Premium Member A Poetry Collection


Sand falls
Through the glass
Love falls
Within the past
Memories dance
They never last
Head in my hands
As I stare overhead
At the hourglass

Falling Down Stairs

Stairs broken
Wheels unspoken
I fell
Grasping for air

Whenever I am out
And take along my guitar.

''Is it a guitar'' people say
''No an ironing board''

Slowly comes.....and quickly goes
Restless nights....forever long
In the valley of the song

who was where

any longer
