These are my poems from 2006-summer 2010. My poems since then can be found here: http: //www.poemhunter.com/r-l-allen/
Writing to me is like breathing. It's fundamental to life...and sometimes, like my breath, my poems are short and hurried - to the point. Other times they are long and calm and much more expressive.

Twilight Whispers Poems
Everybody dreams. Children dream, Adults dream, Old people dream.
A Love Now Lost
What was once a blossomed love, Now seems old and tired. You're not the person I used to know, The one I once admired.
I Am Where You Are
I am where the rainbows end The place where all the fairies send Their sugar and mending hearts.
Up in the sky I wonder why The clouds are fluffy and white.
A Better Day
The fire in the sky is burning The child in my heart is yearning As I learn the truth about you The wind is blowing through my soul
And There Was You
There was once a girl, she was like me She cried when she was sad She smiled when she was happy And shouted when she was mad.
Distance means so little when you love someone this much When you're dreaming of their smiling and their silkly gentle touch And the stars are shining in the sky and the moon is bright as such That we're hoping that we'll find a way to suddenly keep in touch
Sarah Teasdale Variation
It will not change now After only a year Time hasn't broken it With parting or tears
We should be catching snowflakes on our faces, Disappear into the North and feel our heart as it races, Sail through the snow and sing in the wind, Relishing the happiness this adventure would bring,
You read my thoughts through misty eyes, Like thunder threatens sunny skies,
Lost For Words
“What do I write? ” said the girl in pink. “My mind is tangled and I can’t seem to think! ” She threw down her pen and stormed out the room, Hoping she’d conjure up something soon.
Forget me not, Forget me never, Remember the memories We made together.
Cradling the Moon
I'm doing all I can to hold onto you, take my hand in yours and dance,
If You Love Me Let Me Go
'If you love me let me go' Do not tell me, I don't want to know Whilst the swings in my mind sway too and fro I am loving you dearly, but don't want to let go

Old people dream.
I dream, too.
I dream about the friends with whom I'll grow old,
I dream about the person whose hands I'll hold,
I dream about being young and in love,
I dream about loved ones, looking down from above.
I dream of the places I'll one day see,
I dream of being wild and free,
I dream of my house, high on the rocks,
I dream of the sand underneath my socks.
I dream of the people I'd love to greet,
I dream of the things I'll say when we meet,
I dream of hearing ...
