Throwback Thursday Poetry: Last Wishes

look inside this life of mine
to find the reasons why i died
some would say the way i lived
brought about my unholy end
but i think the path i chose
was the best one, that’s what i know
so to you who hated me
i’m gone for all eternity
anyone who cared that day
when i died and i went away
though few of you there may’ve been
i hope you remember again
this sad life i fought to keep
and i lost so miserably

Flashback Friday Poetry: My Only Wish

the Welcome Wagon passed again
to greet those awful merry men
lost in shame with no time to mend
my only wish; to have a friend

the dreams of the youth in my head
forgotten dreams to lose again
in a life with no hope for men
my only wish; to find a gem

the unfortunate one goes on
expecting nothing from beyond
lost in tragedy far too long
my only wish; i feel too fond

listening to the spring bird’s song
impales the soul and makes it calm
nothing afterwards seems so wrong
my only wish; another song

floating through all the nothingness
facing all those who are faceless
to live my life without anguish
that is truly my only wish
