Biography of Claire Boyette
My name is Claire. I am 23 year old currently living in Missiouri. My life has been very difficult from a young age but I have survived. My poems are usually messages to someone currently in my life, or someone who was in my life. I usually write my poetry on a whim and then edit it later. Well thats about it...
Claire Boyette Poems
Wake Up Call
You go around spreading your poison and your lies, You try to put your self image in other innocent eyes, When the truth is, you're the one you truly despise.
So Tell Me
You told me you loved me, Told me you’d always be there, So tell me something… Why aren’t you here?
You walked up to me when you saw me crying, Little did you know, I felt like dieing. Who knew when you walked up to me in that moment of strife, You’d be walking into my life?
Why do you confuse me so? Why does the touch of your hand, set my skin afire? Why do I long to feel your lips brush mine? Why all of a sudden have you become my one desire?
I stand at the edge of the cliff, Looking down, I hear two voices speak as if they know what I’m thinking, One says “Do it and all will be forgotten.” The other says “Do it and all will be lost.”
The feel of the cool steel on my flesh, The roughness of the edge pressing into my skin, Oh how I long to feel that again…
The voice that once soothed me, Now causes me nothing but pain.
I stand at the edge of the cliff,
Looking down, I hear two voices speak as if they know what I’m thinking,
One says “Do it and all will be forgotten.”
The other says “Do it and all will be lost.”
I close my eyes as tears begin to burn through them,
I cover my ears to try and drown out the voices but they do not silence,
The first one says “No one would notice.”
The other says “Many will be distraught.”
