From Me

July 30, 2007

If you see a sunset, it’s me, smiling From behind it. If I go away far, and you see a star If you find it, I’m inside it. You can fold it, and hold it forever, If you hide it. If our words and worlds sever — if ever I lose you; If two thousand […]

Do You Ever Wish

Do you ever wish To paint your life In black and white, And hang some sad nostalgic music in the back, And put it on a TV screen For men in future years to see And say, “This must have been The way things used to be …” Do you ever walk the street And […]

Creator

Neath a shrouded midnight star, Blinded by the blackened road, Riding endlessly and far Where the wind is hard and cold, By the river, long and deep, Where the wicked willows blow, Ill with pain and wanting sleep Where the frozen waters flow, Rider of the raging sea Roamer where the rivers roll, Weaver of […]

Remember

When I no longer stand here by your side, At night beneath the moonlit milky way; When I no longer kneel with you and pray, And swear to you with stern, unshaking pride That I will never travel far away… When I my faithful promises betray, And on the far side of the earth I […]

Half a Hemisphere Away

Half a hemisphere away I hear the things You do not say. I hear the thundering of your heart. It tears my life and soul apart. It echoes in my head and ears, I tremble on the bed in tears, I see you sitting, far, alone, Silent like a block of stone, With your head […]

Yellow

Hunger conquers. Love considers. As life concedes and pain bewilders. Anguish strips us of our shielding. Cold. Relentless. Ever-wielding. Yet we let the anguish pass Forget, and hide amongst the mass. Even I who swore to never Seek cold comfort, cruel forever; Even I found yellow rest, In the days upon my nest, Long descended […]

Blue Balloons

Into the captivity of your heart, We let our blue balloons depart; Into the twilight of the sky. Into the night. Where our shadows still fly. Three years later, too far from the sea, Having escaped, having broke free, No longer a lone poet, surrounded by boors, I felt a lone virgin, surrounded by whores. […]

Riding My Bike

My wheels don’t seem to touch the road As I fly through the wind. When I look down, The road flashes by. When I look up, The world is slow motion again, And I swerve a corner, Almost floating. – Written by Anna V. Williams at age 10 Barnstable, Massechusetts
