it’s easy
To lift their hands and praise Him,
Yet, is it sincere?

Honesty

Honesty

A Poem

It seems so simple,
It looks so easy,
Just tell the truth,
It’ll all be breezy.

Betrayal hurts,
And lies do too,
Whether they come,
From me, or you.

So try to be honest,
And try to be kind,
So that friends,
Can stay friends.

Then everything mends.

Standing on the edge,
The very verge of consciousness,
Reality slips away,
I take step after step.

A writer without,
A terrible place to be,
Not a single word.

Faith

Faith

A Poem

We put our faith in many things,
Some seem simple; barely kings,
Lights that switch on,
And chairs we sit on,
But still we struggle to put faith in,
The Father God; our King of Kings.
