Melanie Walendowsky Baker


I'm so determined
I have no idea how,
but I need to leave this place -
it has to be now.

Impatience grows
with every single tear.
But I'm so very determined
to conquer my fear.

I don't want to stay
where pain is rampant.
Determination comes in though
when nothing else can't.

It just needs to leave me
this agonising rage.
I'm determined, however,
to start a new page;

with no one to need
and just me alone.
I'm determined, I am,
to be alone on my own.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
