what i write

what i write is what i see
visions dance in front of me
tears that flow and pain that kills
memories that haunt me still


death and life and shadow forms
creepy lights behind closed doors
nightmares flash across my eyes
my words convey my dreadful fright


sorrow pain and misery
come to life as readers read
painting pictures with keyboard strokes
through my pen images flow


love and laughs and even hope
sometimes appear not often though
the dark and pain steal the lines
and suppress my light so it cant shine


a structured verse set to time
my emotions dance through my rhymes
visions move in front of me
and what i write what i see

sometimes we struggle through the dark until we find our own light... so I just want to say, you definitely have your own light - keep shining to light your way out :)

thank you very much red

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
