Around The Corner

Posted: February 27, 2014 in POETRY 2013 -

Sky is pure blue,
Sun shining so bright.
Birds sing in trees above,
It’s warmer today.

More people venture out,
Their faces happier.
Colours turning more vibrant,
Spring is just around the corner.

Down Then Up

Posted: February 24, 2014 in POETRY 2013 -

Been down for a while,
Couldn’t care at all.
Nothing matters much,
Just want to cry.

In between period,
Giving a hoot, then not,
Feeling kind of better,
Then suddenly woeful.

Picking up once more,
Happiness hits in force.
Being jolly and laughing,
Back to normal again.

Brain shut off,
No thought will creep.
And nothing else,
Must disturb my sleep.

Head is blank,
Mindset so strong.
Will get some shut eye,
But for how long?

The Final Goodbye

Posted: February 22, 2014 in POETRY 2013 -

Had enough now,
Not getting through.
This has gone on too long,
So guess it is done.

Whatever has happened,
May be put right.
You just don’t want to know,
May as well give in.

Mind is made up,
There’s no going back.
Am beginning to face it’s,
The final goodbye.

Gone without a trace,
Not talking to anybody.
Ignoring calls and messages,
Rejecting people.

Where are you now?
No one really knows.
Just vanished from sight,
For reasons of your own.

A feeling of excitement,
Nerves shot to pieces.
Wondering the outcome,
How it’s going to pan out.

Trembling through fear,
Not knowing what to expect.
Jittering and fidgeting,
Bumbling words spoken out loud.

Gradually getting calmer,
Anxiety starts to wane.
Inner peace now surrounds,
Well being appears once more.
