I have not been As others were; I have not seen As others saw; I could not bring My passions from a common spring. From the same source I have not taken My sorrow; I could not awaken My heart to joy at the same tone; And all I loved, I loved alone. Then- in my childhood, in the dawn Of a most stormy life- was drawn From every depth of good and ill The mystery which binds me still: From the torrent, or the fountain, From the red cliff of the mountain, From the sun that round me rolled In its autumn tint of gold, From the lightning in the sky As it passed me flying by, From the thunder and the storm, And the cloud that took the form (When the rest of Heaven was blue) Of a demon in my view.
Poetry about sadness. Feeling sad is no crime although the world might wish you to think so. All the feelings in the world never did anybody any harm. It is our feelings that make us human and connect us to the rest of humanity. When you feel sad, it is important to give yourself permission to feel the sadness. Share your feelings with someone who has the sensitivity to give you the space to let the feeling fully be felt. Only then can you begin to let go.
"Falling From Darkness"
Falling from darkness To a place I don't know Everything's moving with no place to go I feel so alone and scared As I fall, I wonder, "Is anyone there?"
As the days and nights pass right by I count the nights I just lay and cry Falling from faith, falling from love Please, is there anyone up above?
Never did I want to feel like this, When the answer lies with the slit of the wrist My mind is racing to find another solution Before it's too late and I'm just an illusion.
No one knows how I really feel I just want him to hold me and help me heal As I fall, I feel the rain I begin to think that may be he isn't the key to ease my pain.
A love poem will not always be long and flowery. Sometimes what you need to say can be very short. In fact it may be the fact that the poem is short that makes it special. Its short length may show that you put the time and effort in to make every word count. You considered carefully every word choice. Every word choice has a reason behind it. A short poem can be the ultimate act of romance when it is given the time and effort that it deserves. From My Heart A million stars up in the sky one shines brighter I can't deny A love so precious a love so true a love that comes from me to you The angels sing when you are near within your arms I have nothing to fear You always know just what to say just talking to you makes my day I love you honey with all of my heart together forever and never to part.
You're the reason I get up to face each hectic day How did our lives get so consumed with nonsense on the way We used to take the time to laugh and play a game or two But now it seems we fight a lot and cry way too much too So when you go to sleep at night I'll slip in by your side I'll hold you close and squeeze you tight and feel amazing pride You're the one that I love best, it's very clear to see With every day I know I'm blessed that you're a part of me Now let's just try to slow it down and savor all that's past For that's what molds our future, and life moves way too fast
