An Angel on this Field of Ice,
I hesitantly step on this,
Field of Ice.
This surface of ice,
It is but the most slippery,
Field of ice.
I try moving slowly,
On this surface of ice,
But my Crooked skates,
Knock me off balance.
As I start to fall,
For the very first time,
I accept help,
And In no time,
A hand catches me within the fall,
She catches me from my misery,
And helps me escape the pain,
Field Of Ice.
With the sweetest voice,
Asks me,"Are you OK?",
Even though I seem afraid,
I nod aimlessly,
While I reach for her fragile hand,
I grab her hand firmly,
With the the grip even death itself,
Knows to be too tight.
This grip is,
And Almost unbearable.
Even though it is so hard,
For her to bear,
She continues to hold my hand,
Helping me inch forward on this slippery,
Field of Ice,
At first we move slowly,
But our speed gradually increases,
She lets go,
Telling me, "I will be back"
I watch her c

No strokes of love nor scrawls of rage
Of yellowed white in candlelight
It speaks of naught but dust and age.
Fingerprints do smudge its face
Of tender touch when I would trace
Crisp cut edges long since frayed
While words of love within me stayed.
For now my eyes reflect its fate
Love bloomed within but spoke too late
And though frail fingers grip my quill
This ghostly page is empty still.
Whispered feelings lost to night
As phantom thoughts waltz out of sight
Failed; my heart in it's crimson cage
For here still lies this empty page...

But I have to go now
These beats are turning my head to jelly.
It's cold out here
But that's ok
I'm on my own again.
The streets are dark
The shops are empty
Everybody is with everybody else.
My eyes are stinging
The tears will not stop
The floor's getting closer.
It all looks different from down here
The sound of my name floats in the air
Everything is slowly, fading, black.
Gray--Gray2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Overshadowed by truth, overcome by lies
We feed the fire of demise
The world falls into the shadows' gray
Nothing left to do but pray
What will the children think of as they go to bed,
Pulling the covers up over their heads?
Do they know it might be their last goodnight?
The order of the world is never right
Misshapen by evolution
We live in life's endless delusion
Comforted simply by nightfall
When their shadows blend with mine
At night I'm not a trespasser
For all the grays combine
But when the sun arises
And colors start to form
It's then I am unwelcome
For one shadow is born
I sometimes feel envious
Of the world and its ways
I wish to find more people
Hiding their lifeless grays
As the sun starts to crest
Showing off golden light
I start to crumble away
Dying with another night
The sun peaks atop the mountain
And starts anew a phase
Of blessing the Earth with light
And conquering the grays.
If anyone can hear me
Please let yourself be known
It's not right for a shadow

I felt awful. Emma was still crying in her room with Ryan, Lilly was trying to keep calm, Rosaline was with the boys, trying to sort some things out, and Korey was watching me as if I was going to break any second. To be honest, I really didn't know what to do. We'd called the police after we found everything out, but Athena still didn't know.
"Korey!" I said, looking up at my boyfriend. "Do you want to tell Kevin about this?"
"Kalyia, are you ok?" he asked, sitting down beside me. "It's 1 am."
"Oh." I looked up at the clock and was shocked to see that he was right. "Maybe we should call them tomorrow."

Why is He here?
He looks at each one,
and with honesty in his eyes says,
"Hear my Love for you.
See my Love for you.
I am here to Save, not to judge."
Each person ceases
to question and begins
to see the light of the world
that was once consumed by darkness.

He was here before the earth began.
He is kind and compassionate.
He is powerful, so powerful that nothing is... impossible for... him.
He is so great and loving that he wants to have very a close relationship with us.

In the harshness of the cold.

the turmoil within.
When all has gone silent,
it's there I begin.
I am the eye,
watchful and calm.
The center of chaos,
the whispers of Psalm.
I am the victory,
over hail and grave,
Begging to mark you,
longing to save.
I am the breath,
that first fills you at birth
and the heartbeat that carries
the children of earth.
I am the crisp dawn,
brilliant and new.
Spelling my sentiments,
in teardrops of dew.
I am the morning.
An unfailing sun.
The one that will find you
wherever you run.
I am that I am,
from a faraway land.
And still every moment,
I'm right where you stand.
I am forever.
Above sky and under.
A voice in the oceans,
A whisper in thunder.

Oh, that's it.
I'm giving up.
I've done it all
But my best wasn't good enough.
I feel like cryin'
So sick of tryin'
And something inside is just dyin'
So I surrender to you
I've done all I could
I surrender to you
I did all I should
I can't carry myself any higher
I need you to rekindle this fire
You're my greatest protector, defender
So to you, oh to you...I surrender.
Well, I've had it.
I'm shutting the door.
I've fought the good fight
Then fought it some more.
The world is so dark and dreary
And I am so incredibly weary
That I'm sure I no longer see clearly
So, I surrender to you
I did try my best
I surrender to you
Though I failed my own test
I can't pick myself up off the floor
I don't even know what to ask for
And I wish my heart wasn't so tender
But to you, oh to you...I surrender.
Okay, that does it!
It seems I can't win!
I've had enough
Of always beginning again
I'm tired of being weak and wary
And being in a place so scary
It's a burden I no longer can carr
"The power of Prayer""The power of Prayer"4 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
Prayer is one of the strongest things in the world. It is so strong that it can save anoyone, a sick person who is close to dying on their death bed. One who is having a hard time and is in need of some help. It can heal the body of a crippled person who has been that way for years, it can heal a blind person and allow them to see again. But it only works for those that believe and have faith in that prayer. Prayer is so awesoe that when a whole community prays together you can feel its power within you working from the inside out. Prayer, its more then just asking God for things when you want it, it's where it allows you to draw closer unto Him rather then to use Him for what you desire most in life. Paryer it cna change a person's mind *way of thinking*, heart *the way you treat yourself and others around you*, actions* how we act when doing something*. The power of praying is something that can build up a person when he or she is feeling down. Everything else that is in this wo

Death of a Love.She hadn't moved from her window in over a day.Death of a Love.5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Watching for the impossible was something that she was content to do. It injected her with the faint hope that she might witness some of those precious memories once again. Maybe his decrepit old Clio, chugging along and spluttering to a grumbling stop right outside her house, or maybe the bicycle that he sometimes opted for instead, signalling his arrival with the ringing of a bell. It economised on both petrol and his nerves, he had always told her with a smile.
His smiles were gems. She had always watched in rapt fascination when his lips pulled back and curled upwards, his left cheek dimpling slightly when it lifted more than the other. His teeth were slightly crooked, the front two pushed back a little further than his incisors, always immaculately clean.
She shook her head, dragging her eyes from the unchanging scene outside. No point in dwelling on what was past, she tried to tell herself. Nothing can be done. He's gone.

Please forgive me and never leave me
Protect me to the end,be the light for my eyes
Be my path to the eternal Life!
When I can't cry,when I shouldn't show my tears
They anyway come down into the endless valley
and I cry inside
regreting my faults,searching someone by my side
Oh,how much I want to be under your wings
Give me the strength to follow you to the very end
as the ways to you are horribly difficult;
and the thoughts of you are deep and mystical...
My God forgive me my sins,because I've never
done them on purpose,
Because I regret them everyday more and more
Because my tears are falling and I've been calling
Your name,to withstand the pain of my heart,
Pain of sadness and sorrow.
God You be my hope and protect me with your
Never abandon me,as I'm nothing without You
You live in me,that's how I survive,
Be with me,to my right,so I can sleep without fear,
knowing You always will be near!

I was kid, lost to the wind.
I traveled on bare feet,
With these clothes on my back.
But even then I was totally happy.
I got my Bible and my dog.
Walking down these streets,
Not knowing where I'd sleep.
But I did not care,
I got my Bible and my dog.
From home to home I went.
'Cause always I had to leave,
For they didn't accept what I had to bring.
They told me to toss them like the spring.
But I could not part, with that which I loved.
I got my Bible and my dog,
Protecting me from the devils thieves.
One guarding me with the Word of truth,
The other fending me from evil men.
I'm safe, that there's no doubt.
Even when I'm on the streets,
As long as I got,
My Bible and my dog.
