AnnaLeigh Jones Poems
I Know How To Lie
You say you know me. You think you do. But you've forgotten; I know how to lie.
I've been living inside your perfect lie a thousand years too long. I can't escape, I dont remember the truth which opens the door.
When he is in my audience My voice will tremble. If he is among those hearing me, My bow on the strings will tremble.
How I Was So Naive
Oh daddy, let's play hide and seek. Start counting to ten, but don't peek. I'll hide under my bed while you and mommy talk a little too loud. Daddy, please don't find me yet.
The Bird Shouldn'T Have To Fly South
The birds fly south at the autumns chilly end, but the black dove can never return to her northern home again.
To Be A Wave
I wish I were only a wave... Forming... Rising... Beautiful...
If my heart had wings and could fly away, it would fly to you and with you it would stay.
Knock Knock. Who's there? Me. Me who?
Stare at the floor and don't be seen. You can take this, You can take anything. Stay strong, you child, you've shed too many tears.
The First And The Last
The first day, the last tear: Reality, non-existant. The first step, the last hope: Tortured by sheer distance.
Should I Drink?
For a hundred years I've wandered in the dessert. No food, no water, No meat for slaughter. My husband left nothing to sustain me for now or forever.
Here's your chance; Save me. Don't let this break me. You're the only one I know who still wants to be my hero.
My Name Is...
My name is shadow, the captive silhuette upon the wall. I live the echos of the dead, the silent, the heros and their fall. They whispered 'Can anybody see me? ' They wondered 'Why can't they hear me scream? '
Time To Give Up On You
I let you lose yourself, my friend, so you could find the man you lost. Well, have you found him yet? Of corse not.
Dear AnnaLeigh, I must tell you,
you don't have a chance.
You're spinning around like a fool
trying to master lifes petty dance.
The steps you are taking are all wrong.
You're dancing to a different beat.
It's time for you to give it up
and learn to accept defeat.
