Amanda Lukas Poems
... And When She'D
...And when she would smile and tell me that it was okay to cry, I'd cry in her arms and know I was loved.
Daddy never knew me. He never took the time. Never came to birthday parties. Never recited a nursery rhyme.
(16) When He Sleeps
I see his sleeping eyes in the moonlight. He is beauty in his sleep. I know he'll awaken and hate me; I've gotten in too deep.
(11) Kissing My Tears Away
He holds me while I cry and flashes gentle loving glances as he looks into teary brown eyes. He explains them as 'beautiful'
(.6) Mending A Broken Heart
I sometimes wish we'd never met and life was whole without you, but then I catch myself thinking of those succulent kisses
A Desperate Heart
A desperate heart, tattered and torn and forgotten. Stomped and grinded into concrete of her life.
(13) Thunderstorms And Butterflies Don'...
You say you love me and you believe it. I say you don't even know who I am. You're in love with the image of me that you created.
(20) Darling, Please Don'T Stay
Don't speak. Your face says too many words. Don't give me that forced smile. I've seen your attempts to look warm before.

Because Christmas was her favorite holiday. I remember laughing with her while wrapping the oddly-shaped presents she'd bought at K-Mart.
(10) Throwing Out Your Shoebox Of Memo...
You can have your memories. I'll put them in a shoebox for your disposal. Keep them with you, and do as you please with them
(19) A Long List Of To-Do's (And A Cou...
My list of things to do just seems to keep growing longer. Keep your office clean, make Bill's coffee stronger
(.7) If I Could
If I could make you happy, Then I would gladly stay. If I could bring you a smile so huge As on children when they play.
A Life Not Worth Living?
A life not worth living, you say? An unbelievable toll! Talents not worth using must mean songs not worth singing,
(15) Wishing I Could See Your Face
I haven't forgotten that look in your eyes, the way you cocked your head to the side when you laughed. I can't let go of
I owe my every effort to
Her love, everlasting and true.
In her silence, I am able to speak
and see all things beautiful.
She never left me.
She isn't gone.
I walk in solitude,
but never alone.
The angel watches me.
