Why Must I Continue?The softly swaying trees,Why Must I Continue?6 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
are reflected in my mind,
by sickly leafless branches,
bent and broken by the storm.
My nights I spend alone,
a world quiet by my choice.
The silence when the music fades,
is what I hold within my head.
No joy or sorrow wanders here,
in this frozen barren land,
my heart instead feels nothing,
but for a small and hidden fear.
Tomorrow holds a mystery,
which I wish not to know,
I'd rather my life be gently closed,
like an author finished with a book.
I seek not that I should die,
or any absurd thought like that,
rather, I wish my tale was over,
my past the completed story.
I don't want to go on read
Leaping FlamesFire raging through my heartLeaping Flames6 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
searing nerves and soul
Flames dance all around me
swaying to and fro
Love's a burning fire
it rages in the brain
and all you ever think about
is who ignited the flame
Passion hotter than the sun
can thaw a soul of stone
true loves fire burning bright
rays of light forth shone
The fires of the heart and soul
are not destruction based
they warm every inch of your being
from toes to rosey face

What if we gave it a shot?
I really need to stop saying that,
Because we both know it's not going to happen.
What if we could be happy together?
It doesn't matter now,
What's past is in the past for a reason.
What if it worked out?
Why even ask that,
We both know it won't.
What if I found someone else?
I think I might have,
And he's really cool.
But, What if it doesn't happen there?
Well.... Then life will go on,
Because I don't need a relationship to be happy.
