Biography of Sarah Child
Sarah Child Poems
Sourceless voices-echo in my mind Heatless fires-eat away at my soul Invisible landscapes-play out like scenes before my eyes My body resides here on earth-but my mind wanders elsewhere
The way your rarely heard laughter-echoes in my ears How your obsidian eyes light up-when the battle starts Your black unruly hair blows in the wind- Slamming your intoxicating scent into my nose
To you I entrusted my heart-my very soul You were my lifeblood And the reason my heart continued beating When all else said it shouldn’t
I look into a mirror And see four different faces looking back at me All are mine-but none are me One seeks solitude-longing for the darkness
Remember the days when we were young Seeing the world through innocent eyes And gazing up at the stars in undying wonder When everything was simple and good.
I’ll be here for you always Whenever you need me the most To chase away your nightmares And dry the tears from your face.
Why is it that they all say they are my friends Only to wait for me to turn my back, so they can drive a knife into it Why am I always lonely
Beautiful angel-fallen angel You broke my heart-and left me to die Now I lay broken and chained to the floor Withering away until there is nothing left
I left you-broken on the floor Turned my back on the world-and on you You were always there-but I never saw you-blinded by hate Always ready to pick me up when I fell
Far From Home
I’m stuck in this unfamiliar place, With all these unfamiliar people, Another day in this foreign land, And I’m sure to go mad.
Wandering For Eternity
Alone I walk through the darkness that is my mind My desires trapping me…forcing me into solitude I did not wish for this life To be alone…to be forgotten
Dark circles under my eyes
Amplified by my porcelain skin
My arms wrapped around my knees
Slowly I rock myself back and forth
I don’t see what is there
I only see where I want to be
An imaginary world
