Gentle Reminder

The gentle reminder,
All found in place,
That gentle reminder.

The world gone bright,
The times to come.

The reminder comes,
In those bright days,
And the dark of night.
All to come,
Worth the wait,
Worth the while.

A gentle reminder.
Those fondest of memories.
The beautiful times.
To last a lifetime.
To hold onto.
To cherish.

Worth the struggles and the pain.
Worth the fondness,
To send an occasional message.
To brighten my day,
And another’s.

The gentle reminder,
The brighter day,
Memories, hopes and determination.

Thoughts unable to comprehend.
Happiness in unknown form, unknown quantities.

The beauty, behind the sunrise.
Of a blossoming flower,
Of the deepest purple of dusk.

Oh how is such beauty made real,
This world shown to me.

The possibilities open.
A path unknown,
Yet also clear.

This gentle reminder of being,
Of feeling
Of making.

This gentle reminder.

My gentle reminder.

Fighting The Demons

Fighting off the demons,
The corrupting influences,
A dark force to throw off.
A bringer of only suffering.

A powerless entity,
As I drain them of all power,
Collect my life,
Make it my own.
Bring on the coming future.
Casting out the corruption.

Detoxifying my life of all the darkness,
That the demons use to cling hold,
I’ve found freedom from the darkness.
Claimed light for my own.

Many pieces coming together,
Forming a whole,
Forming coherency,
And a brightness not seen in a while.

Such a long time I was in the dark,
Having lost the light.
Being broken, lost, hurt and inflictng what the demons taught me.
To be cast off,
I now have choice, agency.
To cast out corruption,
To throw the demons aside.

Here I fight,
To claim a happiness once lost.
To find peace, in a tumultous world.
To find love in all things pure,
As it has found me in the unexpected places.

The demons now have no hold.
Yet they will be, an ever-formative part.
Kept in check.
But having made me stronger,
Made me wiser.
Given me great pain.
I will keep them in check,
Cast them out.

Fighting these demons. I win.
Living the life I have found.
Fighting off the demons that still seek to destroy me.

Fighting off the demons.

The Lonely Silence Of The Dark

Lonely silence of the dark,
The dark days gone past,
Those yet to come,

Waiting for those light days, the ones to look forward to.
To hope for,
To live for.

When the darkness of the night is all around,
With silence as the figure lurking in the dark.
The depths of night.
An impenetrable shroud;
Thick, dark, all-consuming.
Suffocating at a touch.

The feeling of life,
The memories returning,
But only for a time.
The deep sadness,
To accompany the lonely silence of the dark.

Out Of Mind

Out of mind,
I hide the feelings,
Scared of where they could take me,
Offered care and kindness.

Trying to keep the pain out of my mind.
To keep in the happiness,
A game of pretend,
To ignore my mind and emotions.
The pain that comes with darkness.
The shining light, that echoes in the darkness.

The mind, clouded with worry, sadness and uncertainty.
Trying to push all feelings out of mind.
Trying to save myself from my demons.

An attempt to hold strong against the dark.
To keep the leeches at bay.
To wipe my mind,
To save the body.

Out of mind is the answer,
Or it must be,
The solution I face,
Only way past it.

Out of mind.
To cope, to save me.

Beautiful Mind

Your beautiful mind,
A world encapsulated,
Pretty and intelligent,
A beautiful mind and kind.

Open, free and radiant.
Funny,
Even to force a smile out of me.

Gentle to the touch,
Deep and thoughtful.

Beauty unquestionable,
Most important,
The mind and heart of gold.
A mind open, smart and capturing.
A heart, kind, sweet and deep.

A beautiful mind,
Trapped in a world-
Unable to compete.

The kindness there,
Worth waiting for,
Left to make my own way,
Hoping for the next day,
To see you, hear your voice.

Here I am,
Happy.
Even when losing my way,
I think back to you,
Your beautiful mind,
The advice you gave.

Oh how I’m stuck in wonder,
At your beautiful mind.

Kind Heart

That kind heart,
The warm smile,
The flow of your hair,

The times,
We laughed, smiled and talked.
Shared personal thoughts, feelings and ideas.

And I couldn’t help,
Falling in love,
Not knowing what happened,
Where did this change,
Why the feeling.

Months apart and feeling no different.
A single message, to brighten my day,

Your skills, talents and intellect.
Blow me away,
Have me dragged into a trance.

Making me want to be a better person
Making the day brighter,
Helping me to let it continue.
Positivly looking at the world.

Oh, how I want to give you all my kindness,
All my care, compassion and effort.
Oh what a kind heart,
Enough to knock me off my feet.

Oh what a kind heart.

Out of Nowhere

Out of nowhere,
A kind message,
To make my day,
Makes me grin in ecstasy,

Imagining your beautiful smile,
Radiant eyes,
A bright face shining bright,
A star to outshine the sun.

Oh how I want to be,
A person to make you happy,
To see your smile,
To make your day.
To try.

To do what I can do,
To make you happy,
Out of nowhere I met you,
Out of nowhere,
A radical shift in my mood.

Helped me into the light,
From the depths of the dark.
My eternal gratitude given held by you.

Remembering,
That night we got close.
The night, gone in a flash,
Not myself- Hadn’t felt happiness in a long time.

Crazy in love,
You coming from nowhere.

Out of nowhere such beauty and kindness.
A kind soul.

Out of nowhere,
I can say I lived.
A time,
Even if never seen again,
Worth many lifetimes of waiting.

For that moment,
That feeling,
The kindness.
Your smile,
The way your hair rests on your shoulder.
For this moment…

Came out of nowhere.

Finding

The finding,
Oh so this feeling.
The greatest moments,
To be found,
Held close.

This finding,
A grip and grasping,
My finding

The happiness to be found through the finding.
The greatest of times.

The uncovered truths,
The meaning.

The great times to come.

My times to find,
Through the finding

Alive in the feeling,
The finding.

The grasp of the day, the feeling.
my feeling.

The grasp of this feeling.
Past the great unknown.

The finding has come,
The great finding.

Missing You

Missing you,
Those times we shared.
The feelings encapsulating me.
Hoping for the the next time.

Showing me the way,
The value of living.
The smallest of moments,
Meaning everything.

Showing me,
The value of living.
That happiness of life.
All it has to offer,
All I have to give.

Giving all I have,
Showing the world my passion,
My strength.
My love.
Having found the way,
Difficult but worth it.
Happy and sad.

Missing you.
As I miss you,
Building my path, my future.
Hoping to see you again.
But until then.

Until then.
While I miss you.
Making a life of my own,
One to make me proud,
Make everyone proud.
As I will be.

My eternal gratitude,
Ever yours.
For what you showed me.
How you helped me.
All we spoke about.
The feeling.
That wonderful feeling.
Missing you.

Missing you.
I lie awake,
Thinking,
Missing you.
But happy.
To have gotten to meet you.
To have found salvation.
A way out of my sadness.

Finding life.
As I’m here,
Missing you greatly,
I’m better,
I’m living,
I’m happy.
But I miss you.
But until we meet again.

Missing you


A poem the person will never see,

Happy-sad, a really good feeling.

My dedication to someone dear and special to my heart.

Oncoming

On comes the path ahead,

A new day,

Thoughts spiralling,

The time to come.

Sitting on a bench,

Thinking about it all.

Thinking, living,

Better than before,

But feeling only a part,

Waiting and wondering.

What happened to it all,

Where did it go?

What happened to get here.

What next?

In the oncoming.

In the place I find myself.

Sitting, waiting, wondering.

Of all the things gone past.

Of all the times gone,

Flown, out of my grasp.

Leaving nothing left.

But memories.

Memories, but with empty substance.

Gone at a chance.

Left without.

I sit here,

Left on a bench.

Wondering and waiting.

Only left is the oncoming.
