Samantha Schenk Poems
I walk down the hall with people all around me. I look at nothing for there is nothing to see. No one says hello to me because no one really cares.
The looks exchanged, those knowing eyes. They speak the truth, and never of lies. Those eyes that I hold, ever so dear.
My life is perfect, I have everything I need. But this voice inside, is one I must heed. The voice is wanting, the voice is greed.
I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought of you yesterday, and the day before too. Your gentle smile, your kind 'I love you.'
I run for my life with no where to go. You have me enthralled and I cannot escape. You have caught me in the circle of your arms. You command me and I must obey.
Are you blind? can you not see? That it is your words doing this to me? One step closer, one more to go.
When the stars all fade, when they darken and die. When the world we know, just ceases to try. When our morning star fades to a glow.
Are you blind? Can you not see? That it is you doing this to me? You steal my heart, make angels sing.
I can feel it inside me, and it's starting to spread. It all but consumes me, this feeling of dread. I know what is coming, I know what is ahead.
This Is For You
This is for you, just hear me out. It helped me in the midst of my doubt. A gentle touch, a kind word or two.
Words Inside Me
The cycle repeats itself for all of time. The only way to feel, for me, is to rhyme. With fancy words, it may seem like a game.
Reaching for you, memories flash by. I can imagine you face, and I start to cry. I look in my mirror, but all I can see.
The white ocean surrounds me. Drifting, floating, moving so slowly. Brown and gold plants reach up for air.
My life is perfect, I have everything I need.
But this voice inside, is one I must heed.
The voice is wanting, the voice is greed.
The voice will not stop from spreading the seed.
Seeds of anger and seeds of strife.
These are seeds that don't belong in my life.
