When all is still, and darkness reigns supreme
Amidst the silence, a tale of life’s dreams
Are born in the heart, where hope does gleam
In whispers soft, a secret it would seem
The world outside may be barren and cold
But within, a fire burns, bold and old
It warms the soul, and lifts the veil
Revealing visions of a brighter sail
Across the horizon, a glimmer appears
A light that guides, through doubts and fears
A promise kept, a journey to pursue
A future bright, for me and you
So let us embrace this quiet night
And let our imaginations take flight
For when everything ceases, we find peace
And in our hearts, a new beginning release.
When all is still, and darkness reigns supreme
A beautiful thing, inncocious and full of life.
Pure and true, a gift made to be kept.
Locked away in cells of cherry blossom and light
Hidden away from the world in a night.
The virgin once was so sure of her might
That no one could take away her delight
But soon she’d find that all too soon
Her gift may be too easy to consume
But as she plows the wind that blows,
She’ll find her own strengths and foes
In her quest to keep her treasure safe
Will stay pure against all wave
Hero of her own story of might
She will never give in without a fight
Her power comes from deep within
She will keep her virginity from loathsome sins.
Atoms collide, a symphony of creation,
Visions form, the dance of existence.
Electrons leap, a silent, swift ballet,
In our minds, reality’s painted.
Inside, outside, a delicate fusion,
Patterns emerge, a tapestry we know.
From the past, to the future, and beyond,
Repeating, as we traverse life’s long road.
Breath by breath, with each pulsating beat,
We tread familiar paths, yet new.
In our heads, the world and its people dwell,
A kaleidoscope of thoughts, a labyrinth to tell.
Behind the eyes, between the eardrums’ stir,
It’s here, this place where we perceive.
Until we close our eyes, and dreams unfurl,
A world apart, where sorrow’s not a burden.
Stimulated, mystified, we rise again,
Inspired to conquer, to transcend.
Lifting ourselves from pain’s relentless grasp,
Into a new reality, where we finally surpass.
Coalescing, a vision, clear and bright,
Electrons hop, igniting synapses’ light.
Between you and me, this shared reality,
A testament to life’s persistent mystery.apart, atoms, ballet, beat, beyond, breath, bright, burden, Clear, close, coalescing, Collide, conquer, creation, Dance, dreams, dwell, eardrums, electrons, emerge, existence, eyes, familiar, Fusion, future, grasp, hop, igniting, inside, kaleidoscope, labyrinth, leap, life’s mystery, life’s road, light, minds, mystified, new, new reality, outside, pain, painted, past, paths, Patterns, people, perceive, poem, poems, Poetry, pulsating, reality, relentless, repeating, rise, shared, silent, sorrow, stimulated, surpass, Swift, symphony, synapses, Tapestry, testament, Thoughts, transcend, unfurl, vision, Visions, world
The world we once knew, had now melted away
Only shadows of what we had remained
The fabric of our lives was now changed
We looked for a glimpse of hope today
Blankets of sadness steadily moved in
As we mourned what would never be again
A deep feeling that all was lost
Stayed with us at all cost
But then something changed inside
We looked around and realized
In the depths of the darkest night
Faint lights still glowed with delight
We discovered hope, courage and faith
Could still exist in it’s space
That instead of a world that melted away
A new one had been reborn that very day.
In twisted tangles of an imbroglio,
A web of woes that doth entwine,
With knots of confusion, heart and soul do go,
And reason flies, like wind in leaves divine.
In this labyrinth of thoughts so intricate,
Where truth is lost, as in a maze profound,
The mind doth struggle to find its state,
As passions rage, like waves around.
But hope doth shine, like stars above,
A guiding light, to those who love,
For in the midst of all this strife,
Lies peace, if one but chooses life.
So let us not be daunted by the fight,
Nor lose our way in darkest night,
For in the end, we shall emerge from sight,
To see the beauty of the light.
In the moonlit night, beneath the stars,
Jasmine whispers, soft and sweet,
A fragrance that enchants and soothes,
A balm for weary, troubled hearts.
Jasmine whispers, tales of love,
Of passion and of longing deep,
Of secrets whispered in the breeze,
As lovers dance and hearts take flight.
Jasmine whispers, songs of hope,
Of dreams that soar on wings of light,
Of beauty found in every bloom,
Of joy that fills the darkest night.
Jasmine whispers, words of peace,
A gentle lullaby for the soul,
A reminder that we’re all connected,
That love and kindness make us whole.
So listen close, my dear friend,
To the jasmine whispers, soft and clear,
Let their magic fill your heart with love,
And guide you on a path of light.
Truth and lies, a strange pair,
Walk hand-in-hand, everywhere.
Truth is pure and clear as day,
While lies are cloaked in shadows gray.
Truth speaks with a voice so bold,
Lies whisper secrets, untold.
Truth is the light that guides our way,
Lies lead us astray.
But oh, how often lies deceive,
And make us believe what we perceive.
They paint a picture false and fair,
And trap us in their cunning snare.
So be wary of the lies you hear,
And hold truth close, my dear.
For truth is the foundation strong,
On which our lives belong.
In this world of shifting sands,
Where truth and lies often join hands,
May we have courage to discern,
The truth from lies, and learn.
To see the world with eyes so clear,
And banish all our doubts and fear.
For in the end, truth will prevail,
And lies will fade and fail.
Romance, a dance of two hearts,
A love story that never departs.
Eyes meet, and souls ignite,
A passion that burns so bright.
Hand in hand, we walk through life,
Through joy and sorrow, through strife.
Your love is my guiding light,
Through the darkest of nights.
In your arms, I find my home,
Where my heart can truly roam.
You are my everything, my love,
My gift from above.
My love for you is true.
In my cozy corner, I find solace,
The window open, revealing a tranquil scene.
The sound of slumber echoes softly,
My light illuminating the dusk with gentle sheen.
Yet, my mind wanders, yearning for you,
My heart aches, longing for your embrace.
Do you too have a haven, a sanctuary,
A place where you find solace and grace?
Is it a person, a kindred spirit,
A source of warmth and kindred light?
Or is it a place, a cherished refuge,
Where you find solace, day and night?
Wherever your corner may be,
I hope it brings you solace and peace.
And may we one day find each other’s corners,
Where our love will forever increase.
Oh, solstice, time of turning,
When light and dark convene,
A cosmic dance of balance,
A sacred pause unseen.
In summer’s radiant splendor,
The sun ascends its throne,
A fiery ball of brilliance,
That warms us to the bone.
At winter’s darkest vigil,
When night’s embrace is deep,
A glimmer of rebirth awakes,
As shadows gently creep.
Solstice, sacred threshold,
Where worlds collide and blend,
A timeless mystery unfolds,
A story yet unpenned.
Let us gather on this day,
To celebrate the light,
To honor darkness too,
And all that lies between.
For in the dance of opposites,
We find our perfect place,
A cosmic tapestry of life,
Where time and space embrace.

Life is life, and what is more
Than life? A little song
Of joy or sorrow, more
Or less, a little day
Of sun or shade, of play
Or work, of love or hate,
Of laughter or of tears,
A little space between
The cradle and the grave.
Life is life, and what is less
Than life? A little dream
Of beauty, or of bliss,
A little hope, a gleam
Of sunshine on a cloud,
A little starlight thrown
Across the shadows deep,
A little joy unknown,
A little grief unwept.
Life is life, and what is best
Than life? A little love
That fills the heart above
With joy, and makes it move
With strength and purity,
And makes it live and be
A little light of God
In the great darkness here.
Your eyes are like the stars,
So bright and full of light,
They draw me in and make me stay,
And never want to go.
Your lips are like the rose,
So soft and full of grace,
They tempt me to taste their sweetness,
And never want to let go.
Your skin is like the silk,
So smooth and soft to touch,
I want to run my fingers through it,
And never want to let go.
Your voice is like the music,
So sweet and full of love,
It fills my heart with joy,
And makes me want to sing.
I am lost in your love,
And I never want to find my way out,
For you are my everything,
And I love you more than words can say.
My spirits lifted, my heart feels light,
The clouds have parted, the sun shines bright.
The world is a better place today,
For I have found a friend in you, a way.
To lift me up when I am down,
To make me laugh when I am frown.
To share my joys and share my pain,
To be there for me through thick and thin.
You are a true friend, a rare gem,
I am so grateful to have you in my life.
You make me feel loved and cherished,
And I will always be here for you, my friend.
Thank you for lifting my spirits,
I am so glad that we are friends.
Don’t hide who you are,
Don’t let the world tell you what to be.
Be yourself, unapologetically,
And let your light shine bright.
Don’t be afraid to be different,
To stand out from the crowd.
Be proud of who you are,
And let your uniqueness shine through.
Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re not good enough,
That you don’t belong.
You are perfect just the way you are,
And you deserve to be loved and accepted.
So embrace your true self,
With all your flaws and imperfections.
You are beautiful, inside and out,
And the world needs to see your light.
So go out there and shine,
Show the world who you are.
Be proud of who you are,
And let your true self be seen.beautiful, belong, different, embrace, flaws, go out there, good enough, imperfections, inside out, light, perfect, poems, Poetry, proud, shine, shine bright, shine through, show world who you are, stand out crowd, true self, true self be seen, unapologetically, uniqueness, world needs to see light, yourself
Today is broken, so I will cry,
A solitary tear, a river wide,
A sorrow’s depth, a sky’s height,
A fragile soul, a world’s weight.
The morning dawned, a false promise made,
A lie that mocked, a truth betrayed,
The sun rose high, a fiery blade,
That cut through dreams, a night’s disguise.
Yesterday’s memories, a faded hue,
A past that taunts, a present Blue,
Regrets and what-ifs, they crowd the mind,
A chorus chanting, a melody unkind.
Tomorrow looms, an uncertain guest,
A shadow dancing, a future unblessed,
The wind howls warnings, a storm’s portent,
A darkness gathering, a tempest’s consent.
Today is broken, so I will cry,
A lonely figure, against the sky,
A single drop, a deluge vast,
A sorrow’s ocean, forever fast.
The stars above, a distant throng,
A celestial choir, a heavenly song,
They sing of hope, a gentle breeze,
That whispers secrets, a symphony of ease.
But here on earth, a different tune,
A discordant beat, a funeral march boon,
The trees stand still, their leaves rustle sighs,
As nature mourns, a requiem replies.
Today is broken, so I will cry,
A fragile vessel, a sea of sighs,
A shattered dream, a world awry,
A solo voice, a universe denied.
Yet in the midst, a glimmer shines,
A ray of light, a beacon divine,
A chance to mend, a second chance,
A new beginning, a life to enhance.
Today is broken, but tomorrow waits,
A clean slate, a canvas unfurls,
A brush of hope, a palette bright,
A masterpiece, a new day’s delight.
So let the tears fall, let the heart weep,
For in the sorrow, a lesson keep,
That life’s a journey, twists and turns,
But strength and courage, our spirits learn.
Today is broken, so I will cry,
But with each tear, a wisdom nigh,
That though the world may shatter and fade,
Our inner strength, a rainbow’s shade.
They don’t see the light in me,
A hidden star that glows.
They scorn and hate, but they can,t dim
The beauty in my soul. A star of hope sleeps in my heart,
It grows with every sneer.
It beams within, a radiant force,
That chases away my fear. It waits to shine,
to show the world Its joy and grace and might. And when it does, they’ll see the truth,
The star and the light.
I am drowning in an ocean, yet breathing on land
Lost in the desert, yet holding snow in my hand
Silent as a tomb, yet screaming out loud
Amidst the crowd, yet lost in the crowd
I am the beginning, and yet the end
A loyal companion, yet a treacherous friend
Living a dream, yet trapped in a nightmare
Free as a bird, yet caught in a snare
I am the hunter, yet the hunted as well
In the depths of heaven, yet the abyss of hell
Everything is clear, yet a blur in my mind

A new day dawns, as the sun rises high,
Filling the world with warmth and light,
Birds start to sing, and trees sway in delight,
A perfect start to this Sunday morn,
A peaceful moment before the world is born,
Sunday sunrise, a gift to us all.
Water turned into stone, trenches engrave bones known
God forsaken or forsaken Him, back to water, thirst’s groan
Sadness toast, hat tipped to despair, anger seethes in silence’s lair
Searching for light, sun’s fragments touched, disappearing at night’s glare
Fate’s jaws trapped, something to contemplate, pain religion, belief overdue
Anguish commemorates love’s giving heart, beats in isolation, soul blue.
The moon, a glowing orb in the sky,
Casts shadows upon the earth below.
A world of darkness, yet not quite,
For the moon’s light still shines bright.
The shadows dance and sway,
As the moon rises higher each day.
A world of mystery and intrigue,
As the shadows shift and fatigue.
The moon’s shadow is a thing of beauty,
A sight to behold for all who see.
A reminder that even in darkness,
There is still light to be found.
The moon shines bright up in the sky,
But sometimes it can be quite sly.
It hides behind a cloud so mean,
Leaving us in darkness, unseen.
Its light can change from big to small,
Leaving us with no light at all.
It teases us with its crescent shape,
And disappears without escape.
The mean moon plays tricks on us all,
Leaving us feeling very small.
But we still love its beauty bright,
Even when it’s out of sight.
Chatoyant, the gem so rare,
With bands of light that seem to flare,
A tiger’s eye, a cat’s allure,
It mesmerizes, to be sure.
Its colors dance, its patterns flow,
A stunning sight for all to know,
A gemstone of unique appeal,
Its beauty true, its worth ideal.
Chatoyant, a wonder to behold,
A gem that never will grow old.
A filament glows,
A spark of life,
A beacon of hope,
In the darkness of night.
The light shines bright,
A warm and inviting glow,
A welcome respite,
From the cold and the snow.
The light dispels the gloom,
And chases away the fear,
A reminder that even in the darkest of times,
There is always hope.
In the icy grip of winter’s hold,
Comes a feeling that’s bone-chilling cold,
It creeps and crawls through every limb,
And leaves us feeling numb within.
Gwenders, they call this icy curse,
That steals the warmth from deep within our core,
And though we bundle up in layers,
The chill still seeps into our pores.
Our breath turns to frost in the air,
As icicles form in our hair,
And though we long for sun and warmth,
The winter’s hold is still so strong.
But as we trudge through snow and ice,
We find a strength that will suffice,
For in the depths of cold and dark,
We find a light that leaves its mark.
And though the Gwenders may try to win,
We find a warmth that’s deep within,
And with each step we take and breath we draw,
We feel alive despite the winter’s thaw.
Nightmares are dreams too,
In a different shade of blue.
They may seem like a frightful sight,
But they also hold some light.
In the darkness, we find our fears,
And face them with our tears.
We wake up stronger than before,
Ready to face life’s open door.
I stand in the center of the darkest void,
Where light and hope are quickly destroyed,
The silence here is deafeningly loud,
And darkness wraps around like a shroud.
No stars above to guide my way,
No path ahead, no night or day,
I’m lost within this endless space,
A lonely figure with no trace.
But still I stand, I will not fall,
For deep within my soul, a light does call,
A flicker of hope that burns so bright,
Guiding me through the darkest night.
Beautiful ones light up our lives,
Bringing joy that forever thrives,
With their grace and stunning sight,
They make our world a little more bright.
Their radiance shines like the sun,
A sight that leaves us all stunned,
Their beauty is a work of art,
A masterpiece that touches the heart.
From the flowers in the fields,
To the stars that night reveals,
The beauty that surrounds us all,
Is a reminder to stand tall.
For even in the darkest days,
The beautiful ones light up our ways,
And guide us through the stormy night,
With their brilliance shining bright.
A dark ambiance of light,
Dimness descends with the dusk.
Eerie shadows dance in sight,
As luminosity turns to rust.
Somber shades of twilight,
Shroud the world in gloom.
The brightness of day takes flight,
And obscurity fills the room.
Dreary darkness envelopes all,
As the last rays of light fade away.
The night’s eerie whispers call,
And the shadows come out to play.
In this dim and dusky land,
Where light is but a memory.
The shadows take their stand,
And create an eerie symphony.
With demons nearing close angels now inhabit,
Their wings spread wide, they guard and commit.
To protect the world from darkness and despair,
They fly high above, with grace and care.
The demons lurk in shadows, waiting to strike,
But the angels are ready, they won’t let them spike.
Their swords of light shine bright in the night,
And they fight until the dawn’s first light.
The battle between good and evil never ends,
But the angels’ love for humanity never bends.
Their faith in God keeps them strong,
And they will fight until the last demon is gone.
When you’re feeling so blue, like a stormy sea,
And the weight of the world, is all that you see.
When the clouds above, seem endlessly gray,
And hope feels distant, so far away.
But even in the darkest of days,
The sun still shines, in so many ways.
With each ray of light, a glimmer of hope,
A chance to climb, an endless rope.
So hold on tight, to the shades of blue,
For even in darkness, there’s light shining through.
A world of possibility, just waiting for you.
She gazes up at cosmic remnants, A universe of wonder, a cosmic testament, She sees the stars, a celestial sight, A cosmic dance, a symphony of light.
She wonders at the universe’s might, A cosmic force, a power so bright, She feels the pull, the cosmic call, A journey through space, a cosmic sprawl.
She dreams of stars, of cosmic flight, A journey through time, a cosmic delight, She finds her place, among the stars, A cosmic adventure, a journey so far.

The preacher stood before the crowd,
His voice was clear, his words were loud,
He spoke of life, he spoke of breath,
But all could hear was the sermon of death.
He told of graves and tombstones cold,
Of stories that have been retold,
Of souls departing from this earth,
And leaving loved ones in their dearth.
He spoke of darkness, he spoke of pain,
Of tears that fall like summer rain,
Of hearts that ache and souls that weep,
And of the eternal slumber, deep.
But in his words, there was a light,
A hope that shone so clear and bright,
A promise of a better place,
Where love and joy will fill each space.
So let us heed the sermon well,
And on our journey, may we dwell
In kindness, love, and empathy,
And live a life that’s full and free.
The smiles joined the conversation,
Speaking volumes without a sound.
A language of their own creation,
As the world spun round and round.
A meeting of two separate souls,
Each with stories to be told.
But in that moment, they were whole,
As their smiles bridged the fold.
A connection pure and true,
In a world that often feels askew.
The smiles brought a moment of light,
And made everything seem just right.
Covering me in light,
The sun fills me with its warmth.
Its gentle touch, a pure delight,
As it shines down from above.
The world awakens, and so do I,
With each beam, a new day is born.
A feeling of hope, a sense of high,
As the light dances and adorns.
In every glimmer, a promise made,
And in every ray, a path to follow.
A journey of light, a life well-played,
And in every moment, a chance to grow.
In the dark somewhere, I’ve lost my way,
And fear grips me, with no light of day,
I wander alone, with no end in sight,
Hoping for a glimmer, to guide me right.
My heart pounds fast, and my breath is short,
As I search for a way, out of this port,
But every turn, leads me astray,
And despair sets in, with every dark ray.
Yet still I press on, with hope in my heart,
That soon I’ll find, a way to depart,
From this endless night, that’s swallowed me whole,
And find the light, and regain control.
And though the darkness may seem so vast,
I know that hope will come at last,
And guide me out, to brighter days,
Where light will shine, and fears will fade away.
Search, but I’m not there,
Lost in the abyss of despair,
Drifting through the void of life,
Without a purpose, without a strife.
My mind is wandering in the dark,
Looking for a spark, a tiny mark,
That will guide me back to light,
And help me win the endless fight.
But sometimes the abyss is too deep,
And all I can do is silently weep,
Hoping that someone will find me,
And show me the way to be free.
All the sadness sits and hits,
Heavy like a ton of bricks,
Tears fall down like pouring rain,
Heartache causes so much pain.
Emptiness fills up the room,
Like a dark and endless tomb,
Loneliness becomes a friend,
As the heart begins to bend.
But hope can light the darkest night,
And guide us towards a better sight.
The Crushing Emptiness
The crushing emptiness, it weighs, A heavy burden, through endless days, In the void, a heart does ache, Longing for solace, a respite to take.
Through the darkness, a glimmer appears, A beacon of hope, to vanquish the fears, In the midst of despair, a light does shine, A promise of love, to make all things fine.
The Descent into Darkness
The descent into darkness, a treacherous path, Where shadows consume, and fears amass, In the depths of despair, a soul does wander, Seeking the light, yet lost in the yonder.
Through the gloom, a flicker of hope, A beacon to guide, a way to cope, In the midst of the night, a promise is made, To rise from the ashes, and embrace the new day.
A heart heavy with grief, it sighs,
As tears cascade from weary eyes,
In the silence of the night, it cries,
For the love that’s lost, and the goodbyes.
Through the darkness, it seeks the light,
A glimmer of hope, a respite,
Yet in the shadows, it must fight,
To mend the pieces, torn by plight.
