Leah Ayliffe Poems

Distant bells open my eyes
Bringing me back to where i am
My dream now lost in my mind
I'm awake as I'll ever be

To wander in the distance, over a petal of a rose
In deep thought of what has been
Or what has not
Drifting in an ocean that hugs earths’ surface for eternity

The mundane talk around me makes me want to die
I cry tears of crystal, clear and majestic 
Sparkling in the moonlight
I can't handle staying here in this mediocre world when I'm soaring past the stars in my heart 

my biggest secret,

and saddest song,

Beside the clouds I can clearly see
I'm not flying away, but towards a truer me
Sunshine in the dirt, life in the rain
Yesterday stores away a far off distant pain

Vegas, notorious as the city of sin,
My sweet city of paradise,
Where all can play in sinful delight.
Towering hotels and painted palm trees

You went missing in the autumn
where were you hiding?
I loved to call you
for you to come running

In the morning
It's so cold
In the morning
We whisper hello

In your office and fancy business suit
You flash a smile that I hardly knew
It carried an air of emptiness
And yet you promised dear lord it was true

When I speak of love
I go back to when we were kids
It was in those times
Where I let me heart live

When I dream at night,
I see stars of youthful times.
Hello golden gates,
On a cloud world paved to heaven.

Read the news today
Black and white stains of yesterday
Sunshine with blue skies
Smiling at me

I think it's the places I've been
or the people I've known,
that led me to find
I'm not alone.

Hide away
Lock the doors
Too tangled in being dangerous
Liquor, drugs, sex, notoriety in the fall

When dreams are like sunlight
in the fields at spring,
Wandering down the open road
on a strangers bicycle.

Do you ever think of me
when you're walking down the street
talking with the friends you like,
not waiting by the telephone.

Wake up every morning
Not sure about today
Does the sun rise outside your window
Or is your sky the last to see shades of gray?

If I were to die this moment
Know I lived life well.
I dreamed my way to heaven's door
I dreamed, I lived, I soared.

I am running back to the place
To the land where it all began.
You say that it's where I belong
Hell-bent to find the promise land.

I like you a lot.
You let me be entirely free,
Unwind my mind and deepest fantasies.
Just one taste of your poison

The Best Poem Of Leah Ayliffe

Peace In Lonliness

Distant bells open my eyes
Bringing me back to where i am
My dream now lost in my mind
I'm awake as I'll ever be
I walk the crowded streets at dawn
Each step mocking a sound
A reminder that I'm alone
Lonliness is not so bad
There's room to breathe,
to hear yourself think
Company can be a heavy burden
A red apple catches my eye
i steal a bite and savour its taste
i stop to smile at the children at the park
They giggle, leaving a shadow of innocent laughter
I want to weep but instead i sigh
Life will bring them down soon enough
I walk through my front door
Home again,
The silence has never been so golden
