Random Poem:

Heavens In Her Smile

Rushes swept through me,
as she graced my life,
rushes devour me now,
she's not by my side.
I just wanted somebody,
that no one would take,
I can't describe the feelings,
When my love she did forsake
If hearts bleed, then let them.
No forgives in me resides.
If tears fall in solitude, (I don't care),
For darkness is my bride.
Heaven's in her smile,
though painful to me.
Heaven's in her smile,
For all to see.
If love knows no boundaries,
and shows no hate,
If heaven's graced with angels,
then,this is my escape.
My sorrow engulfs me
Her beauty so rare
My soul is in turmoil
I long for her there
If you read this my angel,
you'll know I have gone.
If you read this my darling
It's to you I belonged.
My spirit departed.
You shattered my dreams.
My love is all around you,
in the sun's golden beams.
