Biography of Alex Walker
I have always felt a passion to write poetry. Writing poetry helps to express all of the feelings that I bottle up, and makes me feel much better. I also enjoy writing stories, though I'm not very good at writing them. I hope to, in the future, have a book of poetry published, and a novel published.
I play the piano, alto and tenor saxophones, and I play some clarinet. I am in the process of learning violin and flute. I find that music is one of the greatest forms of expression, if you use it correctly.
I hope to one day be able to write something in the, 'Published Books, ' section on this page, but until then, I'll stick with submitting some poetry.
Alex Walker Poems
If I Were You And You Were Me!
If I were You and You were Me! If I were you and you were me, What would I see?
I have a bad case of writer's block, so I keep watching the clock. Hoping for an idea to show, wanting these words to flow.
Distrust and hate are my feelings toward you, I see in your eyes that you feel this way too. The fire in your eyes tells of something new, A plan has been hatched towards an innocent two.
Everyday I stare at the clouds in the sky, wondering why that I'm so shy. I want to say these words to you, because for years they have been so true.
Sonnet 1 - Love Unknown
You take my breath when you smile, you stop my heart when you look my way. I've felt this way for a while, but still there is not a word I can say.
'Love' Is An Idea.
I can see it now, your face in my mind.
Where am I? Am I in the sky? I am not here, and I am not there.
I’m falling down, from the highest building. As I begin my fall, I shine out like the city lights. I feel you, watching me, like I am one of those beautiful lights. I want you to reach out and grab me, make me your light.
The last poem I wrote, ended on a sad note. So I thought I'd write one more, that the reader might adore.
I'm not okay, no, not today. I'm terribly sad, and a bit mad.
Forever frozen in place am I, as still and quiet as a night-time sky. In a time of peace and serenity, forever frozen is this sweet entity.
I Remember When...
I remember when my life wasn't great, when darkness and despair was my fate. When life seemed so hard, and all I had was the 'death card.'
The arms reach out from the darkness I see, The hands stretch farther beckoning to me... Light is gone from this place of obscenity, Darkness goes on from miles to infinity.
As sunlight shines out from the barren sky, I sparkle and glitter as I slowly die. Drip after drip, I begin to fade away, Only wishing that I could stay.
The arms reach out from the darkness I see,
The hands stretch farther beckoning to me...
Light is gone from this place of obscenity,
Darkness goes on from miles to infinity.
This dark-lit place of no return,
Is full of things that my heart yearns.
I step closer and closer to the edge of nothing,
While remembering the face of the one I'm loving.
