Jem Solley Poems
You can hear their cries at night, You hear them, and put them out of minds sight, Don't want to face it, No you can't embrace it,
Because I saw you today.
I am fine, I was walking down this street, I was happy on my own, There was no one I needed to meet,
House, not home
My house is not my palace, This town is but a shell of my old memory, Crumbling to the ground like gravel, Please someone grant me free,
I am the she, who does dare to enter, The she who dares to fight, The she who dares conquer fear, Flaming through the dark night,
The last kiss
The train pumps smoke, The ashes of earths misery, A frail woman,26, Mouse hair as much as her personality,
6 Years Old and Wondering
Oh my- I hold myself growing, They said it would happen, But it seemed but a myth, Six years old, wondering about the day I would be older,
Street Toddlers Of 1888
Here me, street children, Its 1888, Circle Whitechapel, don't go far, Or quick Jack will seal your fate,
My Sister Satan
I wont take this all back, this day I won't rue, For I did not do this from my own record, but Lucy told me to, Lucy was my little sister, two years younger than myself, Gorgeous blonde curls she had, and pointed ears, like a little elf,
Happily Ever After
When I was little, nothing mattered, not even my looks, And when I believed all my fairy tale books, 'The couple fell in love, and lived in kisses and laughter, They moved into a huge castle and then they all lived happily ever after'
The star that once shone
The star that once shone, Is torn from its so loved home, Arrested for nothing, no crime commited, Captured from where they once so freely roam,
The closest to love I have ever come to
Oh those eyes. When you walked up to my positioning, My hands numbed in the cold, Like ice cubes in boiled water,
Please come home: (
I used to guess who you were, For we were dangerous strangers, And the holes in my life, Left me crippled by previous breakers,
Snow is here, And so is he. Lesson five, What a bore, PE,
The Story Of A Predator (And The Awaited...
The beyond broad moor. The stale happiness that laid on the set before, The good old days, the strange bizarre man, Vulnerable hearts, lead to the promised land,

You can hear their cries at night,
You hear them, and put them out of minds sight,
Don't want to face it,
No you can't embrace it,
That when you go past that road where you last saw her,
She will no longer be there that street girl, that pauper,
But what can we do?
It's not my business so "shoo! "
Why should we care?
Their only street children that are worse for wear,
But deep down it should hurt you,
Can't you feel that feeling just that little bit blue?
For the lonely child who curl up cold at night,
Who lives and terror, fear and ...
