    lol cheeky that claiming them as her own. I would never take credit for someone elses work. I've had it done to me once long time ago and I was too nice about it, should of busted the lil feck in front of everyone but instead I pm-ed him about it. Instead I gave him a chance and wouldn't you know he went on to post another poem and claim it as his own but this time it was a well known poet.

    So I had to bust him that time. Bad enough stealing from me but from a well known poet? I have a few of mine published in books and on poetry sites. You should try to write something since its been awhile, would love to read it.

    MIDNIGHT TEARS
    ~
    A winter shadow falls across the land
    you call in soft whispers
    no one will come
    ~
    You hear your voice echoing
    long into the night
    ~
    My tired body lay empty in my bed
    as if I was never there
    lost, forgotten, alone
    ~
    Sleep won't come to me
    the loneliness wont let me be
    ~
    I cry midnight tears
    that never seem to want to stop
    falling into the hole of souls
    no escape, just lonely teardrops
    ~
    I stare out the window
    on this dark balmy night
    wondering who else out there
    feels my plight
    ~
    No wind to carry me
    no heart to bind me
    no love to find me
    ~
    So it is, as it always has been
    loneliness will remain my only friend
    this is the way it will always be
    left here to dwell in this misery
    ~

    I WONDER
    ~
    I wonder, what you see
    when you look at me
    is it the surface
    you think you know
    or can you really
    see my soul
    ~
    I wonder, what you think
    when you read my words
    is it me you get to know
    doe's my soul really show
    ~
    I wonder, do you see me as I am
    as if I'm really there
    or are you just seeing
    the avatar that I wear
    ~
    I wonder, what you think
    of all the things I say
    just what kind of image
    do I really display
    ~
    I wonder, can you see
    really down deep
    into the heart of me
    where all the truths I keep
    ~
    I really really wonder
    what it is, you see
    ~

    LAYING ON THE BEACH
    ~
    I'm laying on the beach
    not another soul within reach
    as I lay there and look up in the sky
    my heart releases a heavy sigh
    remembering back to another day
    when the pain wasn't in the way
    ~
    When smiles came with ease
    as you took the time to please
    when you cared about how I felt
    and cutting remarks weren't dealt
    ~
    How you used to hold me tenderly
    and imparted sweet words to me
    in the distance a radio croons
    playing now, our favorite tune
    ~
    Reminding me of how we danced all night
    gently swaying, holding each other tight
    thinking bout it now, hurts like hell
    the tears in my eyes, now start to swell
    ~
    Fighting hard to hold them in
    but I have no control
    it's a fight I can not win
    so down my cheeks they start to flow
    ~
    What happened to make you so bitter
    what caused you to change your way
    I would of never thought you a quitter
    but you proved me wrong
    when you walked away
    ~
    You used to be so gentle and kind
    giving me your all
    and the only reason I can find
    is it had to do with that phone call
    ~
    You said you had nothing to hide
    it had nothing to do with me
    then why not in me, confide
    so I can help to set your burdens free
    ~
    Instead you started putting me down
    telling me everything I did was wrong
    replacing all my smiles, with frowns
    but even that didn't last for long
    ~
    As two weeks later, I came home
    found a note, that left me perplexed
    said something bout needing to roam
    and something about your ex?
    ~
    So I'm laying on the beach
    thinking bout back then
    the tears, again to the surface reach
    and I swipe them back again
    I'll never understand
    what made you leave that day
    all I know as I lay in this sand
    is that it's been two years
    since you went away
    ~

    COME WHAT MAY
    ~
    As i've looked upon the past
    I see it wasn't always a blast
    how I thought it would come about
    had some how all turned inside out
    ~
    If I knew then what I know now
    I would of changed a few things some how
    but today is a brand new day
    and I look to the future, come what may

    JOURNEY
    ~
    I've journeyed to a place where the sun don't shine
    but still it was bright and the imagery flowed like wine
    the serene happy place was filled with bliss
    you asked me what kind of place is this?
    you say whats this place all about?
    I will tell you, if you need to find out
    ~
    It's everything you can imagine
    this kind of journey is taken within
    so close your eyes and let it flow
    begin your own journey in your soul

    Darkness Within
    ~
    Sitting here alone
    eased back in my chair
    staring intently
    at the flickering flame
    of the candle as it burns
    darkness consumes me
    filling up my soul
    the darkness
    clouding my vision
    as I watch
    the shadows on the wall
    no light now within
    just a vast array
    of pale grays
    ~
    I struggle to free my mind
    of this misery within
    but the emptyness
    the sadness, the despair
    shrouds me with a cloak
    of infinite armour
    engulfing me
    not letting go
    ~
    Now, through closed lids
    I still seethe flame
    hellacious images
    dance in my brain
    and from them
    I can not hide
    for the power
    of the images
    melds me to my chair
    so I open up my eyes now
    and just sit and deeply stare
    and dwell within the
    dark, dank despair

    Just One Night
    ~
    Oh, just to have one night with you
    nothing less then that would do
    even more would be cool
    but just to have one night with you
    ~
    One night, is all I ask for
    more than I could ever hope for
    If god would just grant me
    that one night
    the chance to hold you tight
    it would be pure delight
    ~
    We could sit out on the boardwalk
    hand in hand and sit and talk
    while gazing in each others eyes
    under the star filled skies
    searching each others soul
    seeing each others heart unfold
    or stroll along the beach
    discussing dreams, now within reach
    ~
    We could picnic in the park
    alone at night in the dark
    just you and me and the moonlight to help us see
    or we could slowdance on the shore
    at the edge of the oceans floor
    in all the moonlights splendor
    and of course it wouldn't end there
    ~
    Whatever we did, would feel so right
    I'd be so happy holding you tight
    making love with you, long into the night
    wherever we are, in my bed, or at the park
    we'll soon be emitting lots of sparks
    or on the floor, at the shore
    our hearts will fly to heavens door

    In a cove, on a boat, thats gently rocking
    to each one of our moves, it will be mocking
    gently swaying back and for'
    begging each other for more
    embraced now in each others hides
    keeping in rhythm with the tide
    ~
    Yes, just to have one night with you
    would be a dream come true
    ~

    VISIONS
    ~
    Sitting here silently
    in a candlelit room
    visions of you
    start to bloom
    visions of that sweet smile
    on your face
    float through my mind at a
    very slow pace
    ~
    Visions of you and me
    walking slowly hand in hand
    along the sands
    of some tropical beach
    visions
    once only dreamt of
    now, within reach
    ~
    Visions of me
    wrapped safe in your arms
    far away from
    day to day harms
    truly enchanted
    by your passion and charm
    ~
    Visions of us dancing
    cheek to cheek
    the way you look at me
    leaving me weak
    gazing into
    the windows to your soul
    feeling the energy
    start to flow
    ~
    Visions of how
    each time we meet
    you make me feel
    so complete
    ~
