I started writing when I was in high school. Many of my poems back then were very dark and depressing. I gave up on it for many years and have now returned with a new view. Love is so much better then depression, though I have felt both. My dream is to one day write free lance for greeting cards. Although, structure and wording can be different, if you write from the heart I do not think you are wrong in what you write.
My husband of 11 years and my beautiful children are my inspirations. As are the people whose hearts you can see, even when others can't. My words are my gifts to them. I hope they bring comfort, joy and hope to others as well.
Here we are, worlds apart,
Our lives in two directions,
One will search for the hope,
The other for love's resurrection.
Underneath what is not said,
In our hearts and in our heads,
Unspoken words whisper in the breeze,
What is shared between you and me.
I sit here in silence,
a tear rolls down my face.
As I am starting to feel lost
and my life so out of place.
I am looking over the endless ocean
wondering where I now belong.
I once had an unconditional love
but it is now gone.
