Poetry

Chapter 1

Darling, I see you smile at me

You're smiling lights my very soul

I just want you to know you had me at 'Hello'

You are my courage

When we are apart I am lost

I seek shelter in your warm embraces

The storms around me can never enter

In your arms I know I am complete

Everyone before you was never good enough

I don't see anything after you

You look at me

You encourage me to keep fighting

Fighting a battle that you had all along

I am a dreamer, but if my dreams are our communication

I can live another moment in this paradise

Please don't wake me up, I don't want to leave this meadow

A meadow where our hearts, and souls are together forever

I can see you in my dreams

Never aging, barely over the years

When I frown that is because I failed you

I failed you in many ways

I took time that could never be gotten back

I thought it was more fun in greener pastures

But the grass is dying rapidly

Dying leaving me with only a shattered heart

A heart full of hopes that may never come

Hopes that I fear will never live again

Only in my dreams I am myself

I see you, and I am one of you

But now I feel so lost and alone

But I can blame no one else but myself

I got caught in a trap

A web of lies

Now I am just a willing dreamer

Dreaming things that are forever out of my grasp

Please forgive me, you don't have to like me, I just ask for your forgiveness

Then maybe this string of nightmares will end and I will once again gain acceptance.

Richard D. Cooper: I wish I could write poetry like this. It's clever because it also tells a story, too. I like the flow of it, the way sentences slip together as they should. Very good indeed. I have also started to read your others works, and will review them when finished. Keep going. Never stop.

crissy: Awesome work. The characters are so beautifully flawed and easy to relate to. The protagonist Bethany Hill is a woman that I would definitely want to meet in real life. The author has managed to make me visualize the story like a movie. The two time frames of past and present are also so beautifu...
