Random Poem:


Life and feelings sink in
Like needles puncturing my skin
Everything dies in front of me
I black out; I can't see
Waiting for this all to end
A soft blow from the wind
The incoherent patience
The indulging pride
The scared face upon the fence
With eyes that sparkle so dark
In the gleaming eyes of another
In the field of a grassy park
All the dreams of a mother
Fall so gracefully
Gracefully down...down
Down the hill so gradually
A young girl scrapes her knee
She feels the pain sink in
Like needles puncturing her skin
