Biography of Elizabeth Sheaffer
I write for myself. I'm a selfish writer... I write to express what I feel inside, what I hide away when the sun drives away the night's serene cover... I write the words I cannot express in daylight, the words I can never speak aloud... I write to make sense of myself and of the world around me. I write for release.
Elizabeth Sheaffer Poems
Alone In The Crowd
Sitting at a desk in a brightly lit room, Surrounded by people, but still so alone... Fighting a feeling of impending doom; A chill in the room that cuts to the bone.

Life's catastrophe Mental apathy Feeling empty, Lost, and dazed.
And The Storm Rages On

More Than An Embrace
For the first time in nearly two weeks, I saw your face today. You smiled when you saw me, And pulled me so close,
The time of your arrival draws e'er nearer. I look to the west in search of your face. None others' words would I hold dearer, Than thine own as my name escapes.
Affliction Most Severe (I'M Letting Go)
My body lies broken, bleeding on the floor, The very image you once claimed to abhor. But this is what you wanted, to witness all these tears. Isn't this, for so long, that which you longed to hear?
Tainted Future (Ruinous Deeds)
Your fingertips graze across my skin... Soft lips gently caress my warm flesh... Exquisite pleasure building within... A sinful lust you can't hold back...
The Last Resort
Tears well up, threatening to o'erspill these blackened lashes. Blackened; That's what society calls fashion. Little girls playing in mother's make-up. Wind, whispering through bright, green-leaved trees.
Must poems always be about love, or hate?
Must they always mention God, or fate?
I want to write a poem that's new
But something you can still relate to.
There once was a bird, sitting upon a limb.
A small, baby bird; his mother behind him.
He peered o'er the nest, to the ground far below.
