Biography of Leigh Ladd
I have been up & down the roller coaster. I had alot to write about, at one point, obviously. It's a good release for me. Things are still rough every so often, but I think I'm finally on that upward climb because I really haven't had much to write about, or at least feel the need to air my thoughts to others. That could be a good or bad, but I'm sure there will come a day when I will have something I need to express & thankful there are all of you here on this site that will listen, so to speak. Anyway, I feel each & every one of you are wonderful people for sharing your wealth of words. All of you are very beautiful writers & I enjoy reading your poems.
Leigh Ladd Poems
Sleep, sleep, Come my way. Let me sleep, So I can start a new day.
The coma came and I wanted to shout, I want out and then they came, The dreams of death that made me feel ashamed.
A Simple Answer
There are so many questions about love, But it is a simple answer, really. Some guard against it, Others fake it completely.
The Best Of Me
You brought out the best in me, Things I didn't know I had. You brought that smile, I had lost it for awhile.
I lost my grasp On all that I restricted. Misplacing control over my thoughts and feelings, Now everyone knows too much.
I Told You So
I told you this would happen, You had better watch your step. But I wasn't good enough, And now with what are you left?
Am I Being Mean?
Hey bitch, this poem is for you. What's that, you itch? Gee, I haven't a clue. Maybe you're allergic to my man's glue.
I'M Done With You
Don't let your ego grow inflated, I'm done with you, The memory of you has become abated.
I'm not naive and I'm not dumb, I see you standing there with your gun. You wanted what was best and what was mine, But in the end only your own death you will find.
You think I'm a bitch, You think I'm the whore. Just remember one thing, I always settle the score.
As It Rains
You look at me and smile, I take your hand for guidance. We walk across the shaky bridge, I'm so scared and you seem so confident.
What Do You See?
Fleeting moments, Delusions of grandeur. Tell me the last thing you saw Before you went under.
Inside Of Me
In the deepest, darkest crevasses of my mind, I get lost and I get sleepy. I am searching and digging, What I am looking for is there.
I depended on you for all that you are, The little things you used to do are now very far. You know what makes me happy, The smiles and the laughter,
The coma came and I wanted to shout,
I want out and then they came,
The dreams of death that made me feel ashamed.
Ashamed that I had to make the decision,
Who should live, who should die,
Just as long as it was not I.
The battle plagued on for days and days,
