poem: Take me to a Place


Take me to a place

where you feel no pain

where no one cries

where no troubles exist


Show me the path

that I need to follow

to find this land

where everything works


Can anyone hear me cry?

Because right now 

I am so very lost

so very tired and broken

Forever searching

but my legs are weary

jaded and heavy

I cannot go much further


Carry me to this place

where I can swallow this pain

where I can rest on my breath

and start over again




poem: Plea


carry me up a rainbow

seizing colours drenched in soothing sun

hug me with a morning

freshly draped in shimmering dew

cushion me with floating clouds

blowing away all troublesome thoughts

wrap me in the glimmer of the moon

warming my night with a thousand stars
